A Woman with multiple sclerosis goes to a local coop at the end of a busy workday. After fighting to find a parking spot in the crowded lot, she gets a call from her boyfriend. They talk about the neurology appointment she had earlier that day, and how the doctor dismissed her, she’s experiencing problems walking. They hang up. She has a meltdown in her car. She pulls herself together enough to go into the store. A homeless musician plays mandolin outside the entrance. He saw her pull in the lot and watches her walk up to him. She digs a few coins out her purse to give him. He takes the opportunity to talk to her about how fast we are traveling through the Universe. His tall-tale reframes the way she’s been thinking about her situation. She realizes she’s been blocking her own momentum with negative thoughts about herself.
