Man In Aurora. He was speaking with the barista about how he often speaks negatively and about a Rastafari philosophy of always speaking in positives and how he might should start working towards that ideal. He seemed like a great person to get a flower. He thanked me and said, "It's for today. That's fantastic." The barista asked what it was. He said, "It's a beautiful flower" and the thanked me again. As I was leaving, he asked the barista, "Do you want to see it?"

He got the flower pictured here, from the first white batch.

I had given him another flower at the very same corner. He thanked me.
