Meandering after hibernation

I met a kid that commutes from west of Lakewood to Boulder. There are some drunks on the mall ride but they don't realize that they are annoying.  This cute guy who is 25 is talking freely but I'm sure if he wasn't a good guy he would have ignored her.

Waiting for Bus

I was waiting for the bus when some guy asked me for money. I didn't have any. I them realized that ma aube he needed help with his homeless situation.  I asked where he was called can camped. He said 10 blocks down.  I referred him to Jeffco Action Center but he said he couldn't walk that far.  I continued offering places like The Rescue Mission but he was trying to get back to Aurora.  His sister wouldn't accept him in the drunken condition. I then suggested a few free rehabs to get him sober but of course, he said he could get sober on his own. I finally realuzed that he has the desire to change but wasn't willing to do what wad needed. Some intelligent homeless alcoholics might turn themselves around. I hope for his sake he will think about what we talked about and change hus life.

Not Being Homeless

We you leave the homeless lifestyle you start to become less associated with the environment.  You start to look down at the people not helping themselves and want to pass them by as if you are better than them.  I don't want that to happen.  I believe if I start to focus on helping at least one a week, then work my way to one a day, I will remember that I came from this place.  I flew a sign few minutes one day to help a friend but felt bad after seeing someone I knew driving by in a car.  There are some people that sit on the corner by my street that I know have a place of their own.  I want to help them but as long as they are begging for money I don't feel there is much to do to help.  I want to start reaching out to them to explain there are groups, resources, and a better way to earn money.  I hope this blog lets people know where I am now in my life and where I would like to be.  I am a bit crazy sometimes because no matter how you try to remove yourself from your life …
