I visited Artscape, a local arts festival in Baltimore, for the first time. Got a chance to see an African drum/dance troupe perform. The brother in this picture was one of the oldest brothers there, and required a seat from which to see the show. But folks kept crowding his view.

The sister to the left?

Every time someone blocked his view, she stepped up. “Excuse me, you need to move so this older brother can see.”

I clowned on her afterwards…that’s what I do among other things. But I appreciated her, and told her as much.
