I was going to the drugstore and noticed this older gentleman with a briefcase standing on the sidewalk. He looked like he was waiting for someone. He walked about 10 meters down the street, stopped, turned, walked back, stopped, looked at the street, walked back again, etc. This pattern continued at least for those ten minutes that I stood there on the sidewalk nearby. Perhaps he suffered a dementia, perhaps he actually was passing time and waiting for someone, perhaps he wasn't playing with a full deck. Nevertheless, it's interesting how an ordinary and familiar - even boring - scene can sometimes turn into something interesting and almost a dream. It was in this dream that we met. Me and Him.
