Alleyway

Last Night
Healdsburg, California
Alleyway
“I am not a fan of people who abuse service staff. In fact, I find it intolerable. It’s an unpardonable sin as far as I’m concerned, taking out personal business or some other kind of dissatisfaction on a waiter or busboy.” 

– Anthony Bourdain

After an amazing dinner last night, my sister and I took a turn around the neighborhood of restaurants, bakeries, and businesses. 

Passing by this alleyway, I was drawn to the light, the pink graffiti on the wall and garbage cans.

It reminded me of working at kitchens and walking out the garbage, the last task of the day or evening after a long shift of back breaking work and pace.

Some of the most beautiful sunsets, I\’ve witnessed were from the alleyways behind restaurants as I carried out big bags of garbage at the close of a shift. 

After dumping the garbage.

Exhausted, my body worked and stretched to the limit, I would pause and watch the sunset if it was still light out or the stars and moon if it was dark.
