This week was thank you notes to familiar strangers who brighten up life in New York --
the especially-helpful train conductor
the newspaper salesman with a smile for everyone
the exuberant Time Out New York newspaper distributor
the warm duo in the food truck
the gym attendant who makes us all feel like a million bucks.
These constant figures are like little rest stops for the soul in the daily marathon of New York life. A big thanks to them for their energy and brightness, they sure are important pieces in The Big Ample puzzle.
