Newspapers in a bag

She looks out of a plastic bag, a face from abroad, from Asia, the orient as it used to be called. Whose life is it? How many lives and stories are recorded inside the pages.

Why collect newspapers? Why not bin them ? They go to a friend who does not get a paper but likes to catch up with the news once in a while.

So a weeks worth of news travels a mile to be read again. Perused, inspected,, imbibed.

Words of faith, hate, crimes, love, jeopardy, booze, history, mainstream and minor musical scales. Obituaries and marriages, births and birthdays. I like to share. Yesterday’s news but not just chip wrapping paper yet. ..
