A Woman on the Streets of San Miguel

This woman sort of broke my heart. Her name is Maria .I kept imaging her as a lost little girl.
She had a little flower plant in a little plastic cup on the sidewalk next to her.
Maria told me she is sixty-one years old.
Seeing her brought out every fear I have ever had about being a "bag lady".
She was telling me she has a son.
I wonder if she will be in the same place tomorrow.
I try to tell myself she is some kind of con-woman, but I don't believe it.She thanked me. It makes me cry to look at her in these pictures.

If you read this morning's post and didn't like it,
I added a comment at the bottom of the post that you might like even less.
