Two Magic Sitings

 As you can probably figure out quite obviously, I am a bit of an addict for the small things in life. I walk around and just really take it all in most days. This is a blessing and sometimes it is a curse. I say this because it is also a very good practice to just "be", and not try to take too much in every day. To each there own right?

  Today as I took a short walk in the neighborhood to take care of a couple of things, I noticed something so simple that gave me a nice chunk of joy in record time. This is pretty common in my area because there are children everywhere. I always think of children as the true teachers in our world because they continually remind us that life does not have to be so serious all of the time. So when a child wants to do something, they generally just do it and deal with the repercussions after.

   So I was walking down an amazingly beautiful street that is seconds from my house and there it was!!! A sidewalk chalk picture that was made by a handful of children for sure. I stopped and took a picture of it because I knew that writing this without a photo may have made this posting a little bit harder to connect to. There was actually about 8 feet of picture. I just took a sample of one little area. Here it is below.

     Then as I was picking up one of my favorite raw dessert treats, I saw something that I really loved, so I had to take a snapshot of it as well. Now if I did not see this with my own eyes, I don't know that it would have captivated me the exact same way. However, I just so happened to be looking in the direction of this creative barista at the moment that it was being created. I was fortunate to say the very least.

     I think we can all agree that there is a way to do things and a way to take things to another level. This would be the latter. I did not even order this coffee, but I did ask to take a picture of it and I did compliment the guy who did it. I mean what would it be like if people went that extra mile just 10% more in this life? It would mean more smiles, more laughter, more openness, more sharing, and most of all, more magic. I will end this post with the picture. Keep reaching.....     Chase
