I Am In Love With Life For No Reason Sometimes

Hi people! Well, it is a very overcast, misty kind of day here in Brooklyn, NY and yet I am in the mood for this weather today so I am loving it! I had some lovely experiences this morning. After twittering for a while Follow Me I'm the Pied Piper! I worked on some earrings for my Etsy shop and then felt a little peckish. That is a cool word that means hungreh! So I bundled myself up and took a walk across the park, Sunset Park, that is, and went to a little bodega I discovered yesterday that had pretty decent basic produce including perfectly ripe avocadoes for 99 cents each! So this morning was my second trip there and I picked up a few things. After I paid the nice lady, she said to me, with a smile, "Gracias, tiene un buen dia!" The spelling may be wrong, but I know she said thanks, have a good day! And what made me so happy about that was that she actually made me feel welcome in her shop. Instead of trying to speak English and maybe resenting it or being gruff with me because she didn't want to let on that she didn't speak English, she just said an ordinary thing to me the way she would to anyone, to anyone of her neighbors and/or friends and it made my heart sing a little.

Then, as I was walking back home, I cut through the Park and the expression on the face of a woman walking her dogs toward me made me turn around. Coming across the park was a mounted policeman (or cop, as I like to really call them) on a beeyooteeful brown horse. A very big horse, whose jaw line was above my head. I actually stopped and watched while the horse and rider passed me. It was a very unusual sight. The horse was absolutely gorgeous. The cop wasn't bad either. The sight of the two of them, together, gave me a little lift.

OK so that's it for now. Hope you are enjoying your day. And ya know what? It is your day.

  1. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story. I know what you mean. Sometimes I look out of the window, look over my beautiful beloved garden, it doesn't matter that it is November now and foggy, so I can only see some yards. ... And my heart makes a little jump of happiness. I don't know why but in this very moment I am very happy and I am glad that I realized it.
