A steering heart can give novice citizens their break & their talent.

Young ago, I was picked up by a silver lady because she saw me sweating up a hill with a steel toolbox. Turns out she was a top architect smart enough to see a good young man. A bit later I was fixing planter boxes for politicians and peeling wallpaper for lawyers and erecting museum exhibits for all to see. A little trust made me real.

Years go by, and 50 times I take a stranger, but 40 times I’ve been stupid and wrong and hurt and cheated, choosing idiots I couldn’t imagine were so horrid.

Nevertheless, I am not here to please me, but better every chance.
