"Hold My Cigarettes"
Jerusalem, Israel, 2015
***

Outside Jerusalem's "First Station" (the defunct train station, recently renovated with shops and restaurants) sits an old decrepit piano.  I was examining it, considering how best to photograph it.  Just then a worn, wrinkled woman carrying too many things surprised me.  "I'll play you a song.  Hold my cigarettes."  She placed the pack near my face, and I took it.  Then she gently tapped out a few notes, and I snapped a photo.  She (and the piano) could still play.  She flashed me a huge smile, retrieved her cigarettes, and left.
