come on in.

If there is one thing I could tell you I love with all my heart, it’s tiny little specialty shops that are tucked into neighborhoods like little jewels hidden away as we idly pass by in our daily routines. I love the thought of someone so passionate about wine or cheese or bow ties that that is all they want to sell to the public. These shops have an air of specialist about them, but not in an arrogant way. Their warmth and openness beckons you to come in – even if you share no interest whatsoever in their ties. The architecture even calls to me with it’s creaky wooden floors, freshly planted window boxes, and Standard Issue OPEN sign says “come in…learn…ask me…I want to share this passion with you.”

I wish we were all this confidently passionate about our craft. Wouldn’t it be great if instead of being frustrated over a commonplace question (ie:  What kind of wine goes best with cheeseburgers? What kind of camera do you use?), we embraced the process of teaching what is new and fresh and great about what we do?

Maybe when we can do that, we will all bravely hang out that OPEN FOR BUSINESS sign in the window of our well worn door and kindly say “Come on in…questions are appreciated…they make is feel smart!”
