Artist's Description

In his city of Redlands
you will find him
without family, or job,
no home to abide
but in brief moments
of conversation
you will see a man
with dignity and pride

*I live in Riverside, CA and it seems in growing
numbers there are many homeless one can
see if one but look. They can be seen standing
on street corners asking for help, gathering in
parks to be near pubic restrooms, or even asking
for change for a cup of coffee at Starbucks.
When the opportunity presents itself, I have
learned to take the time and buy them a cup of
coffee and just sit and chat for a bit; and you know…
each time I do, I am the one who is blessed.

It doesn’t take long before the stories come out
and the appreciation of a listening ear is expressed.
I find that most are sensitive, wonderful human
beings simply caught between a rock and a hard
place, and slowly, bit by bit losing self esteem due
to apathy by most that cross their path. I have found
that it is the lack of fellow human contact, the need
of simple conversation, or a genuine smile directed
their way that is most desired in their lives. The smiles
I see and the excitement in their eyes when engaging
in a brief fellowship brings humbling warmth to me as
well as a needed joy to them.

It was Mother Teresa who said;
“There is more hunger for love and appreciation
in the world, than for bread.

It is true.
