A Small, Good Thing

For no specific reason, this bakery near my house has always reminded me of Raymond Carver's short story:  “A Small, Good Thing”! The aged man-baker makes the most delicious pastries in a traditional style as we watch him with admiration from behind the window. The baker is calm. The baker is patient. The baker thinks. The baker feels.

Whenever I pass by, I always see the boy, the mother, the father, the car and the baker....
