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

qui·es·cent (adjective)
Etymology: Latin quiescent-, quiescens, present participle of quiescere to become quiet, rest, from quies 1 : marked by inactivity or repose : tranquilly at rest 2 : causing no trouble or symptoms.

I took three grocery bags of "queiscently frozen" treats to Tent City 3 last night. They instantly disappeared. Security took the three bags and jetted. It was pretty funny. I think the woman was going to make sure the women got their share of the fancy ones.

Early night, due to an early morning. All quiet at Nightwatch Dispatch. New group from Inglewood Presby seemed really green. Didn't know about trays, and later in the night I worried about whether they knew where other supplies were located - stuff like spoons. Thank you Jim, Bev?, Dorothy, Graley!
