Sunshine in Leith and Small Joys Worth Counting

I was out in the afternoon catching some of the unusual September sunshine. As I walked towards the park, a family was coming towards me. I hesitated in my step preparing to keep a covid-healthy distance. The parents continued towards me but their

son stopped and opened his arm wide. His five-year old hand was like a starfish.

He nodded and said to me “Ladies first!”

As I thanked him, smiling, his parents laughed. He turned quickly and said: “What’s the matter with you? You know that’s right!”

They agreed, we all smiled and somehow the afternoon sunshine got a tiny bit warmer.
