I looked at the faces of old men sitting patiently on iron benches - Faulkner #QotD

2015.11.17-DSC04884The iron benches of Jackson Square were empty this morning ... but the old men are there in spirit.

"I looked at the faces of old men sitting patiently on iron benches as we slowly paced-men who had learned that living is not only not passionate or joyous, but is not even especially sorrowful."

"Out of Nazareth", William Faulkner, New Orleans Sketches (circa 1925)
