They were an unlikely duo. She was moving all alone in her own special world. Until he came along.
The crowd was captivated. She was a little girl in her red Christmas dress, dancing to the music of the buskers in Bourke Street Mall. And then he joined her - a total stranger from the crowd. He was an elderly man with a happy face and a big toothy grin. He led the little girl through twists and twirls and ballroom dance moves. The little girl was entranced by the man. The crowd could not take their eyes off them.
Melbourne continues to provide moments of inspiration, especially on sun-filled days of perfection that remind me how simple things can be so special to see.
We don’t remember days, we remember moments. I will remember that one.
