with stories to tell

i ran into THIS old acquaintance today, in a small street in the jordaan, and thought - looking back on the distress of recent events - how true these three words are.
i met up with a new friend today, and we walked - literally - miles, and shared tea, lunch, conversation. we talked and we listened. we had our bread pinched. we nearly got run down six times.
a first encounter filled with ease and recognition is always a gift.
and, although amsterdam could have been a bit sunnier, the day could not possibly have been any brighter.


  1. i'm glad that you had a good time with her. :-)

  2. happy for you lynn
    every encounter with another good human being is a countreweight for 'strange days indeed'

  3. Great photo, Lynn. And you can be happy to have met a new friend.
    And I hope you are doing fine, Lynn, and thanks for visiting and commenting. I have been so busy with some projects in my job so that I didn't find the time for my private photography site and for visiting and commenting yours, sorry.
    Have a nice day ~ Angela

  4. I still remember the time I met you like it was yesterday. I'm sure you had a great time and sun is something you have IN you.
