I love that I have an open door to meet people through. I never knew what a gift this would be. The store is a public place where people show up in the course of their day, just because they were driving by, or because they've been curious and have an extra moment to explore. These encounters would never happen if I was painting in my home. Home is a bit isolating. We no longer feel free to drop by unannounced. I've met so many people this way. It'll be hard to, one day, close the door. Or, maybe not.
