Uh oh!

Dear Optimists,

Hello Optimists*

At the hockey game the other day, I was working in a different building, the baseball stadium for the Philadelphia Phillies, Citizens Bank Park. Since I’d only worked there one other time, please keep in mind that I don’t know my way around that well.

As I just missed the elevator, I noticed a set of stairs next to it and figured I could catch up with my coworkers by taking the stairs down one flight. I enter the stairwell and as the door shuts behind me I hear a buzz and a click. Doors don’t usually make noises like this, so I turned and tried the door. It was locked! I panicked a little, ran down a flight to try the next door…locked! One more flight and still locked! I thought I was going to end up sitting in this stairwell and everyone would wonder what happened to me! I would be missing the whole game, trapped in a stairwell! And let’s face it, I would be teased for months.

One more flight down and the door opened. Phew! I actually made it to the elevator as it opened and my coworkers walked out.

Love,

Den

*Please excuse three “Den” posts in a row. Nadia is defending her thesis today so I agreed to post for a few days so she could focus on such a huge, important project. And also excuse my crude DO hand drawing/watercolor…I wanted to give her as much time as I could.

More often than not, people wonder what I'm up to. I'm a people watcher, and love to tell a stranger's story, as I see it. If you see me reading or writing in a coffee shop, there's a good chance I'm making up a story about you at that moment. I'm a visual person who loves finding inspiration in my surroundings, and believe that sometimes the smallest detail can tell the majority of the story, if you have the sense to recognize it.
