Prove It Clarksville: Day Ten: Crayons and Copper

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – The biggest event of this day was that I got to take a shower. It was the first one since last Wednesday night, and trust me that it was a worship experience in itself—not to mention using a real toilet and not feeling rushed. Oh, the things we take for granted.

You know, there are a lot of talented people riding the bus, living in shelters, or even sleeping in tents and under bridges. Yesterday morning at the bus stop, I noticed a young man with a sketchpad and pencils.

Salon 615: It’s All About “The Voice”

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/Writer Nashville, TN – I’ve discovered another benefit of urban living in Downtown, Nashville: very cool neighbors.  Of course there are musicians and songwriters everywhere, and so when I passed my neighbor’s door and often heard him belting out classic rock tunes, I took him to be a touring musician who fronted a band.

I don’t know if what sealed that estimation was helped by the fact that he had long rocker-worthy hair, dressed in jeans and a T-shirt most days, and had this distinctively mellow yet baritone voice when he spoke going up and down on the elevator.
