Museum Musings: a quiet Tuesday

at my cash register

  • a few tourists still trying to get back to Europe.
  • several Australians whose flights to Europe were cancelled, and are vacationing in the States instead.
  • le monsieur from Paris, France who complemented me on my French, and my nice accent. Moi?
  • a gentleman from Calcutta, who told me I give good customer service. Thank you.
  • a Thai woman who tried to explain why the last 3 letters in her surname – “Punyaratbundhu” – were mute. If the word ends in “dhu“, it’s like the silent ‘e’ in English.  I think.
  • Natasha’s Iranian Father taught her, “There is no such thing as perfect happiness. You have to be ‘happy’ without it“; and asked her every day, “Did you touch any souls today?”   She touched mine.

  1. Very sweet post — I can just sort of see you there behind the desk, having all these deep yet fleeting conversations with folks … lovely!

    I agree. You are a jewel and bless everyone that comes to you with your grace and kindness. Such simple and beautiful observations.

I'd be delighted if you left me a comment
