Best Things in Life

20150629_133208-1I was at a certain gift shop the other day when I saw one of the most beautiful things in life…I had to take a snapshot of it….it says ‘the best things in life are….’ as shown in the picture on the left. I thought the message was profoundly deep and meaningful, and worth sharing.

An empty bench facing the Charles River and the bridge that I often ran across in Boston. I imagine there was a loving couple sitting on the bench, watching the seagulls fly high into the sky on a warm, sunny day...now it's empty on a cold Winter's day.

I am anti vandalism, but for that Shirley-and-Matt-were-here kind of vandalism that we often see in major landmarks, I (sort of) can understand why certain people do it…I imagine years later, when one re-visits the place, and the other has long gone, the feelings that the one (who returns) has when he/she sees the inscription will be bittersweet…
There are certain places that I’d definitely like to see again…not because they have given me some of the greatest moments in my life…but mostly because they are the only way (that I know of) that 67218_457821611505_332296_ncan reconnect me with the people I loved with whom I saw those places, even if the re-connection is only in memories…
