Hello people, hoping that all is well with you and yours. There is a possibility that I will be selling my shanty and moving into my pick-up. If I do I will try to add happenings to this blog. I will have to get a laptop-type computer and figure out how to connect to the Web in a wireless manner. I am unsure what is going to happen.
Life is short and being even partly miserable makes no sense. Do something, anything, if possible, to maximize happiness. To attain that state of being requires moving away from the place I am now.
I was approached by a fellow asking for a hand-out claiming homelessness. His approach showed his mental state was lucid and his stated reason for being homeless made sense. So, I asked if he wanted to join me for lunch at the Subway sandwich joint in the strip mall where I was parked. I heard an enthusiastic “Sure!!!” so off we went. We shot the shit while eating. Mostly about his predicament but that makes sense since his recent downturn surely overwhelmed his thoughts. Lunch was done and time to go. I handed the guy $5 and told him when better times come to help the next guy. Then, since he declared he had slept in a nearby wooded area in piled-up leaves to assist in keeping warm we went to my truck where I had three large thick 55-gallon plastic bags that could be used to shed rain and wind. Then we went our ways.
Just a tale. It is a true one. Placed here for no particular reason other than this blog being based upon dealing with homelessness. Something to think of… what goes around sometimes comes around. Then, also, sometimes it doesn’t. Oh well.
For you religious folks; I read a tale years ago and unsure of its source but it is interesting. Well, it is to me. Supposedly, at times, God sends angels to Earth in the guise of humans. Those angels interact with humans in various way to observe those mortals. If true, if such a thing really happens… how have you interacted with folks new to you?
