I wrote this on my Blackberry while on the subway.  There are two ways you can read it.  All in one long stride or skip formats.  So read all the regular fonts first - then the italicized.  The italicized is what actually was occurring on the subway and the regular font is what I was thinking during those moments.

So I am standing at Pape station after my Hip Hop dance class wondering why I am standing alone?!? 100 metres of him ... I. step on the train and I am getting farther and farther...

station . stop . station . 
People exit ... people enter ... people sit
People read ... Little boy sneezes ...

I have little tolerance but I am patient. I rather not fight so I surrender. I stepped on the train as he wanted.

Victoria Park ... 
2 more stops 'til mine. 
Victoria Park ... 
At a stand still ... 
Waiting patiently. 
Listening to "Losing my way" by Justin Timberlake.

I take things as they are. If the light is Green - I go, if it is Red - I stop.

Boy stares in to my eyes. 
My eyes smile.

I no longer run reds because I am trying to listen to your words from your lips and your eyes, I do not negate them.

Kennedy.  I am at my stop.
