Observations at The Grove
Spent a couple hours at The Grove, one of my favorite people watching spots in LA. Sipping a raspberry lemon drop and watching the crowd, I mentally composed a witty (read: snarky) post about the inverse relationship between height and hairline of an older single man and the age of his date. At some point, the snark became obvious, and I thought, "What would MON do?"
Clearly, my dear Michelle would focus on the positive. So...
Few things are sweeter than adult men or women holding an elderly parent's hand. Treating your elders kindly and with deference says something true and good about your character and about the lessons they taught you.
American Girl Doll parties give little girls reasons to dress and act like ladies.
Something is right with the world when you have to wait in line for 20 minutes to buy a book.
Seeing a movie becomes an event in a theatre with crystal chandeliers and uniformed ushers.
Dancing fountains bring out the little kid in everyone.
Your day brightens when you look for the positive and the happy. (Thanks, Michelle.)
