Every morning I cycle through the pedestrian street in Svendborg. Yes, I can. Cycling is allowed from 21 – 09, so I have a good case. Of course not the days when I show up after 9am. Then I pull the bike.
But a pedestrian street can do something. What many may not know is that there is actually no activity such a quiet morning before the stores open. The owner of one cafe often goes and sweeps dirt and cinnamon aside. He reminds me of the elegant men of Southern Europe who sweep the sidewalk more than once a day.
Kvickly is also busy at that time. Items must be displayed on the street so that they tempt Mr. and Mrs. tourist into the store. There are definitely built-in routines, because often it is the same person who waters the plants and flowers that stand there.
If I cycle a little further down the pedestrian street, I meet Leo. Leo is homeless and he is pretty much always smiling and kind. It rarely happens that he does not say good morning to passers-by. Or rather: it happens, of course, but then it’s because he’s talking to one of the people who comes by.
Today I sponsored a penny to Leo. Not so in physical money. Nope, Leo’s on MobilePay too, so now I have Leo’s phone number. Today he was especially happy. He had just got new teeth. – I lost the old ones, he says. – In a mega-branded. But I am surrounded by friendly people, he continues.
– They were so sweet at the clinic that they gave me new teeth for free. It is nice. Leo smiles and I acknowledge and praise his new teeth. We wish each other a good day, and on the way forward it strikes me how good a country Denmark is. We care about each other. At least far down the road. And we can contribute to the good life ourselves.
Quite simply by showing kindness. And spread kindness. Try to smile to the next person you make eye contact with. Also one you do not know. Smile at the kids playing with water in the square. And their mothers, who may be busy with their smartphone instead of enjoying the children’s play.
Leo has got new teeth. A new start, one might say. The weekend starts in a little while and I want to enjoy the good weather with people I love. Friday’s links send you to free games and software, CRM, lyrics and smoke measurement systems.
