It's so dark and so early. It's raining really, really, wet rain, and it really means it.
Today is Blue Monday. According to the radio it is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year. Now I must admit I wasn't feeling uber depressed, just a bit Monday morningish.
I have just got off my train, off the platform onto the concourse. I guess I am feeling.. less than utterly slim, if I thought about it, but I just can't be asked to beat myself up over it too much just now. Whatever...
So of course I pop into a convenience store at the station to get something utterly unsuitable for breakfast ^_^.
While I stand at the counter making my guilt inducing purchase I notice faint singing. Not a radio, more... ethereal.
I turn to walk out of the store trying to figure where it was coming from. As I walk out I notice a young Hindu woman stacking the shelves.
It was her, quietly singing something to herself. It sounded cheerful and as I pass we catch each other's eye for a moment and smile at one another.
I walk on with a hint of a bounce in my step, smiling slightly and feeling somehow good, my mood elevated.
