I was showing someone my book, Moments of Delight, yesterday and when we flipped to this page, she reacted. "Ahhp"
Now I have been designing and selling accessories long enough to "know" that squeak. The audible gasp means that I've struck a cord with someone. It happens when people open my cigar box purses and see the fabric lining; it happens when someone starts to admire my necklace and realizes that the spacers are buttons; and it happens when they look through my books. The fun part is that I never know which page will get which person.
Yesterday, it was the ice cream. The idea that normally we reach in this case, choose a flavor and move on. To stop and recognize that, as a collection, the ice cream department was gorgeous, blew her mind.
She "saw" the every day beauty of it for the first time. This is delight.
