Last time I walked here was over a year ago,
I love it there,
on the weekend I want to go and sit and draw,
and people watch, I like to do that,
young couples holding hands,
walking fast, places to go and people to see,
sometimes there is someone playing guitar,
I smile showing my appreciation,
I like to sit with the elderly,
some are so alone,
they tell me their stories of days gone by,
we share a laugh and sometimes a cry,
I love to see an elderly couple walking together holding hands,
slowly and meticulously they care for one another,
years of together showing how much they are still in love,
I love to see little children as they walk past their parents,
some come right up and say hello,
while others sheepishly hide behind a pant leg,
I love to watch people walking with their dogs
and sometimes the owners look a lot like their pets,
I have never understood carrying a little dog
while you are out for a walk, or when they carry them in a little bag.
I am sure they want to run or walk too.
I like to take pictures of tourists, they are always thrilled when they get a group picture,
I say hello to homeless people, sometimes it is enough to make them smile.
Every one has a story. sometimes just by watching, you can get a sense of them.
Happy, Sad, Lost, Angry, Forgiven, Forgetting, Singing, Laughing, Alone,
Lonely, Boisterous, Shy, Outgoing, Loving, Kind,
and most of all
People Really Want to Feel Needed and Understood,
I hope today you make Someones Day,
If I get to draw this weekend,
I will post those drawings.
