The first thing I noticed about Margaret was her hair. Falling well past the middle of her back, it was pearl-like and shining in a loose ponytail that swished gently across the back of her bright pink t-shirt. As I drove past her walking along the side of Shackle Island road, I could not help but notice the brisk strides she was taking in her trim white cropped pants while she hauled a stuffed grocery bag almost half the size of her delicate frame.
