968. A Ruse

A vagrant stops me
for change...his eyes betray
his true need.

I have to confess, I never say no to anyone asking for money or food. My brother always says, if you've got to err, err on the side of compassion.

Never know what to do, I let my feeling guide me!?

Aurora: I know what you mean. Lately I honestly don't usually have change to give (cash, what's that?).

Andrew: It's uncanny.

John: Thanks.

Pat: Thanks.

Borut: I understand. In the end it doesn't really hurt either way but sometimes it is just inconvenient to stop and root around in my wallet... :-)

Masago said...

Polona: I understand (me too).
