Every girl’s dream on Valentine

If there is anyone reading this out there, Happy Valentines day to you!

The framed picture in the photo was hanging on the wall of a simple cafe in Florence a few months ago. A business card of Firenze Art Gallery was tucked under the frame but nothing of this sort seems to be on their selection at present.

I don’t think it was ever like this for me even a few decades ago or perhaps I was just too shy to notice. Perhaps it isnt  completely out of the question even now if I’m not too particular about the age of the spectators... And I do travel to Italy quite a lot.

I did hear once the driver of a convertible at a crossing in London shouting to me, “Too busy looking at your cute dress.” But the driver was a lady. Nevertheless, I’ll always remember the compliment and what I was wearing: an apple green sleeveless dress with small apple prints in white and yellow here and there sewn by my mother according to a pattern from the latest Burda magazine. This was more than 30 years ago. A few kind words from a stranger that made you happy once may have such a long-lasting effect. We should practise that more.

For those of you who have a better chance to attract this kind of visual admiration, please wear dresses more often. Nice and simple will work best, I dare say. Thumbs up to all of us!
