The renaissance negresse is street smart!

Being a tough, hyper-vigilant survivor sure comes in handy sometimes, like now, confronting untreated mentally ill folks touching my stuff at the station! For example: "That's my bag. So, you don't need to touch it." This is like when I was busking, only 5 times as "interesting"!

Make yourself a beautiful day!
