I feel good and bad about myself for something I did the other day. As a rule, I don’t give money to panhandlers, nor do I give money to anyone out on the street. But I heard a very excellent version of Blue Rodeo’s Western Skies from a young man outside the mall and couldn’t help myself. I was even in a hurry and was walking away while he continued to play.

So, I feel good that I helped someone who was doing something he enjoyed, and who did something I enjoyed, but I feel bad that I violated my own rules. Oh well, I’ll get over it.
