Seen & Heard

Seen today: a chicken, or possibly a rooster, sitting in a palm tree.

Heard last night: a couple arguing as they walked down the sidewalk. Then an audible slap and a woman’s tears. I hesitated, then went out to see if she was all right. I found her sitting on my neighbor’s front lawn, weeping. I asked her if there was anything I could do to help, and she got up and ran off, sobbing and waving her hands in the air. I don’t know what else I could have done, but I’m haunted anyway.

    You worry me – please take care. In your neighbourhood you could walk into trouble trying to be a good samaritan. Sometimes with domestic fights, if one interfers – both parties can turn on you and life can turn ugly.

    BTW that was a very nice gesture, just the same.
