Last week at this time, I was delighted to find the above postcard in the day's mail: The stranger I'd briefly talked with on a walk in February to whom I'd sent a surprise Valentine had written back. The postcard's front was one of Monet's dreamy water lily paintings. The note on the back mentions that, "[His] water lilies also resemble hearts." Yes. The postcard had made my day anyway, but that observation continues to tickle me. How sweet this world can be.
