Day 109

Emily - Never really liked showers. I realize they are important but they take away from my evenings. And don't even ask me to shower in the morning because then I'll just look at you like you're crazy.

Jeanine - "Homeless"

Driving to work today I was thinking about spring cleaning and purging stuff when I came upon this sight and was struck by the fact that he was laying there with all of his worldly possessions in a grocery cart.  It got me thinking about our "need" for stuff and the "needy"...let's just say I had an uncomfortable day.  I felt a little uncomfortable taking this photo (and about 10 others like it)...but it really spoke to me so I tried to do it as surreptitiously as I could.  At the end of the day...he was still there - awake and organizing his stuff.  I'm not kidding.


  1. Jeanine,

    What a powerful image. Makes me wonder what 'stuff' he considers important to keep with him. Thank you for posting this.

    And thanks for visiting my blog. I'm looking forward to being one of your followers...it is so cool that you and your daughter are doing this together!

  2. i totally understand the shower thing, don't you wish there was a "be clean" button on our bodies? 8)
