Ramenman West End

You were looking for a table at Ramenman, and smiled. I sat outside, sorry I did not invite you to join me. You were with a friend. I liked how seriously you discussed your ramen with the staff, and your smile. Let's have ramen together?

You, me and Wreck

Wreck Beach. Me: nude, curvy, tattooed caucasian woman with bleached hair. You: nude, caucasian man with brown hair and an amazing smile. I was comfortably set up, solo, on the sand in front of you with me multicolour umbrella. We exchanged some smiles and words, you asked me how the water was! As you left you walked by me telling me you were on the hunt for shadier space before you got burnt... i'm usually super gutsy and would have made a comment about perhaps seeing you again? But I left it up to chance... wreck beach season isn't over! Contact me if you want to find some shade together :)

Hair like a Lion - 17 Oak

You - stunning blue eyes and a gorgeous mane of curly brown hair. Me - shaved head and blue eyes. We exchanged glances and then an old lady got on the bus and commented how beautiful your hair was (I agree). You said it was like a lion; that made me smile and was going to say hi but had to get off at my stop. Would love to grab a drink or coffee sometime and get to know you!

You literally had flowers in your hair

I was reading a Kurt Vonnegut poem out loud; you patiently waited, then started talking about old shoes. Me: blue jacket, white shirt, big silly grin. You: white dress, seafoam shoes, and a summer wreath on your head. We danced to a (very impressive) Beatle's cover band. We laughed when they said they were playing "Something" (as in, anything, instead of the actual song). Just an insane evening. Lost track of a lot of things, but don't want to lose track of you. Send me an email?

A Girl and Her Horse

You'd been riding your pinto and stopped for some excited children by the gate to a friend's place, where we were having a get together. I'm very glad you did. I really enjoyed your lively, outgoing personality; and, I'd love to pick-up our conversation where we left off and get to know more about you, and horses too.

Othello. August 14

Not so much as a encounter.. From not so far away I saw you walk through the gates with another lady. You striking with a beautiful Rose tattoo a certain vibe and the way you carried yourself caught my eye. I thought, oh look, Kate Hudson. And later in the theater you were in a section opposite me. Did my best not to stare.. I'm certain you never noticed me. I pictured you and I on a date...dinner, Bard drinks and strolls on the beach... The Beautiful smile throughout the show you seemed to have enjoyed. Have not stopped daydreaming of you. Show ended with Bianca singing.. wish I could quote directly.. My heart was wounded the first I saw you... Hope you enjoyed the show. Maybe I will see you again.
