I have often seen this woman having coffee with friends at Lund's grocery store in Highland Village, and just as often have admired her hat because the silver band reminds me of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Today I stopped to chat with Marion, a 78-year-old Minneapolis resident who buses over to St. Paul frequently to visit a 90-year-old shut-in friend of hers. We had a lovely talk about her hat and her 11-year-old grandson who has given her some fashion tips. She said that she had been a little depressed this morning, but our chat cheered her up considerably. Guess I'll stop to talk with perfect strangers more often!
Good things happen when you meet strangers.
