Once, a woman with kind eyes and a sun hat gave me directions in a voice so pure and sweet that I trusted her completely. I would have trusted her with anything; she did not ask for anything, but if she had, I would have given it gladly. She only said, Turn left, then turn right at the light, then keep going. Eventually you will see it on your left. I smiled and thanked her and she smiled back, a soft, comfortable smile that kept me warm and safe.
