An old woman trudging through an empty city square

Early Morning Shopper It was early, before the sun creased the horizon, and I watched this old woman, cane and bag in hand, trudging across the square - I wondered where she had been and where she was going at this hour. But as she passed me, she seemed content, resigned - I sensed she had done many mornings before, and would be doing it in the many morning to come.
