Another homeless Michael

Ran across this blog written by another homeless man named Michael, this on in North Carolina.

English needs some better words than "interesting", "fasinating", "compelling" and so on. They all have far too positive connotations for this situation. And yet, Michael's blog is all of these things.

Merely thinking about homelessness can be emotionally draining. I just got an email from someone cancelling an interview he had previously scheduled with me because he decided he just didn't want to deal with it any more. Too hard.

I know how he feels. I've only been at this four days and I'm already finding myself sometimes wishing I hadn't let this particular genie out of the bottle. I'd be sleeping a lot better at night if I'd never picked up that damn camera. (It's a fact I'm not particularly proud of, but there it is.)
