Assets and Liabilities

I realize that I post infrequently these days (not much traffic on this site). I’m now in a hotel, safe, with a quiet place to work, but still not sure what to work *on*… At least, not for employment. I’m still diving deep into music, it’s almost a compulsion at...Read more

Rough times? Stay in prayer and study.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here, mostly because the site metrics showed that there was very little traffic, so, instead, I’ve posted to Facebook. I’m still alive, still in the shelter, seemingly no progress. Posting today a couple of things I put on Facebook to allow you a bit...Read more
Homeless – Day 9 – Starbucks Groove

Homeless – Day 9 – Starbucks Groove

Sitting in Starbucks (they don’t usually hassle you for loitering), whipped out my midi controller and started playing. Still slowly coming to grips with the function and use of the various parts and pieces in this genre, but enjoying doing it.Read more

Homeless – Day 8 – So. Very. Sick.

I’m exhausted. Haven’t been able to sleep, or take meds. Brain glitching pretty consistently now… And I’m sick. So. So. Sick. It’s absolutely impossible to find a safe place to sleep during the day, I’ve been asked to leave the library several times… I don’t know how much longer I’ll...Read more

Homeless – Day 6 – How do we even begin?

I’m going to leave you with one more thought tonight. In my minimal time being slightly-homeless, I’ve seen and heard things you can’t imagine. The scope and scale of the issue is absolutely incomprehensible. Most of the people I’ve talked to have no hope, no dignity, and no self respect....Read more
Homeless – Day 6 – Finally got to the praise

Homeless – Day 6 – Finally got to the praise

Praise to the everlasting God, provider, and maker of paths. Before the world was created, before my mother held me in her arms, the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob prepared for me, on this brutal morning, this perfect, warm, hot chocolate-y gift to encourage and soothe. The choclatey warmth...Read more

Homeless – Day 6 – Sick.

Ok… It’s 3am… Haven’t been able to take MMJ for 3 days. My poor body is sore, swollen, stiff, and exhausted. My brain is glitchy. I can’t sleep. Topping this morning off: I’m sick. It sure feels like Satan’s over-playing his hand. We will rejoice together when restitution comes… Alright,...Read more

Homeless – Day 5 – New Groove: God of Jacob

Lyrics are always a bit like a game of Tetris to me, so I don’t have anything share yet, still getting pieces to fit. I’ll keep playing with this, may throw out a sketch or lyrics as I continue to massage the pieces into place: https://soundcloud.com/user-83314410/2020-01-25-groove-drums-keysRead more

Homeless – Day 5 – I can go ANYWHERE

It instantly occurs to me, I’ve been mentioning that I believe someone has already prepared a room for me (you’re not going to convince me otherwise). I have no ties. I can go anywhere. If you’ve been instructed to prepare a room, I can hop a bus or train, and...Read more
Homeless – Day 5 – I have a pallette?

Homeless – Day 5 – I have a pallette?

This is just the sort of thing that amuses me. About 6 months ago, I looked around me and noticed that, unintentionally, I have a pallette. Nearly everything I owned was blue, white, or black. Things I’ve had for decades, gifts, random items. I shrugged and thought, “Yeah, those colors...Read more

Homeless – Day 5 – Moments in the Morning

When praise is costly, the sacrifice of heroic thankfulness is a pleasing aroma to our God. As I lie here in the dark, surrounded by hundreds of snoring, forgotten people, I imagine my silent worship sanctifies this hopeless place, and the aimless flock it oversees.Read more
Homeless – Day 4

Homeless – Day 4

Sometimes, these days, it’s no small feat to remember to give thanks and praise. The pains and insults, misunderstandings and neglect, can create a perfect storm of unrighteous grumbling. I know because I am chief among the grumblers! Choosing to lift your eyes from the filth, and aligning them properly...Read more

Homeless – Day 3 – Shelter

I spent all of my energy, and most of my day trying to get into a shelter and to the location… Now, I had no idea what to expect, so, let me give you some idea how the day went. First, I called to get a recommendation, then gave my...Read more
Homeless – Day 3

Homeless – Day 3

Day 3: I’ve been trying to figure out what to write. It probably makes sense to start with a portion from my morning reading: 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will...Read more
Homeless – Day 2

Homeless – Day 2

Day 2: So blessed last night to reconnect to an old friend, and have a safe, warm place to sleep. I honestly feel tiny in this super huge room, I’m not used to all this space! I didn’t sleep too well last night… It wasn’t the common tossing and turning,...Read more

Homeless – Day 1 – Safe Place

Let me ease your mind, and encourage. It’s the least I can do as that has been gifted to me. I’m in a safe place for 2 days, and reconnected with an old friend in a way that I think encouraged us both. Please continue sharing this, I still believe...Read more
Homeless – Day 1

Homeless – Day 1

I’m now homeless. I literally believe there’s someone who’s prepared a room for me for the next year, they just don’t know it’s for me yet! Share this, with EVERYONE, help us connect! My biggest need right now is a safe place to sleep tonight. TONIGHT. I’m working on getting...Read more
