Daily Post: What is A Successful Life?

Ray At Rubios

Ray At Rubios

This is Ray. Every Tuesday he shows up at Rubios Tacos and the staff greet him like a king. They guide him to a seat, he’s nearly blind  you see, and bring him his special order and when he is done a waitress walks him across the street to Starbucks for his coffee. When I asked about him, all they knew was; one of the girls had seen him walking all the way across town from Berkeley, a good 3 or 4 miles,  he wouldn’t take a ride when asked, because he likes the walk, and that his name is Ray.

I don’t know about you, but I find that kind of enthusiasm and perseverance a sign of a successful life

I offered his story as a jumping off point for a writing prompt in my daily blogs Wonder Wednesday
