Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

Too Much Stuff

Such a lovely pipe organ. Lorri (my wife) and I restored it, and now it just sits there, like so many other things, taking up room. I've already got a pump organ (like, who in their right mind needs TWO PUMP ORGANS!).

Human beings feel so compelled to collect stuff. It's weird.

Then I meet some homeless person who is content (for now) with one little duffel bag.

Of course, as soon as they move into our apartment building, they fill their place to the brim. I always laugh when they move away and it takes two trips with a truck.
