And Sometimes

Sometimes when you least expect it, you’ll find a gem. Sometimes that gem-to-be is covered in soot or dirt or dust.

Sometimes it’s so simple.

However, when you notice this gem, it will morph into something greater and sweeter than you expected.

  1. Reblogged this on An Upturned Soul and commented:
    A beautiful gem of a post (if you follow the link on the reblogged post) by a very talented writer and great observer of life, of hidden gems, others and himself.

    Chris is one of those gems of which he speaks – sometimes I think of him as having stepped out of a P. G. Wodehouse novel (and I don’t just mean his Jeeves and Wooster series) – that’s a compliment as far as I’m concerned, as he is one of my favourite authors and his characters have a richly timeless quality.

    You’re so money, Chris!, and you don’t even know it! (referencing another one of his wonderful posts) –


    Thank you for sharing!

  2. There is nothing, Nothing, more romantic than a letter. I love reading old love letters. Even though they aren’t to me, they still make me get a bit swoon-y.

  3. Beautiful all the way around, Christopher, this Espresso shot of yours. Your appreciation of the world around you is finely tuned. Do you think that woman with her feet in the fountain has a postcard like this tucked away somewhere. Oh, I shouldn’t sully your grandparents moment …

  4. I just read the story. Beautiful. That has to still exist in this world, it just gets lost with all the technology and instant communications.
