Let's get back to the positive ... so much nicer!

"Great ideas come into the world as gently as doves. If we listen attentively we shall hear, amid the roar, a faint flutter of wings, the gentle stirring of life and hope" (Albert Camus).

We own a shop. How nice it is to have a day with lovely, smiling customers and we do have many of those. How disappointing it is to be confronted with shoppers that are rude, or worse disrespectful of our space and products. It is not OK for children to sit on products, or swing a yo yo around. It is not OK to take photographs of original works, or turn away whilst I'm answering a question.
"With our thoughts we make the world" - I am trying very hard to spread joy after a weekend of breakages and snobbery. Enough said.

Something to think about - 

Where are you? What are you doing? Who are you with?
How do you feel? What do you see? Where will you go next?
How will you create your perfect day?

And you know what, it can be something that you have never done before. Exciting isn't it!

If you'll be my VALENTINE
I promise to always look out for you.
Not just for one day, or one year
- but forever

(Julie Holland, 'A Nest Twice Built')
