The taxi driver seemed like the happiest guy, not something you normally see in a New York City taxi driver.
Meanwhile, I was in the backseat, busy on my cell phone speaking to the airlines.
Did I want to be on the phone with the airline agent or chatting it up with the jolly Dalai Lama-lovin’ cab driver?
We are faced with these moments everyday: The Smartphone vs The Moment.

This morning, I hung up the cell phone and learned a valuable lesson from the Buddhist taxi driver. It was my meanignful connection of the day (1:1:1). To read what I learned from the taxi driver and to learn more about 1:1:1, visit here.
