Receipts from the grocery store, we consumers have ten items a foot of paper to print cash rendered and paragraphs explaining values and valid dates and store information and numbers, logos, and each individual cash tended entries. Bills and bills to inform usage, data and data, we better stop trying, trying to crowd the industry. The man at sleep, blanket wrapped around him protecting him. His home is public and so should yours, he exposes his weaknesses, his financial debt, his problems and efforts of the bottles he pushes under his blanket like there treasure and it’s his next meal. And it will be his next meal. I know he’s safe and warm, he tells me this, and he lets the world and public understand defeat. The public ask if this man is just lazy, maybe he is being an animal just like you and I and is being real to this earth, living from the direct environment, collecting treasure, simple ideas of warmth, meals, and shelter. He found two alike boots but, rather different from detail. The look on his face, peaceful, he is sleeping, dreaming. Peace is with him, his simple needs are satisfied. His defeat is misunderstood. The man is a person who doesn’t need lies, products, marketing, and fabricated houses that media portrays. He is a man of real anarchy and real society defiance, he is my idol.

this piece caught me, both for its observations and its introspections, for the time it takes to notice things and for the conclusions it draws... "His defeat is misunderstood" is a stellar line... although I'm not sure how much or how many men on street corners would agree with you, it does seem human beings confuse want and need all too readily... desire's the root of suffering, right? simplify the surplus and enlightenment will follow... one day…

thanks for this. your take on things is always keen and incisive.
