While strolling along the farmers market on Salt Spring Island, BC I saw a little girl selling some things she made out of clay. A lot of people were smiling and asking what she made but nobody actually bought something. I agree, there was no value or personal reason to buy one of the clay hamburgers or dolls. But I felt so touched that this little girl spent all her time making these things and devoted her time on a Saturday to make some money of her own instead of asking her parents. She was probably saving up for something she really wanted so I asked her how much she wanted for a small rose she made. It was half a dollar, but what can she do with half a dollar? I gave her 2 dollars and she was the happiest kid on Salt Spring Island that day. I remember I was trying to sell something at that age and nobody bought anything during the whole day. Next time you see something like that, just buy something you will make somebody very happy.
Waited for an ambulance with an old, drunken lady who had fallen down and had blood all over her face, comforted her and chatted with her. She was upset and embarrassed. I told her there's nothing to be embarrassed of. I had to stall her because she kept on fleeing, but she couldn't stand up.
