It happened on the train. I don’t even know their names. A Santa-ish looking artist slipped a piece of paper to the bloke in the ball cap. It was his portrait completed in seconds. Mr. Ball Cap was delighted; Santa was chuffed and those of us who were passengers became an audience of the remarkable. Smiles and talk suddenly bubbled like Champagne.The artist, grinning, said he loved to draw and pulled a larger work from his satchel.

Sitting across from the performance, I dug for my camera and took this photo almost causing Mr. Ball Cap to miss his stop. Bakeries and ice cream stores have always given away samples to increase sales; but, this sweet moment with no intent other than to delight created a lovely moment of community awe. Go delight someone just ’cause.


Are you or your business reaching the fullest potential?
