I consider myself one of the ‘Lucky Ones’…
Though ‘my Pony’ may be ‘lame’, and my ability to do for myself is more than halved because of it, this Winter, I’m not sleeping under a Tree, as I was the last. I may not have Hot water, but I have plenty of Clean water.
I may not have Friends, but I Know a few Gentle Strangers.
My lame Pony is parked in a Safe place under a long carport with one electrical outlet. There I can have my refrigerator and use my crockpot. My Pony serves me, in place of my Freedom, now as my kitchen, pantry and apartment.
This is where I Wait with (what remains of My 8-acre Farm where I had 100+ Critters for over a decade) my 5 ducks. 3 show birds, and 3 Professional, working Farm Katz.
I consider myself very Lucky to have This Much, as I’m Forced to Wait, to be ReUnited with my Life again.
Because I happen to sleep where my truck is parked, I am Blessed with the opportunity to have not only a Food Bank 10 miles down the pavement, but a second Resource, nearby, as well. For me it is the Emerald City at the end of the Rainbow.
There’s a small, hard-to-notice building that you drive by every day. On one end of it is the North Mason Resource Center and on the other end of it is the Community Food Pantry. And in this Land is where I find my Gentle Strangers.
I first came here a few months back, after I was offered a place to call ‘Home’ at ChickenHawk’s Kabin on the Isle. I had been made Honorary Member of Olde Vulture’s Tribe there, and while I still had access to a vehicle, I took my New Brother’s to the aforementioned Food Bank. That place is a Nirvana for the Hungry, by it’s own right, as well, but the NMRC is so much more to me.
As it is at the official Food Bank another 2 or 3 miles down the road, you can get food here as well, but only once a week. So for me, “shopping day & Hygiene day” is like Christmas.
