“Homeless reservations . . . something positive, not a march of a million tears.”

His friend, who sat quietly, chimes into the conversation. He suggests setting aside pieces of land where homeless people can build a home, or work the earth, build a community. Little farms of sort. Yeah, Joshua says, homeless reservations . . . something positive, not a march of a million tears.

“Favorite song: Too Experienced, by Barrington Levy”

TOO EXPERIENCED
Barrington Levy

She doesn’t want me around
She’s got something to hide
I think she wants a clown, someone to take for a ride
What I keep telling her
I’m too experienced to be taken for a stroll
Too experienced for someone to rock and roll
I’m too experienced to be taken for a ride
And I know it’s not my foolish pride
She hates the sight of me
Because I turned her offer down
She’s always saying we were meant to be
Somehow she thought I’d be her clown
And this is what I sing
I’m too experienced to be taken for a stroll
Too experienced for someone to rock and roll
I’m too experienced to be taken for a ride
And I know it’s not my foolish pride
She doesn’t want me around
She’s got something to hide
I think she want’s a clown, someone to take for a ride
This is what I sing
I’m too experienced to be taken for a stroll
Too experienced for someone to rock and roll
I’m too experienced to be taken for a ride
And I know it’s not my foolish pride

“I am a musician, I am a dishwasher, I stay at a shelter”

Important People in My Life: people I sit with. You are important right now.

Positive Memory: receiving a scooter for Christmas from my older brother.

Wants to Be: a line cook.

Kind Moment: people stop to talk to me, let me into their house, talk about music.

Hostility: only if I start it.

A Thought: it is easy to feel compassion towards homeless in another country, but do you feel compassion towards the homeless in your own country?
