"I love your clothes! They're art! Look at all these colors... Watching you makes me happy. Thank you!"
How did she react?
"Thanks! That's so sweet! Let me give you a hug!"
How did I feel?
Great. Molly was beautiful. She received what I said and put on a smile that beamed with joy. While I was busy taking a closer look at all the details of her outfit (red eyebrows, several piercings that created a pattern, one of these tight nineties necklaces, tattoos...) she told me she liked the project, invited me to visit her at the café she works at and we hugged again. I will definitely go there because she had the friendliest and most open vibe and I'd love to see her again.
The encounter triggered the good old "Suddenly I see beautiful things everywhere" I have been experiencing many times after complimenting for this project: While finishing my round at the grocery store I fell in love with one guy's shoes and another man's friendliness and the taste of vanilla-strawberry granola. Thank you for opening me up to all that with your sweet smile and self, Molly!
