NycmosaicNew York subway highlights (on different rides):

  • Caucasian teen-age girl with red hair. Not just red hair, as in orange or “ginger”. Crimson. It fell straight to her shoulders, with wiry, unnatural consistency.
  • 40’ish black woman. Full, wavy hair. A white top, mini skirt, and gogo boots, with purple scarf and purple leggings.
  • Skinny black guy comes on and yells at the top of his lungs. “I am Mr. Positivity…”; he begins to peddle fragrances.
  • Thirtyish black woman comes on, announces she is an artist, a singer, wishes us a Happy New Year, and then proceeds to belt a stirring rendition of Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come.”

I gave her money.
