Hello

Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

"Kevin walked down the street, with his wooden amulet around the neck, his eyes closed and holding a box of chocolate sticks wrapped in a light brown paper and yellow bow.

He looked at a street vendor who was selling alphabet wooden letters of the alphabet in plastic bags. The street vendor kicked involuntary one of the plastic bags. Kevin immediately bought the alphabet wooden letters. He put the bag in his backpack and continued walking.

After he walked one hour in direction to the old theater, watching the old houses and the buildings that he saw every day when he was at high school, Kevin sat on a bench and a wrote a few words in a new sheet of his copybook."


Thanks.

Dear teechar:

First of all, thanks for your answer.

Kevin immediately bought the alphabet wooden letters in plastic bag after the street vendor kicked it, because he believed it was a sign from the karma. (Kevin is a really superstitious person.)

We don't say that something was "a sign from the karma".

He believed it was a sign.
He believed it was a sign from above.
He believed it was a sign from a higher power.
He believed it was karma.
