Rich (Stories from behind the cardboard signs)


He was leaning on his bedroll, a small piece of cardboard folded up next to him.

I watched him from a distance.

I imagined him as a gentle person at peace with himself.

His face held a slight grin as he watched the sea.

The sea bird sitting next to him stayed for as long as I watched.

Homeless? Probably.

Poor? Not by the look on his face.


Today I got my birthday gift from my husband. We went on a beach and dune tour in Florence. It was beautiful. Twenty of us loaded up into an old converted school bus, and took off towards the dunes and beach.

It was a bit chilly but it was clear and sunny. The views were gorgeous. The driver took up up and down the dunes. It ws so much fun. I would do it again in a heart beat.
