“Are you Homeless?”

“Are you homeless?” the woman with bald spots over her ears and a thunder cloud of natural hair, asked me.

I was standing in Jack In The Box in Inglewood. I looked down at my outfit. I did look a mess—a comfortable mess though. I had on my worn-looking gym shoes, tights, a somewhat faded but clean African print dress, topped by my freeform dreadlocks, which were thick, but a little fuzzy looking.

I should be embarrassed that I was mistaken for the homeless, but when I write, I get in the zone and become invisible to myself and to my characters whom I’m observing. I am vulnerable when I write, but I am happy as a hummingbird.

I had been on a writing binge at McDonald’s and was experiencing the afterglow that only writers can understand.

“No,” I replied. “Why do you ask? Do I look that bad?” I laughed out loud. I am blessed in that I have a roof over my head, but it’s funny how I can look “throwed away” (my late mother’s old expression) when I’m writing.

“No. You look fine. It’s just you are rolling a suitcase.”

I looked down at my laptop bag. “No, this is a laptop.”

I thought of all the women I see with suitcases walking around LA and Inglewood.

Many are homeless. They sleep in Starbucks and McDonald’s. They sleep on the sidewalks, in homeless camps, and in shelters. They wash up in the public restrooms.

In talking to the woman, I found out she was homeless and looking for food. She gave me the address of a homeless shelter which was helping her. I kept it to hand out to people. (I am still a social worker at heart.) The woman also admitted she had been clean from cocaine for two days. I had a few single dollars on me, so I gave her something. “Buy you something to eat,” I admonished.

I’ve blogged about the homeless before and given statistics.

Today, 1-28-18, in the Sunday Los Angeles Times, there is a new series called “Without a Home” about this ceaseless crisis.

According to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, in 2016, the county’s homeless number rose to 47,00, with 28,000 in the city alone. “This could be the year that we bring the numbers down.”

Can and could. But didn’t, so the newspaper says.

So, what can we do as citizens? There have been millions of dollars and endless political promises about homelessness, but the situation is getting worse. Can you rent out a house and give rooms to the homeless? I believe there is city money available to help to this end.

Just thinking out loud.

The Year 2017 in Review

Dr. Maxine Thompson

http://www.maxinethompson.com

http://www.maxinethompsonbooks.com

On a spiritual level, as human beings, we took so many hits in 2017, we are still reeling. It is hard to stay grounded when you are in a whirlwind of trouble. No sooner than one disaster would hit, and you hadn’t even recovered, another one would barrel down on you, almost crushing you.

Hurricanes and floods in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Puerto Rico. The Florida massacre. The Las Vegas Massacre. Wild fires here in California, which have caused mass evacuations. Now a train derailment in Washington. The looming nuclear threat from North Korea. Then the Biggee: The Tax Cuts. This is just to name a few catastrophes in the U.S. news, which knocked you off your epicenter in 2017. Many of the people who have been affected by the floods and fires are probably still not in their homes. How do they adjust to this new normal? How do we, as human beings, get through these life-changing events without remaining in a perpetual state of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?

Well, for one, I pray. I’ve never prayed so hard. I’m now remembering a song from my late mother’s old church. “I know, I know that prayer changes things.”

There is going to be a shift in consciousness. On a mass level, people are going to start praying. I believe in the power of prayer.

We can do battle with prayer. With God, “All things are possible.” Matthew 19:26. Ask for the direction to take to heal, to recover, to overcome. Matthew 7:7. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

As artists, we write, we paint, we sculpt, we make music. Let us continue to do so. We capture these moments in history in our work. That is our legacy.
