He walked up, looked around, sat his shopping bags down on the ground, and then pulled out his folding chair, sitting it down on the concrete with a metal thunk.
He then proceeded to sit right there, in the middle of the sidewalk, near the 53 bus stop at Wayne and Chelten.
He looked tired. And a bit annoyed. But no one bothered him.
We waited, and right before the bus came, a woman had to tell the young people standing nearby to allow him to get on first.
I thought, how sad. Someone has to tell a young person that he/she should wait and allow the elderly to get on the bus first?
I don’t know about you.
But something about that doesn’t seem right at all.
Anyway, here’s to the end of August. I don’t know about you, but I’m glad this month is over.
ONE MORE THING: September is my birthday month, and I plan to offer a monthlong sale on prints from “The Other Germantown” exhibit. I will have an assortment of framed and unframed 8x10s, 11X14s and 16X20s available… most of which are the first printing of images I’ve made over the past 2.5 years in Historic Germantown. If you didn’t have a chance to pick up something you may have liked during the show, you’ll have all of next month to do so. Gotta unload the inventory and make room for new work. Stay tuned…
Peace and blessings,
