Sometimes people appear in our lives and disappear again quickly. They arrive suddenly and then whisk away again like a frivolous autumn breeze.
Sometimes people show up in the most unexpected ways, and they stick around for the long haul, becoming friends, lovers, family.
And, sometimes, when a person comes into your life, he really leaves a mark on you.
Something that serves as a constant reminder of that person.
Something that makes you smile a quiet, private smile.
Something that fills your head with bittersweet anticipation.
A mark like that leaves quite an impression.
As does the person who made it.
What kind of mark do you make on people’s lives?
