brocade, call, and props
posted by soe 11:59 pm

It’s the first Thursday of March. Today was an oasis of sun and warmth between days of rain, but yesterday brought a bonus day and tomorrow brings the promise of the weekend and of a concert, so I think it all evens out. And the rain can be beautiful, too, you know.

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. We got on the same metro car first thing Monday morning. Her knee-length brocade jacket is two shades of sky blue with a burnt orange design emblazoned upon it. Her scarf matches the deeper blue, as does the bird on her tote bag. I feel happier just looking at her.

2. We seem to have reached a time when people no longer telephone each other for fear they are interrupting real life. But without those calls, people really are far away. I force myself to dial, and after explaining there is no emergency or bad news precipitating the occasion, we spend half an hour catching up.

3. Starburst are required for a photo shoot. After we are done, we eat the props.

How about you? What beautiful things have you noticed this week?

I especially love the first one. Did you used to read Karen in NYC’s blog? She would do occasional postings called ‘seen on the subway.’ She’d list three people and say how they were dressed and what they were reading. Sound like anything you’d like to do? :<) Living in the country and never riding anywhere with anyone except in a car or truck, it is an enterprise filled with wonder to me.

@Nan: I don’t know that I read that one, but I’ve heard of similar ones, certainly. I’ll definitely give this suggestion some more thought.
