but it really speaks to me about connectedness,
the prompt for the Sunday creative this week.
I was walking with my camera in Jackson Square,
in New Orleans last January.
A group that you might call "down and out" were enjoying each other's company,
sharing a beer can in a paper bag,
and generally forgetting their cares and concerns.
I'm from New Orleans,
and I've met "these people" before.
These were the patients when I worked at
Charity Hospital in the early '90's.
On this particular day, they were cheerful, silly
...and only too happy to pose for my camera.
I'm sure their connectedness is a key to their survival.
