monday morning pep talk

I was strolling in my neighborhood, and a middle-aged man saw me walking towards his direction. He said to me:

Photobucket

I wanted to know what brand of coffee this stranger was having that induced such cheerfulness on a Monday morning. I have to admit, I did feel a bit more cheerful afterwards.

Beautiful! I'm waiting for more Alaska pictures from your talented hand and eyes!
It's amazing to be reminded how one stranger reaching out to another stranger with a simple comment can have such a profound impact!

Aww, that's so sweet! Sometimes I think incidents like that are a sign, that the universe is telling us life's pretty good sometimes. :)

This image looks like it should be part of a post card or Hallmark card Karleen. I love the softness of your processing and the dreaminess of it all. What a lovely image to wake up to.
