People I Met Today

February 26, 2013

ITALY’S ¬†general elections are over, there’s a hung parliament, a comedian holds the cards, the eurozone is having conniptions, the markets are falling, confusion reigns.

But life goes on in Sicily. People were out and about today, looking unfazed.

Here is Angelo, who lives a block or two and a few flights of stairs below me, in front of his lovely red doors.

Carmelo was chasing down his dog, Attila. When he finally nabbed him, I asked if they’d pose. (Attila was way more eager than his human.)

These women didn’t seem to mind my camera or that I interrupted their gabfest, but, boo, I forgot to ask their names.

Angelo #2. He spotted me in his alleyway and asked what was I doing walking all alone (!) on a chilly day (mid-50s)? I said I had a job to do, that I loved his smile, and would he mind ?

And where are his thoughts, he of the White Undershirt?
