Today was wet and grey. I could smell the season changing, it was cold but the longer light in the evening has started to lift the winter slumber. The wind was fresh and the clouds rolled across the sky, letting loose some momentary showers of heavy rain.

I caught a stolen glance from a lady walking down a busy street. The type of glance that says so much without saying, I sensed her approach, a gracious movement in the distance. I couldnt tell you now if she was blonde, brunette, big or small !. Her magneticism had me mystified, a gorgeous sense of timelessness.

The crowded street seemed to stand still and almost part, as she glided by. Slowly and sligthly turning her head towards me. Locking me with a deep stare. For that split second it seemed as if we looked beyond our eyes.

She passed by,as did I, but in her trail a sweet yet a sad sensation arose. Melancholy perhaps, but it stirred me, my first spring step of the year because of a strangers glance. I wasnt sure who to thank, just knew I should. So a busker got the loose change from my pocket, and I said thanks.

Today emphasised why, for me, it is the small things that count. That stolen glance re-affirmed deliciously what I feel to be true, it is all in the eyes.

Simplicity, nothing complicated in my little piece of joy.

The small things often do make the biggest impact. I try to remember that. Thank you for sharing that moment.
