Like most of New Yorkers traveling on trains, I tend to submerge myself in my own little world with help from my headsets, listening to podcasts or music while I sketches the daily lives of New Yorkers on trains. Last night, this little girl, sitting across from me, must have been in middle school, was looking at my sketchbook, so I started sketching her, she gave me a shy smile. I smiled back. Like all subway rides, people get in, people get out, trains get empty, trains fill up. But last night, I somehow noticed my field of vision never really got blocked by anybody as the train moved from stop to stop, by the time I looked up and around, I was so moved by what all the passengers did, as they kept a respective semi-circle of empty space between me and my sketching subject so I can finish my sketch before my stop. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH!! the little girl and the passenger of my 4 train home last night. You Rock!!
