Riding the N Judah - by 23rd Avenue
We just passed a big football-player-in-college looking guy sitting outside on a little bitty balcony. He was wearing a sweatshirt, shoulders hunched against the cold, drinking steaming coffee out of a mug. The balcony was only big enough for him, a tiny chair, and a minuscule table. The difference in scale should have been amusing, but he was so obviously enjoying his mini kingdom. Instead, he reminded me of Babar; somehow dignified and smile-inducing in his undersized chair and balcony.
Babar rare image found here. Wonderful books about his adventures found in a bookstore near you.
