I passed a construction site today.Sitting on a pile of wood, his back against a detour sign, was an elderly construction worker. With his relaxed pose and bowed head, I thought he was napping. As I got closer, I realized he was reading.

In the middle of a construction zone, with bulldozers passing within feet of his out-stretched legs, he was calmly turning the pages of a P.D. James book.

It was sort of lovely.
