I’m unsure where the allegations come from, yet I sense sly energy. I had a decent day, though part of my mind went to the street. There is a local gaming shop downtown that I went to today, and there was quite a bit of activity outside. People were pushing shopping carts, some people appeared not to have a home, and some others were hanging out in corners outdoors.
I bought two pizzas from Dominos and thought about sharing some of the pizzas with some people who might need or want food. When I bought the pizza, I intended to share it, yet no one accepted or asked for a piece. I ate my part of the pizza outside the shop, though no one passed that wanted a slice.
I’m not sure where I lie in our local community. Sometimes, I’ve thought I’m very well known, and at other times, it seems I’m just another person passing by saying hello. I’m not confident that I can have a substantial effect, yet perhaps I can and do, yet I’m just not aware.
I put the remaining pizza in its box outside another shop in case someone hungry came across it. I didn’t feel good to have intended on sharing some food with people who might need some to have not directly shared a single slice. I hope that someone came across the pizza, was hungry, and was thankful it was left there for them. Some may not appreciate handouts or free things, yet when I was more street, I’d be super glad to land upon some free food,
Anyhow. Do what you can do for others when you can. We may not be able to ‘solve’ homelessness or street issues independently, but we can plant and tend the fields bit by bit, grain by grain, and seed by seed.
