Yeah – I admit it. When I’m being productive and things are falling into place, I just feel good. I like ticking things off my to-do list.
The last edit/run-through/re-write of the manuscript is going well. I’m pleased. And in the middle of working intensely, I managed to get Abby out for along walk, do laundry, bake cookies, and clean the house.
I also had time to think today – this occurred on my walk.
I thought about what I read today about Finland solving its homeless problem by giving homes to the homeless.
See – that’s so damn logical that for some reason, Canada just hasn’t thought of it. Or the U.S. for all that.
Homeless – give them homes. Well, duh!
What do we do? Oh – the homeless? Maybe counselling. Maybe a bed for the night in a dorm. Maybe tent cities. Maybe round them up and put them in jail.
Here’s the deal: if someone is hungry, you feed them. If someone is sick, give them medicine. If someone is homeless, give them a place to live. All the other stuff – why are they homeless? You figure that out after they feel safe.
Why can’t we do this? What is wrong with us?
End of today’s rant. My silent inner-voice rant extended much farther today. But this is enough for the blog. For now.
