The gentle givers

When You Walk Into Azar's Oriental Rugs in downtown Birmingham, Michigan, there is a feeling of light and space, even at night. At first you think it might be because of the very high ceilings, large windows, and the multiple fluorescent fixtures, combines with richly colored rugs stacked low and hanging on the walls.

But somehow, these don't explain your intangible, yet difinite, awareness of peace and welcome. Then you notice the smiles and reserved alertness of the several young men who vault from sitting on the piles of rugs to welcome you. As unusual as this is for a commercial business, there's a special purity here.
