For a few days there's been an older man sitting on the benches around the Kendall Square globe fountain, panhandling, holding his sign with some tremor. This morning there was a second sign offering a camera "with disk" for sale, saying they got it for $90, would like $60. (I think maybe even saying something about 3 payments of 20?) Anyway somehow that detail broke my heart.
(Went back to give him a bit more money... wasn't 3 payments, but it was something about helping paying for PT)
Notes by HP Lovecraft...
"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time, And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more: it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing."Just finished it. What a game... if Saints Row the Third was GTA dialed up to 11, this is GTA dialed up to 14 or 15.
