along with that hopefully will come the end of my homeless time. along with that will come the end of the time i spend in and around the homeless people. i'll probably try to work two jobs until i can get myself stable and save some money so this hopefully doesn't happen again. but what then? i won't be able to speak with the homeless like i do now. i will no longer be one of them. i won't have much time to invest in trying to work with them and for them. so it will be decision time. we all do this at times in our lives. we reach those sliding doors that we have to choose. if we go in one...a set of results are waiting. if we go thru the other one a different set of results are waiting. sometimes it's a tough choice. sometimes it's not.
i have been working on a way to create an advocacy for the homeless. i'm not sure how it's going to work out. i'm not sure it will work out. but i do believe i can't just talk about the homeless and talk about how to help the homeless. i believe i have to do something. i'm a believer in doing. awareness is a good beginning but it has no concrete results. in order to help the homeless you have to be doing.
so...for tonite....here i am. i'm still homeless and i'm still writing this blog for my two readers. i'm still walking among the homeless. i'm still doing whatever i can with them and for them. but the day is close.
i will make a tough choice. i'll open that sliding door and see what's on the other side of it. what's the worst that could happen...i'll be homeless?
see you around town
