Lent Day 5



This is what happens when I read the paper and go to a swanky resort. Appalling housing prices, huge houses, mostly designed as second homes, and unemployment over 10 percent. Some of us are cold and stuck out in the rain. It's just wrong. Sadly, I don't have a solution.

Me, either
No solution, just that tensing in my gut every time I read headlines or see the homeless people on my street, like Sharon or Richard, who I talk to often but don't know how to get out of their situations. In the meantime, I, too, have my little luxuries, like the amazing free feast at a restaurant soon to open last Friday. As I sipped Spanish wines, I reveled in the European-like three hour meal with dear friends... and also at the constant dichotomy of beauty and agony in the world.
