Friendly strangerOctober 03, 2012
After a consult with one of my therapists extremely early in the morning, Ben and I decided to have a stroll in the forest to get some fresh air. Suddenly a car passed us and the woman in it was waving and smiling at us. So we smiled back. When she pulled the car over she called us and told us that she adored our 1930s look ( actually it was forties, but she was one of the few that came close to the era Ben and I love. A couple of minutes before this a group of women complimented us that we looked so cool in our 1960s ensemble.
Anyway, the lovely stranger complimented us and in her hand she had a book. She said: What a coincidence! If you want you can have it. When I looked at the book I saw it was a biography of Marlene Dietrich. I gasped! This was so friendly from her! I devour (auto)biographies of famous thirties and forties stars. The book is written in German, but my German is very up to date so I don't see me having any troubles reading the book.
It's so nice to know that these lovely people still excist! My first gift from a stranger and a divine one, too!
