If you'd like to continue following my journey please join me at Post-It Notes to Myself.

I wish you well and thank all of you who have returned time and time again to my blog.

Simple Life

In the Albanian Countryside, April 2010

When we endeavour to view something through the lens of beauty,
 it is often surprising how much more we can see.

The Gentleman, Albania

"In the morning of his days, he is in the afternoon of his life."
~Mary Oliver~
We often stop and pick up hitchhikers in the country, enjoying brief but lovely little episodes of friendship with real people. Our bits of Albanian get us through, but oh how we long to be able to communicate completely. This handsome gentleman waved us down between two tiny villages and asked for a lift to "the center". We tried to figure out the center of what, which turned out to be the center of the next little village,  actually hardly even a village- just a small group of buildings with a dimly lit bar. He told us that he really could have walked the short distance, but well- his knees now gave him trouble- they ached. He hopped out of the car and happily let us take his wonderful photo.
