friday's green

strangers who have inspired me, part one:

the older woman at the thrift store yesterday who tried out the pogo stick and landed, quite spectacularly, with a loud crash near the office supplies but just laughed and got right back up

the guy on the skateboard who moved with his entire body, like a dancer, on a sliver of sidewalk, who sailed past gas stations and drug stores and so many dumb cars as if he was riding some invisible wave

the guy in our neighborhood who walks every single day, slowly, deliberately, as if his life depends on it
