Mocha Makes Me Mellow



Okay, I’m procrastinating.  I should be doing "real" work but instead I’m in a bit of a mood and I just feel like organizing stuff.  Since I’m trying to ignore the urge and actually work I’m sitting at my PC.  Oh, look! I should organize all these recent photos before they get out of hand! :-)

I came across a few photos I took at Zeitgeist while waiting for M to join me for the First Thursday Art Walk last week.  The place was nearly empty so I took a seat at the window to watch the world go by while I waited.  I’d barely sat down when an older guy sat next to me.  Thin but not frail; long, long scraggly grey beard and not quite so long hair; dressed rather nattily.  He wanted to talk.

As I finished taking my photos he asked me photography questions and then we moved on to all sorts of random topics.  From our conversation I would say former Harley rider; bit of a hell-raiser; at the core a gentle spirit; engaged; involved; interested; resigned to the fact that he now has a "boring, family-style" car.  He left before M arrived but I saw him a couple times that night as he made his way through the various galleries, still active and interested.  Still living life.
