earning a prophet's wage

Your post makes me laugh and cry. Thanks for sharing.

It reminds me of a post I read years ago. Different, but similar and edgy...


Blessings... from Texas.


Good story. Thx for the link.

When I was drinking I knew a lot of guys on the street. A few had done time. Some for serious offenses. Others were mentally ill or struggling with addictions, or both. One guy, who went by the name of Spider, used to sell paperbacks on the corner. A local video store kept his "inventory" safe overnight. Another, whom we called Holy Joseph, used pastels and chalk that people gave him to create masterful cityscapes of ancient Jerusalem and Bethlehem on the sides of appliance boxes. So many faces. Every so often I hear that one has died or that another is doing time. One thing I've learned: anyone who thinks homelessness is a free ride is wrong.
