Walking home from school last night I passed a small homeless man with a squat face dragging his belongings heaped in a shopping cart. It was a bit windy and I wasn't prepared. I guess I looked chilled because he waved as he approached and I took out my ear buds.
"I just left a scarf on a pole down the street there and you go on and take it and wrap yourself up," he said with a toothless smile.
I thanked him profusely and told him that since I was only about a block from home I'd leave it for someone who needed it more.
We wished each other goodnight and carried on in our own ways.
