Stewart

Stewart is a fixture in south Austin. Maybe in his 50’s, he’s paper thin, frail and uses a walker to support himself. His left leg appears permanently deformed and useless. He’s always got a big smile on display for drivers. So as I’m pulling into the Walmart parking lot I saw him. He was about to pile into a vehicle with two other needy people who looked like the car was where they lived. Two small mutts were in the front seat. I was out of people food but I had two cans of dog food. “Hey Stewart, I know you.” He smiled and said hello. We chatted for a moment as I put the cans atop the old Ford sedan. IMG_2212
