There for You
I was walking back from a concert. I usually liked listening to live music, especially in New Orleans, but that day I felt lonely. Couples, friends, it seemed like all of the crowd was having fun, chatting to each other, eating something.
I didn’t like the spot where I was sitting. I moved to a table, and a waitress asked me not to take it because I was by myself. The first set was over and I took off. The crossing of Decatur, Peters and Conti Streets, that’s where I saw this.
People, mostly tourists, were walking by. It was getting dark, so the street light “pointed” at this crack for me. Dark shadows and a piece of this warm and tender “hug” by a leaf. That was what I saw. It’s about support. It’s about being with somebody who is not feeling good, being with her maybe even just in her heart.
