On my way back home, after taking my son to school, I was thinking about the little familiar things in life. I'm talking about people or places that become part of our daily routine. It could be the old man who walks his dog every morning or the mother with the twin stroller. The moment you notice them you get this sense that things are just as they should be in the world. After the move I have started collecting new people and places on my list, and this morning one person made me smile. It's a lady that I usually pass by every morning but I haven't greeted her yet because she's always talking on her mobile. I have of course no idea what she's discussing but judging by the tone of her voice it must be something exciting. I haven't paid particular attention to her outfit, maybe because it's not my style and, therefore, I don't dwell on it. This morning, however, I noticed it immediately because it was something I would never ever wear: a checked cape that had a hint of pink in it, baby pink glitter beanie and pink UGG boots, the kind I wouldn't be caught dead in. But on her, even though I don't know her, this was perfect.
Did a stranger make you smile this morning?
