Second post reblogged….
As a writer, the study of the human condition is always at the front of my mind. I have made it a habit to watch people and listen to their history to find the smallest piece of life I can take from and write about. This in my opinion is what makes for good emotion.
Today, I realized, human nature is on a downward spiral. I watched as a homeless man was left of a back road 15 miles from town just before dark and told it was just a few miles to walk. With the impending 32 degrees after sunset he was set out to find his own way.
I began to realize as I talked to this man that, I am truly blessed. Not just blessed, fortunate. My life could have gone a totally different way. I am thankful that I had the resources to make a life for myself.
