Broke a record today.
Strangers at 12.15pm, life changing bond by 12.25pm. This treasure randomly sat next to me on a bench.
I commented on her colourful outfit.
She told me there was a time when she could see no colour.
I felt it coming. She'd lost her husband in an accident. He had fallen in Australia. It had taken her seven years to process it all. My eyes welled up. I took a deep breath and let go.
Responding to her electric openness.
"Mary I get it, like really get it. I also lost my husband, in a fall, in Australia."
She grabbed me, hugged me, we laughed at how crazy the moment was.
We've agreed that this spot will be our bench.
I'll always look out for you Mary.
Happy Easter beautiful lady x
