Young man gives his seat up to a little boy who is traveling with his mother. I’ve seen them before on this route. She is thin and does odd things with her mouth. She is poor and has to search for money before boarding, letting others pass before her. She has been waiting for a while and has had plenty of time to get her money out but has probably been avoiding looking in her purse, fearing the desolation there.
I am a musician living in the Hudson Valley, New York State, USA. My wife, Tami and I have some chickens and dwarf goats, a dog, Luna, and a cat, Karen. After living in Boston for most of my life, this rural lifestyle is a big, albeit welcome change.
