Saw this picture of what looked like paddleboard school standing in front of a string of condos in the background inspired today’s title. But also the thought of many people being evicted in the coming days and months is also strongly on my mind.
Kind of ironic that the next song I heard was Gimme Shelter by the Rolling Stones. I’m afraid I might have a friend soon without a home. That is a long and twisted tale but homeless is homeless. It might not be long until we all know someone.
Ah, what to do about that and many other ills of the world. Those storms that rolled through Iowa and flattened everything in sight. Many days later still tens of thousands without power. I’ve been through that a few times and it’s not pretty.
So I think I’ll make a donation to the Red Cross towards that tomorrow morning. In addition this week I also have to do something to help someone personally. Be it a stranger or a friend. Being separated sometimes takes those opportunities away and hide them from you. But they are out there.
