It’s like waiting for a pin to drop.

I walked into a train car today and there was a weird energy in the place.

People were smiling — there was a cheerful tilt when they spoke, a tiny glint in their eyes — that it was almost contagious.

You couldn’t talk to someone and not have your lip curl upward at the edges.

I wasn’t used to it.

It was unnerving, sort of.

Pleasantly alarming, kind of.

It made me feel oddly enough that I had to look around, turn my head from one side to another, just to see if anyone else felt the same undeniably light energy that I could.

The guy next to me took notice. He smiled at me and said, “Feels strange, doesn’t it?

Optimism?”

And I looked around the car again, at the faces of complete strangers and their reckless smiles braving the world and thought, yeah,

Yeah it does feel strange.

I always did like strange things.
