A nice man approached me & said,
“I have a really strange question to ask you. I mean, it’s going to sound really bizarre.”
Me: “Ask away!”
Him: “Well, I don’t know if it’s my drink or what, but I’m sitting here watching you paint and I’m having this surreal experience. Would I have seen you painting in…Dubai?” Curls his brow, "Like did I see you painting at the Raffles Hotel…. in Dubai?"
Me: “Actually yes that was me! I paint there once a year for a month. Wait. Where are you from?”
Him: “I live in Australia but I travel to Dubai frequently and I could have sworn I saw you making these painting in the lobby of that hotel but I was like, well, that was in Dubai and now I’m seeing her in Edmonton? What in the the world is she doing here?"
Me: “That’s amazing we are seeing each-other now for the second time, first in Dubai and now in Edmonton and you live in Australia!”
Him: “Well I only know if 2 artists and I thought it was so uncanny to see you here tonight! I really enjoyed watching you paint and your paintings are beautiful!”
