Fuchsia hat. Indigo blue eyes. A little girl seated with her grandpa stares out at the people seated across from her. Not blinking. Barely moving.
She looks like a candy. A sweet colourful candy in her multicoloured striped sweater, brilliant pink hat and bright blue boots. She is a spot of sizzling colour in an otherwise drab subway car.
Her grandpa moves the scarf from her face, and she smiles and yawns. She looks up at her grandpa’s adoring face and lays her head on his shoulder. He gently strokes the little one’s hair and she closes her eyes.
A private moment in a public place.
A snapshot of peace in a harried, hurried subway car.
A Monday morning moment on the train.
