all alone sitting
with the homeless
rules of engagement
Today as I sat at Daley Plaza enjoying the weather I had a moment to observe people. Where I sat seemed to have disrupted personal borders. One person with luggage walked up and looked at me shrugged and walked to another bench. Variations on this happened a few times. Once one of the people walked over to another one said something and then moved off.
After about an hour i guess I was accepted as the group stopped glancing my direction.
I felt like I had entered into a society and they were sizing me up. Given I look like a “silver back” and had at least 50#’s on the biggest in the group perhaps they decided to just see what I would do.
It was interesting and gave me insight into a different world.
