"Tragic life stories" was the sombre heading of one book selection in WH Smiths on Saturday 15th August. However, this was totally counterbalanced by:
The blind spectator joyfully improvising Jazz songs with the delighted black guitarist street player near the market square.
Iron, the handyman, resting on a bench by the river intently watching a duck being plagued by a pike.
The way people stopped on the bridge near the Green Dragon pub in Chesterton to gaze at the water and boats.
Hanging baskets bursting with flowers outside the Green Dragon.
The friendly welcome and brilliant conversation with Dino and his brother at Dino's Hair Salon in Chesterton, when I entered for a hair cut at the spur of the moment, despite it being nearly closing time on a long Satruday afternoon.
