While rolling his first cigarette of the day he talked about his poor choices, the drinking and fear of getting arrested.
I put my hand on his shoulder and said "look at that sunrise, isn't it beautiful?" he didn't look up.
"Cliff, c'mon you're gonna miss it and you'll never see this again, never."
Cliff stopped, looked up and smiled, "yeah, that is beautiful, really beautiful, I stopped noticing them a long time ago."
I walked 10 steps and took this picture.
