Then there was the organic farmer from Williamstown, NJ - imagine that - just around the corner almost from our CSA. They don't have a farmstand or sell locally, but will definitely be at this market with their unusual produce throughout the growing season. Yes, we have tons of tomatoes in our garden, but, well...these were different and had to come home with me!!
Then as we were walking back to the car to go and explore yet another South Philadelphia neighborhood - East Passyunk Avenue, I stopped in my tracks to have a look at these shoes. They are way too cool. Loving the sneakers - running shoes - whatever you want to call them - and the diversity of colors with the shoes and laces - that are so out there this season. It's more of a way for people to express who they are. I stopped to chat with this guy - loved the blue - the striped laces - and the stripes on the shoes. I shared all of that with him and he said, "You made my day!" Oh - another successful conversation and affirmation - woo hoo!! Friends - it's so easy to stop and visit and compliment and make someone feel good (NOT like the woman who stole our parking place at Wegman's later!!) Check out his shoes - have you gotten any for yourself yet??
There's more to share about the day, but who is going to read this blog when it gets too long?? I always talk about finding the extraordinary in the ordinary - and yesterday was no exception. I always advise you to BE STILL and SEE - to stop and chat - and catch people doing something right - life is beautiful - also tenuous - so capture the moments! Enjoy!!
