A woman briefly considers the shoes, but then moves on.

All players welcome

There’s a piano at Union Station, with a sign inviting people to step up and play.

This woman had just finished playing, with that little girl next to her the whole time.  The rest of their family was close by, obviously proud of what was going on. And it was a privilege for me to get to share in their afternoon, if only for a single moment.

The higher the hair…

“The higher the hair, the closer to God.” That’s what we say in Texas.

If it’s as true in California as it is in Texas, then this place was practically like going to church.

Frank’s pay phone

There were a lot of pay phones in Los Angeles, at least in the part of town we were in. So, if you want to use a pay phone, for nostalgia or other reasons, LA’d be the place to go.

This one, for some reason, seems to be closely connected to Frank Sinatra, although he was not using it at the time I walked past.
