Not sure if it was mitzvah or madness, but I stopped today on my way back to the hotel and had a lovely conversation with a homeless woman and her dog, Hummus. We talked about casual things from walking our dogs to bragging about our kids. We laughed and enjoyed the ease of conversation without worry of the social barriers that often pull people apart. She had a dog who reminded me of my Wynter and I had a few moments to spare. She wasn’t asking me for money and I wasn’t judging her for her choices in life. We were simply two women on the street who love dogs. Good luck my friend, safe travels to you and Hummus.
