Turning the Corner
The parts of the North West corner of 8th Avenue and 16th street that weren't moving between 11 and midnight, Saturday night.
When I shook my head and said I had nothing to give, the begging guy smiled and said, "Yeah, don't ever pay to ask an artist for money." Then he looked at my drawing and told me I could make a fortune if I became a cartoonist and had I ever thought of that?
I gave him 60 cents because every bit of encouragement helps.
