We’re often wrong at predicting who or what will transform us. Encountering certain people, books, music, places or ideas… at just the right time can immediately make our lives happier, richer, more beautiful, resonant or meaningful. When it happens, we feel a kind of instant love for them that is both deep and abiding. Now and then it can be something as trifling as a children’s book, a returned telephone call, or a night at a seaside bar in Mykonos. — Jonathan Carroll
My 88-year old father-in-law took himself for his first manicure & pedicure last week. I noticed his hands looked different and can only imagine the faces of the ladies when he walked in.
