I've always said that my favorite view of Seattle (or any big city) is in the rear-view mirror. But one day I happened to be walking in Seattle, alone, and a big man in long hair and beard ran up and began walking right next to me. It was a relatively quiet street, no one else on the sidewalk within a block, and I wondered if this might be a mugging. But the man started talking with me, and I soon found myself throroughly enjoying his company. He brightened my whole day---the greatest conversationalist I've ever heard. After two blocks, he said, "Say, you don't happen to have a quarter, do you?" I happily gave him a quarter, and he smiled, thanked me, and walked off another way. Many have approached me, bumming spare change, but this guy certainly earned his! To this day, forty years later, I enjoy what he gave me for only a quarter.
