I see you, you see me, and I liked your style. You had a relaxed and easy manner and made quick friends of the man and his yellow lab sitting across from me at the fair. I admired your grace and the two of you chatted about animals and companionship. And all the while you gently stroked the dog’s ears between thumb and forefinger, and leaned your forehead down and with it lightly touched the top of the animal’s head. Slowly you stood –not to out stay your welcome, said your goodbyes with a wink and a smile, and then you were gone.
