i see stuff




I saw this woman today.

A friend I was with thought it was sad that she's all alone out there.
I saw her more as an independent spirit who waits for nothing(except the bus) and answers to no one. Look at those old school adidas... Rock it, granny! I salute you.








This woman is rad. I very much enjoyed the moments I spent riding behind her.


xx,
me

Hey Clementine,
First off, great blog! I love reading about uh...reading. But honestly, you have a great wit & nice way with words. I have to say I'm a little dissapointed that you haven't posted any of your drawings though. Would love to see those too.
Anyyyyway. After browsing your blog I came across your great photo of the old nanna in her sneakers clutching her bus token. I love characters like this & I couldn't resist drawing her myself. Here's a link to the drawing http://img51.imageshack.us/img51/3493/buslady.jpg
Hope you don't mind! I love people watching & will often go home & sketch people that catch my eye.
Anyway, wishing you continued success with your blog & writing and apologies for the many ramblings.
All the best,

Erin
