My special boyfriend, Michael, often says
It’s not the place, it’s the people.
Even though this was the only person I took a picture of yesterday …
… it was still people who made each place special, including
- the waitress who gave me free fruit and home fries when I told her it was my first time at the North End Diner and that I didn’t eat meat and
- all the people who were friendly, along my walk at Doyle Community Park.
I chose to visit Leominster yesterday because of special memories I have of a special person who grew up there — Alexa, whom I first met in Boston Children’s Hospital when we were kids.
Here’s an old photo of me and Alexa:
When I found out that Alexa had passed away, I wished I had spent more special time with her in other special places.
Here are other special places I saw yesterday, in Leominster Massachusetts:
When I drove back, yesterday, through Littleton, Massachusetts, home of my special friend Rachel, I took this final photo of the day.
What was special about that place, that I would take a photo of it?
I’m not sure, but soon after taking that special photo, I called Rachel, whom I haven’t seen in several years. We agreed to meet in some special place, soon.
What makes a place special, for you? If you express that in a comment, that will definitely make this post more special to me.
Special thanks to all those who helped me create this post and to you — of course! — for visiting, here and now.
