There are certain days that make me relatively sure that I am one of the luckiest girls in the world. Some times there are even days where I receive confirmation of my fortunate existence via snail mail. With happy thanks to the postman who braved the windy and uglying winter weather of Montreal's city streets, I must make two announcements.
1. Some of you will remember my earlier posts about being delighted about shopping in Bangkok, taken as we were around the mazy markets by two eager locals who liked to barter on my behalf. Today I received a package from 5 X 5 clothing just because they noticed my enthusiasm for shiny home made fashion. Check them out here http://5x5clothing.blogspot.com and fall in love. As I have.
2. Others will remember my more recent post about our show in Zagreb. At this most beloved and wildly energetic concert, two smitten fans stole my shoes as souvenirs, intending each to keep one on their respective mantel places in their homes and "maybe one day brag to our kids that we have shoes that once belonged to Alexei from Handsome Furs." However, these two lovely women read my eulogy for these particular shoes and had Stealer's Remorse. In a story that proves just how small the world can become when you have Macedonian friends that live in Croatia and, in a round about way, made a connection to these two ladies, the shoes have ended up once again back on my doorstep. In the package was a letter I will forever treasure and a little souvenir from the city where my heart lives. Truthfully, part of me wishes I could send them back to the girls because I am so touched by their kindness. That said I promise to give them future opportunities for thievery whenever we next return to Zagreb – because most likely I will kick off these same heels in sweaty delight.
Thank you, world. I am honoured to be loved by you.
