Another day, another homeless free woman/gardener/quilter/banana-bread lover/romance-novel-reader/shower stall chanteuse reassuring me and herself that it's better to live hungry, fearful and on the street than with an abusive husband.

This is Harriet. She sang me a song about a photographer with a beautiful smile as I looked all around wondering who she was singing to as I clicked away. This made her laugh and then she told me a story about a man who never smiled and never had a kind word that she had to get away from. This made her smile fade for a moment and then come back brighter than before.
