you never forget.

Standard

how fun it was

to see two very different adults

each alone

riding their shopping carts

through the parking lot

one as I made my way into the store

one as I made my way out

both were full of glee.

 

 

“it’s like learning to ride a unicorn.

you never forget.”

opera.

Standard

when dropping off donations

at the local salvation army

i was met by

friendly, happy workers

  who have struggled

 had challenges in their lives

listening to opera music

it clearly brought a lot of joy to them

 there was no way to avoid

getting taken in by the music.

“everybody is always in the middle of their own opera.”

lottery.

Standard

i stopped to fill up with gas

and grab a cup of coffee

when heading out of town

and home once more.

as i paid and told

the very happy and chatty clerk

to have a good day

he glanced across the street

at the beautiful view he sees each day

and thanked me for reminding him

because every day was good

and especially today

because today was the day

that he was going to win the lottery

but somehow i thought that he already had.

“i count myself lucky,

having long ago won a lottery paid to me 

in seven sunrises a week for life.”
