Tiring work. Hope it pays enough to make a difference. It takes a lot to get through each day sometimes. And there can't be a lot of margin in tissues. I wonder to myself: is this an organized, child-employing tissue enterprise, or an independent venture? I hope the kid is getting a decent cut. I seem to recall getting involved in some pretty unreasonable arrangements as a child myself, distributing advertising flyers. I can't imagine how rough a tissue racket might be. When you are small, an hour seems forever -

well, thanks for the picture. A bright and beautiful ugly sad moment. Commerce's wheel grinding peons in the sun, and beauty seeping into/out of everything. A good shot.
