When I came out of the parking garage and into this park, I spotted this man amidst dozens of potted plants that he was busy putting in the soil. “What a great thing.” I thought, “He makes the world more beautiful.” I went over and asked if I could take his photo. He allowed me to do so. When I asked, he told me he is from El Salvador. I’d lived and taught there for a couple of months two years ago. We chatted for a few minutes about El Salvador and his new life here in the US. Then we shook hands and went our ways.
