This photo was taken at the Musee Marmottan in Paris
and seemed appropriate as a small tribute to the city
and its many angels.
What a week, there and all over the planet.
But little pieces of good news keep popping up in unexpected places.
A friend in Amsterdam came out to her bicycle
to find a hand-knitted scarf wrapped in plastic in her basket with a note:
"For whoever finds this, open me, I'm a present!
I'm not lost, but something someone took pleasure making and placing here for you.
Just doing something nice for someone else."
And right here at a local grocery,
a friend's husband posted that the gentleman behind him
paid for his family's groceries.
Everywhere angels remind us
that good will persevere
even in the face of so much treacherous hate.
And in my own backyard,
a little good news on the writing front.
My very first piece of short fiction to be published
won second prize in Gemini Magazine
which you can find here.
Let's keep spreading more good news...
and random acts of sparkling sweetness.
