Walking through Bradenton, I passed the Manatee County Courthouse. Most people were pedestrians, in harsh light. But Kisha was sitting on steps, eating lunch. When I approached her, she was quite reluctant, and I thought that I would lose her. Until I mentioned the red flower in her hair, that seemed to turn the tide.
Kisha is originally from Chigao, and has been in Bradenton for 10 years. I asked what was the best thin that has happened today, she responded “Waking up.” I get that a lot – I'll have to find a different question. When I asked what her job in the courthouse was, Kisha said, “Oh, I'm just a clerk, a paper pusher.”
What a self image, “I'm just a paper pusher”. :-(
