“If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.”
Oh my dog, I know that Love Actually quote up there = so cheesy. But what can I say?! I’m a cheeseball nowadays.
Today, I didn’t listen to a podcast on my drive from CT –> NYC. No book came on the subway, and no tunes or words played in my ears. Instead, I saw trees of green flanking the highways. I called my big sister and learned something new about her life. I chatted with the smiling men who sold me potato chips between my subway lines. I watched kids licking the last drops of 16 Handles ice cream tubs the size of their faces. Observed strangers laughing like friends in random discussion. Saw couples lean casually against each other. Dropped all the single dollars in my worn wallet on hippies playing old music, and desperate faces I wanted to kiss. I swooned over smushy-faced dogs, and snooped the spines of the hardcovers around me.
And I think to myself: what a wonderful world.
