Raising His Broom

Modesto is doing well of late. For a while there, his behavior was erratic. We wondered if he was doing crack again. One night he was having a virtual tantrum. Yelling out to and even raising his broom to police cars on the corner. While I tried to calm him down, a local shop owner put his arm around me and said, "he's not hearing you, he's not in his right mind". He might not have been in his right mind, be he did "hear" me. Finally he calmed down and apologized profusely.


  1. mr. modesto
    was in a classic

    you were somehow able to break through his chronic haze.

    probably because
    he respects you.

  2. I just saw this message, Fitz. Thank you for your thoughts.
