What to do when no one’s watching
When I lived in Hawaii, I loved coming upon different tropical flower and craft stands in the rain forests — all which stood unattended, save for a simple metal box that accepted payment via the honor system. A few weeks ago, I wandered by a vintage sidewalk sale, whose cashier was a hat box that stated, “Leave a nice money.” These instances make me very happy — knowing that there are others too who believe that there is underlying good in human nature.
From yoel herzberg‘s Flickr photostream, this bookstore in Neve Tzedek in Tel Aviv operates on the same delightful honor system. A tin can and a door slot are the cashier, while the lady who owns the home and shop stops in to only leave poems and quotes on her door. In this sense, this is a beautiful “store without a key.”
May this weekend be filled with unexpected surprises about the human spirit!
P.S. I apologize for the quick postings this week, as I’ve been working on a shoot, but I shall have fun goodies to share next week!
