Well, I think I've been an angel....
Sort of kidding but not really.
10 or 12 years ago I was single, and working a waitress job at night to
make some extra cash. I had just finished my waitress shift. I had a pocketful of money and hopped into a cab because it February and we were having a freezing bitter cold spell, like 20 below or more for several days in a row. Nobody was on the streets.

It was 11:30 or 12:00 at night, and I just shouted to the driver "pull over". I opened the cab door and motioned for her to get in. Without saying a word she slid right in.

Not that I haven't done good deeds or charity work since that---but I feel that act was inspired, effortless, and completely in the flow of the universe---I also feel that it didn't come from "me".
