Went Christmas shopping this morning.
The best gift I found was dropping a dollar or two in the tin cans that various street people put out. They were well-bundled against the cold and warm enough to offer some small conversation.
The stores, by contrast, were just full of cold stuff that, with the exception of a small but beautiful-sounding gong, numbed my nerve endings.
Time for a nap.
Did you know that street beggars in Toronto , New York and other major cities where its cold make upwards of 150 per day if there lazy and more like between 500-1000 per day . Especially if it cold and it's Christmas . Now doesn't that make you feel warm all over Lol...AnitaReplyDelete
Yes I am aware of all that ... and still feel better giving it to them than paying for some dust-gathering bauble.ReplyDelete
To anyone in Cambridge, Mass., around Harvard Square: If you see Carrie, the Homeless Vegetarian girl who regularly begs there, please give her a dollar, and wish her a Merry Christmas from me. Thanks, and Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
