    Turns out I had one of these chance encounters just the other day....... turns out this elderly gentleman has written 15 books in 7 years and is about to be published.... we had a very interesting conversation and I came away feeling richer for having had the experience.

    You have recalled a visual embrace and this does seem so very romantic. Ah! these chance encounters have made many a glorious movie of possibilities. Market places are so colorful where all the senses can be involved and I myself have just returned from one. This is a poem where one can fill in the spaces as one feels inclined.... love Karin (Report) Reply
