Good old days – 1

goodolddays1

The coffee and the cakes… muaaah!

Every place is a goldmine. You have only to give yourself time, sit in a teahouse watching the passers-by, stand in a corner of the market, go for a haircut. You pick up a thread – a word, a meeting, a friend of a friend of someone you have just met – and soon the most insipid, most insignificant place becomes a mirror of the world, a window on life, a theatre of humanity. ~ Tiziano Terzani (A Fortune-Teller Told Me: Earthbound Travels in the Far East)

Guess the place 🙂

  1. Wow – what a beautiful spot. I look forward to a time when I can, once again, sit in a cafe and go people-watching. I do watch a little bit now from my window several hundred feet above the city but it’s not quite the same :-).

    Take care and stay safe.

      1. Exactly.

        You’ve reminded me of a practice that Sage suggested to me when I was feeling really down in January/February. She suggested people watching on the bus or when I’m out and then imagine happy things for them. That woman there is going to see her new granddaughter and is really excited. That man over there just found out he passed his bar exams and will be able to practice law. That person just found out that his family that he sponsored to immigrate to Canada were approved and they would be coming soon.

        It’s amazing how cheering that was.
