An older, formerly homeless dude who’s been offering some great advice and insights for the Decentralized Community project. He’s an intelligent, funny and creative guy, with some very novel ideas for helping people out.. and he even found me a boombox!
Like most of the homeless/formerly homeless people I’ve spoken with, he’s not concerned with material wealth, his primary desire being to give of himself and help others who are struggling with homelessness and addiction…
I have a strong feeling he’s going to be an instrumental member of the Decentralized Community.
People who’ve been to hell and back, lost everything and stared down death generally seem to have also dispensed with the pretensions and artificiality which so pervade mainstream society. They are far more authentic, interesting, loyal and open than those one would normally brush elbows with.
These people are the genuine article and spending some time with them can be a very refreshing and rewarding experience.
I wholeheartedly recommend it.
