This particular corner (Thompson and Spring) gets a nice big dose of sun in the mornings. On these cold days, it's especially delightful. Back in March, 2011, I posted about another man enjoying the sun on this block.
Eyes closed, mouth blissfully smiling, he was the picture of happiness and contentment . . . Nothing was going to tear him from that enchanted embrace. As I walked past, I smiled up at him and he continued to grin at the sun. I continued smiling all the way down the block and when I turned back, a shadow had fallen over the sidewalk and he was gone.Is there something magical going on at this intersection?
