He was just standing there.. In the middle of the street.

I have this hardwired tendency to observe people and wonder what's going on with them for waaay too long.  I took this picture on the 4th of July, 2015.  I still wonder about this guy every time I look at this photo in my phone.  I'm sure he's a veteran, as this building is the Dallas VA Medical Center.  Is he experiencing depression or disgust with an experience he had inside the VA?  Or does he have some sort of addiction he'd like them to fix?  I know!  He has anxiety about going inside!  Or... maybe for no reason at all, he was just... standing there.  I didn't blow at him; shout out to him; or laugh at him.   I was stopped at a red light watching him stand there. Then I held up traffic a second to snap this shot.

Anyone can teach you about love... but I can make you good at it!
