Granny in the Sun

I decided to actually leave my abode yesterday to sit and watch the sunset while sketching and snacking. As I savored every bite and attempting to work on my story, I heard the scuffing of shoes to my left. As you will find in the Outer Sunset, Chinese grannies and grandpas will gather in a public spot to just enjoy each other's company or chill. In this case, this adorable woman was swinging her feet back and forth like a child at the edge of her seat. I don't know if I conveyed it properly, but it tickled me something fierce.

One of the things I do consciously and unconsciously in life is to look for the child in someone. For this little lady, her inner child shone clear as this beautiful sunlit day.
