When running errands this week, I noticed three kids standing at the corner of a street. They held up homemade signs with carefully drawn letters. As each car drove by, they yelled, “brownies and lemonade” for one dollar. Their spirit and teamwork were so infectious that I had to pull over and support their merry little gang. The delightful exchange with them pulled me out of my routine and colored my day differently. As I learned about Ross Gay (in this week’s video), I can’t help but wonder how many moments of “delight” we miss daily. –Guri
