the large woman

I saw a large woman walking down the street the other day. I’m not talking over weight, ok maybe a little. She was at least 6′ 5″ 275 lbs. She could play lineman for any Div I college team.

I wondered about how her life has been. Most of us strive to not get noticed. At least when we’re young. Talk about sticking out in a crowd. Who knows maybe she is a man in transition. Maybe she had to take hormones to grow and something went haywire.  All I know is that I noticed her with kindness and wondered how many times she had experienced that kind of kindness from a stranger.
