Prove It Clarksville: Day Eight: Oatmeal and Offerings

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Well, it’s day eight, but who’s counting?

I wanted to get to my spot by 10:00am this morning, so I got up and headed out early to catch the bus, not even taking the time to eat my oatmeal. The oatmeal, by the way, has been a lifesaver.

This past winter when we were doing the warming shelters, Mat Lasater (of Lasaters) donated these cool little cups of oatmeal, and all you have to do is add warm water, so I brought some with me to see how they do out in the woods … and from this point on, they’ll be standard issue in Manna Café’s homeless bags.

Jhesika Jade Riggins and her boys dropped off some money and a sweet tea for me.

Prove It Clarksville: Day Six: Workin’ Man Blues

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Hi, I missed you!

I’m sorry these two days are late, but I worked a couple of side jobs the last two nights—and on top of sneaking in and out of camp, riding the bus, and standing on my street corners as long as possible, it made for a couple of very long days. In fact, Friday night I got only five hours of sleep, if you can call it that. I’m still not used to this hard ground.

As I’m writing this, I can sense some of you rolling your eyes all the way back into your head (they’re making sounds almost like a slot machine). You’re thinking, “I knew it! I knew he’d sell out!—He’s working, and the homeless are lazy—they don’t work!”
