Where did he get that bag? Did a grandkid give it to him? Was it a free promotional item at a market? Did he laugh and say, “I need to have this.” Did he always want to be popular? Is he?
I shake my head in disbelief and gratitude for this moment.
He and his companion were meandering down rue Mouffetard in their matching yellow pantalons, both of them unsteady on their feet. I was hovering around the butcher shop waiting for Christophe. I had my phone in my hand and was able to capture this photo undetected.
Life lesson: The best camera is the one you have with you.
Another life lesson: Walk arm-in-arm whenever you have the chance.
These moment are the work of angels. Merci mes anges. Merci.
