What do you see?
An empty basket?
Maybe you see the light and shadows.
Maybe you see the weave or the wooden handles.
I see how a life can be full, even when it appears empty.
I see some balance...some yin-yang.
I see conversation and a friendship in the moment.
Those of you who know me have been reading my recent posts and comments
about letting go of 'stuff'.
Today I made a trade instead.
Someone really wanted a small zippered pouch I had
and I knew I could find a use for a basket.
So, we traded.
But, I believe what we got was so much more.
For our conversation in the mid-day sun touched
on many shared ideas, values and philosophies.
We found many commonalities.
We found a friendly feelings in those moments.
Isn't it amazing when you randomly meet someone like that?
When you meet someone and connect?
When I look at this basket, I'll remember this day.
