Spare a nickel

Dec 3, 2008

At Weaver Street Market today, an old man sat outside with a sign on his chest: “I enjoy conversation. Sit with me for 5 minutes.”

I didn’t bother to spare a few moments to chat with him, and as I rushed by him, I was doubly shamed because, dammit, that simple sign is the kernel of the storyblogging idea that I’ve been thinking about, but not building on, for far too long.
