The Magnolia Angel Redux
I watch for this man whenever I drive to work. If I'm on the road early enough I see him. But, I never seem to have my camera or if I do, I don't have time to stop. Yesterday was the exception. I took some of these photos out of the driver's side rear view mirror so as not to call attention to myself.
Who is he?
He is Magnolia's Angel; a local resident who walks to work rain or shine, dressed in a suit and carrying a plastic bag and a trash grabber. His path takes him out of Magnolia village, past Magnolia park, and down the Magnolia bridge. Along the way he picks up trash and his bag is almost always full by the time he gets to the base of the bridge. I've seen him hundreds of times over the years. He's doing his part to keep our neighborhood beautiful.
What else can I say? Whenever I see him, I feel blessed. Instantly.
