Rushing to work, she couldn’t help but notice the homelessness in the Métro station.  Each day at mid-day the same persons are at their “stations”.  Another flight down and she reaches the train rails and watches another person getting ready to get set up upstairs next to the convenience store, as she sees every day.  The man feeds her discreetly, respectfully, then pushes her wheelchair upstairs for a few hours where she sits…alone, waiting.
