On my way to work, I saw a middle aged builder walking towards me. A big, burly fella with tattoos. Not the kind of bloke you’d want to pick a fight with. No softy!
Anyway, he stopped dead in his tracks. Looked up at this cartoon image of Phil Lynott (above) on the wall and with childlike awe, placed his hand on the image. That moment, a massive smile burst across his face.
We could all learn from his ability to appreciate the little things in life and let the inner child peep out every now and then. A nice moment.
