The AFTERWORD to the Story below: Today, the stranger who's now become a sort of friend. I saw her on the road today. I running; her driving on Park Avenue. A section that was desolate at the time as I had just turned onto the road from a side street going North. As she drove north I ran on the south side, running defensively (as is the unwritten running rule) going north. She slowed and called my name out. "Jody..." Me: "Hey Leigh!" Leigh, "I've been reading the book you gave me. It's great!" I replied, :"Oh I'm so glad."
