The Boy with the Sunflowers
This boy caught my eye on Saturday. He was carrying a bunch of sunflowers – almost as big as himself – through the streets of Aix. He reminded me in part of the Pied Piper, in part of a tour guide selling the wonders of Provence … what could I do but follow him?
I never did see his face, but I hope he got where he was going with his sunflowers intact, and that they are brightening up someone’s Monday.
