Day 18 of Homelessness
We planned to sleep at DRCOG on the night we held our street protest at their offices but our homeless clients wanted to return to their usual sites as this gives them what little sense of security and normalcy they can glean from habit. I can totally identify as I don't like sleeping anywhere other than my favorite campsite. It's relatively close, it's got plenty of cover and I think it's warmer and dryer than many of the places where I've slept, thanks to the canopy under which I pitch my tent.
It's cold and wet this evening so I think I'm in for an interesting night.
