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