Mohammed Seeks the Spirit


Mohammed approached the cart exclaiming, "Happy New Year, Happy New Year!"  He addressed everyone he passed on his way over.  He asked about the cart and asked if I was selling books.  It's a library, I told him, splitting my orange and offering him half.  "You are a beautiful lady, lady," he said.  He wanted some spiritual books.  I have some Christian books, I told him. He settled on a selection of daily meditations.
