I was touring the waterfront, trolling for new patrons when I encountered Pinky. He was organizing his carts and had many of his possessions spread out on the ground when I pedaled up. We stood and chatted, he asked me to help him assemble a choker necklace (which I did). Pinky read to me from a book on meditaiton by Thich Naht Hanh, which he checked out before I left. He also read to me from his own journal, his daily inspirational thoughts and poems.
