I just ran into a youngish woman on 60th Place in Maspeth, Queens, where I live.
I was taking an afternoon walk and at that moment was taking a photo with my camera of a beautiful tree in front of a house on the side of the street.
The woman said to me (I quote verbatim):
I like that you’re looking for the beauty in the world. … You’re looking for the beautiful moments, simple moments.
Then she high fived me.
Such a nice and perceptive comment.
