During our walk ascending, my eye caught these stairs on the side …
As we arrived downstairs, the intimate quiet atmosphere surrounded us. We heard people talking in the distance.
We veered off left, balancing ourselves over the big white rocks. Then we saw a little dirty stream. Above it, was a young father talking to his child. They were throwing chips in the stream. They were having a good time doing that. We wondered about the chips.
He was standing by the red door. It looked like the back side of a restaurant, because of the little tables and chairs along the railing of the stream.
“FISH LIKE CHIPS!” he called over to us.
Said to hubby, “I think he means corn chips.”
Then the guy wanted to know how we were doing. Hubby and I were looking at each other. It had been such a crazy few weeks. During building, he made one wrong move and smashed the bone of his index finger with his hammer.
After dinner he mentioned, “I’ll have it checked tomorrow.” Looking at the blood still dripping on the floor, I decided, “No, we’re going to have it “checked” now!”
Three and a half hours later, he told me, coming from the emergency room (they wouldn’t let me in as a visitor because of the covid) that it was badly broken. A finger takes 6 months to heal. That was shortly before 10 pm at night!
Looked at the left of the back of the restaurant, and saw the bridge, and quickly snapped a capture.
I could tell the guy wanted to talk. So I responded, “We are doing good now. How about you?”
“It’s Wednesday, so my restaurant has off .”
I nodded, “Nice you have it still running. How is business?” He answered with a thankful face.
“We are running. Not making any money. But it’s still open.” Then he went on about the little fish making their way through the little stream. Did not understand why these little fish were so important to him, but I nodded, smiled, and listened.
Covid has changed me in a good way. Am not so focused on my own plans anymore. Before I would have cut off this conversation long ago, not caring much about the needs of others.
After a while, I remembered, this was just a pause, so we said goodbye to him, and went back, traipsing over the big white stones.
I saw this wall, with the flowers and thought, interesting, the flowers have exactly the same color as the wall.
Just a thought. After all, this was just a pause.
