Encounter 出会い

This Buddha head is bigger than a human head. It is a hand-made wood sculpture from Bali. I ran into to his head on the street in Astoria, Queens one night. This Buddha was thrown out on the street at the garbage area. There was another woman who had found this before me, and she was looking at it for a while. I ran towards the head, bent down on my knees and held it in my arms and said loudly to her, "I am a Buddhist. I must have this!!!" She smiled and left. I felt badly afterwards so I tried to catch her, but she was gone. I looked at the Buddha. He was smiling at me. OK, perhaps you meant to be mine....? :)
