Ron returns

I have a difficult time approaching strangers. I have only a slightly less difficult time asking someone I just met for a favor. When I met Ron the other day I really wanted to do a video interview with him, but I chickened out and an opportunity was lost.

But yesterday I returned to the beach parking lot where we'd talked. Maybe he'd be there again. I was disappointed that he wasn't, but I went about doing other things. Then, about a half hour later, Ron pulled into the parking space next to me. This time I got up the nerve to ask, and he was flattered, not put off.


  1. I really enjoyed this interview. What a kind soul Ron was!


  2. Somehow made me think of one of Wayne Wirs' last posts about the preponderance of unhappy (and hurrying!) folks these days... Such a contrast here, thank you Ron and thank you Al.
