today is spring

One day, there was a blind man sitting on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet and a sign that read: “I am blind, please help.”

A creative publicist was walking by and stopped to observe. He saw that the blind man had only a few coins in his hat. He dropped in more coins and, without asking for permission, took the sign and rewrote it.

He returned the sign to the blind man and left. That afternoon the publicist returned to the blind man and noticed that his hat was full of bills and coins.

The blind man recognized his footsteps and asked if it was he who had rewritten his sign and wanted to know what he had written on it.

The publicist responded: “Nothing that was not true. I just wrote the message a little differently.” He smiled and went on his way.

The new sign reads: “Today is Spring and I can not see it.”

On that spirit, I wore this outfit on Sunday for a brunch date with my boyfriend. He liked it but I felt so matronly.

  1. Beautiful ensemble!! I love that Spring dress!! And Ferragamo pumps for under $4? Score!! I must admit that I would love to wear that outfit, but my husband might find it a bit matronly. 🙂 I am still 45, but he likes me to dress a bit mutton as lamb.
