Crazy, kind-hearted gestures

Julian, who works with us at the gallery, was carting a hefty wooden crate out the entryway when his Dad drove by and tossed a shopping bag at him. 

Inside were some cool Sanuk shoes Mr. C had spontaneously picked up for his son. A few minutes later when Julian scooted off to thank his dad, who was having breakfast a couple of doors down, I jokingly shouted: “Tell him I’m size 10 and a half!”

Julian did, extending the joke . . . and damn if Mr. C didn’t slide on over to the mall again later in the day, surprising me with the shoes you see above.

Some people choose to delight random people whenever they can. Mr. C is one of them. Crazy, kind-hearted gestures go far beyond the moment. They pay dividends into the future.

Now I’m on the hunt to surprise and delight some other unsuspecting person . . .

In a world of occasional spasms of impersonal violence, the best antidote is frequent shock and awe of the generous-hearted kind. Like Mr. C displayed this week.

For you
