Waiting

Reflections

On a wide, pedestrian-only cobblestone street in Tallinn, Estonia sits a quaint little coffee shop.  Across the street are several flower shops with no store fronts, just three walls and a canvas roof that extends over the sidewalk.  Flowers are everywhere: on tables, shelves and afoot.  Shopkeepers are rushing to and fro trying desperately to satisfy customer demands on the first day of school.

The old woman in the coffee shop is reflective, perhaps thinking of days gone by when she was a young girl taking flowers to her teacher on the first day of school.  The two coffee cups and empty chair suggest she is waiting for someone, or maybe the other person has left her alone.  There is plenty of activity on the street to attract the woman’s attention, but she appears to be lost in her own thoughts.

Meanwhile, the two pigs chatter about the latest trend is social media.

Thought for the Day:  Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.                                                                                                     Albert Schweitzer
