Ray of Sunshine

It's not often that it happens, but there are some strangers you meet in life that just make you happy to see them. It's like that line from a song, "Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer." The sight of them just lifts you up and you can't help but smile. I was quite possibly the grumpiest man heading to work on the bus the other day, but not after I saw her.

It's been a longtime since I saw that kind of sunshine. Too many clouds floating about.

I can relate to your grumpiness, I think there's a lot of that going around these days.
What often snaps me out of my horrible mood is a kid playing. I saw a little girl dressed up as a princess the other day, tiara and all, just jumping around and enjoying life.
Absolutely made me smile big time.

Mine is a (I strongly suspect from personal experience) Persian woman on the B Line. She wears her dark hair bundled beneath tasteful scarves, wears fiercely red lipstick and seems to have an endless supply of exquisitely coloured pea coats. She always travels alone and seems to prefer the single seats beside the window. I've never seen her staring at (or even using) a phone, which impresses me beyond anything I can say.
She's the epitome of workaday glamour. Quietly chic.
I have no intention of ever interacting with her, or trying to know anything more, because the mystery of her is the flavor in my imagination.
And (sigh) no ladies, the male gaze is not *invariably* sexual when it takes you in, but rest assured, it does muse.
