First, let’s just say that I am amazed at Self, not others, when it comes to surviving. I am able to look at life on its own terms. And in these mean streets of homeless people, life and the world itself, one must teach Self the ups and downs. Yet the good people of this city tend to reach out to us as equals – I see them every day.

They can always see me. Just look on any park or corner and you will see me. Homeless.
