running water, electricity, heat, internet, a refrigerator, waking up in the same place every morning, a bed, hanging up my clothes in a closet, a medicine cabinet, leaving the shampoo in the bathtub after a shower, keys, neighbors, pillows, hand washing lingerie and hanging panties on the shower curtain rod. . . .
i am a very lucky homeless person: i have a credit card, i have means, i have a car, i have friends. the friends are the most important part of the equation. still, i have been tired. i have been scared. i have been weary of being on the road. it is good to have a place to call home and i promise to never take for granted the things i have been blessed with.
