Harry’s trip to the shops proved a fas­ci­nat­ing, beau­ti­ful ex­pe­ri­ence

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Relax - Fran­cis Gay

Har­ry­told me about his walk through the shop­ping cen­tre.

“Go­ing in, I met a man I prob­a­bly would never have been friends with – if we hadn’t learned about each other’s hearts through ad­ver­sity a long time ago.

“Half-way through I met a man who tells me the same seven things each time we meet. It al­ways seems like he’s telling me them for the first time. So, I lis­ten like it was the first time.

“Leav­ing at the other end, I saw a woman who looked re­ally scared. I met her dart­ing eyes, and smiled. She whis­pered hello. Then she smiled the sweet­est smile.

“Peo­ple! Aren’t they just end­lessly fas­ci­nat­ing?” They are, Harry. And my favourite kind are the ones who look be­hind the dam­age we all have, to one de­gree or an­other, and find the beauty that is al­most al­ways there.
