I was recently asked what I thought about all the ruckus over the Confederate flag. The individual doing the asking is an older white male that I’ve come to know as a nice guy but…completely clueless about institutionalized racism and white privilege. You see, his asking me what I thought wasn’t really out of curiosity, …

Pinky’s Present

A gift covered with newspaper

It’s that time of year again, watching people look like lemmings as they run to the nearest outlet mall or department store to spend their money. Even before I became homeless, I taught my kids that the holidays are not an excuse to grant them excessive wishes once a year but after we were homeless, …

White Eagle corn in my hand

Been busy working in the gardens lately as I’m pretty much in charge of 6 plots. In addition to growing food for those who can’t afford to, I also grow indigenous plants to save them from extinction or exploitation. I got in the mail the other day, some seeds I had been wanting because they …

It’s easy to get caught up in the banality of everyday living, something I don’t recommend doing. Since I can only speak from where I’ve been and see myself going, I can only give you glimpses of the life I’m currently living. Yes, to many it’s a nightmare they don’t want to live much less …

  How many of you have passed by clover growing wherever it can find a comfortable spot? It will quickly take over a garden or lawn yet it is one of the most valuable “weeds” you can come across. Red and white clover are not only nutritious but are easily recognizable as most children go …

Greater plantain

I think everyone should know basic survival skills no matter where on this planet they happen to be. A good start would be to learn how to identify edible plants and where they grow as well as at what time of year you’re most likely to find a particular plant. On my last post about wild …

Coffee can cooker oven

As you can see from the picture to the left, my daughter is holding up a basic coffee can cooker that I made. Sure you can get fancy and make all kinds of modifications to suit your needs but the whole point of making them as simple as possible for homeless folks is so that …
