Beautiful People

Today at the Oslo Pride Parade, I had a really nice chat with a woman who had approached me to ask me about my shoes. I was wearing my Fibram FiveFingers, you see, and in this town they are still kind of hard to get. After I had talked to her, I thought to myself: What a nice person! She, and her girlfriend (?),  seemed to be the kind of people I’d like to hang out with, I thought. There was such a beauty in they way she acted, the way she seemed to approach life.

A few hours later, on the way back home, I went to my all-time-favorite organic store (a.k.a. my second home) to buy some groceries. And who do I meet there? That women from the parade! I had never seen her in the store before, not consciously, anyway. Turns out she lives right next to the store, and she’s a vegan.

It is beautiful people like her that make beautiful days.
