Gratitude List 1105: Public Solitude, Frou-Frou Coffee, Friends, Oranges, and a Kind Woman
The solitude of people-watching alone in a quiet cafe.
The amazing privilege it is to be able to drink a frou-frou coffee at all.
Friends who check in on you after acquitting yourself in a somewhat messy fashion.
A bag of oranges sweetening the air.
The woman who always smiles and greets me when I’m out walking even though she knows I never carry the cash she used to ask me for. (This is a reminder to me to carry some cash for the next time I run into her.)
