This elderly, shoeless lady occasionally walks the streets around my favorite coffee shop begging for coins. She is quite persistent in her attempts to collect a few rupees. Her skin is weathered to a point that it almost looks like worn leather. One day as she was walking away from me I noticed she has symbols tattooed to each of her calves. I have no idea what the tattoos are supposed to represent nor could I ask for we don’t speak common words. I was left wondering what stories bookend her life? Would she tell me if I could ask her?
