Richard at the markets playing chess

The Spirit of Richard

posted in: Soul Stories! | 0

I’m Richard – I’ve been coming here to Nundah markets for, oh – must be the past 8 years.  Since way before ‘Can-do Campbell’ was Lord Mayor of Brisbane.  When I first began there were only 4 or 5 stalls.  Now its grown a lot, but still not too busy. People bring their dogs and their kids and relax on a Sunday morning, and the stall holders are all friendly.

I like to play chess, so I just set up my chess board and play chess with whoever stops by.  Young kids, old guys like me – all sorts.  Beats sitting at home alone having nobody to play a game with, and I get to meet lots of different people. If you want something, just go out and do it – that’s my motto.
