A glimpse of beauty

FullSizeRender (2)

In the midst of this dark world with so much pain and so much that is wrong, it is good to watch a young woman take an old man by the arm and help him make his way down the sidewalk. Halfway across a small square in front of a small church, they pause and he points with his cane toward an empty bench. She leads him to it and they sit down. They talk for a few minutes while the pigeons peck at the ground. Then they are on their way again. They walk slowly. She is ever at his side, matching his pace, holding his arm, watching his every step. And soon they are gone.

  1. It’s lovely to see this image in a world full of hurt. Sparing moments, capturing the beauty of simplicity in caring, loving, companionship, it’s easier to see a path to healing. Thank you for the beautiful, quiet moment of grace and space.
