The Hobbit of Hawthorne Boulevard has an anxious and diffident look. His walking stick overreaches the top of his head by six inches at least. His fine, tender hair is slipping down over his eyes in a childlike shape that belies the full beard over his t-shirt. He steps to one side, shaking the hair out of his eyes, and then looking down at his feet. Whatever his quest, I wish him well.
