#poor #poverty #writer #read #thanksgiving #story #homeless #nature #garden #bonsai #book Because I am incapable of making anything edible, I pay a weekly visit to a strip mall in order to buy Philippine food. I noticed an old homeless and very thin Japanese man in a wheelchair. He had lost his foot (there was a dirty sock on the stump) and there were sores on his back. He was not begging. He was just sitting at the corner of a closed Pizza Hut, whispering to himself. l made up my mind to buy him a hot breakfast of rice and pork. He spoke his thanks in a mix of Japanese and English and I wondered where his family was. He also started eating at an alarming speed. So much so, that I told him to slow down and I ran back to the restaurant to get him a soda. But he ignored me and continued eating as fast as he could. I particularly identify with Asian elderly and even more so, when I see them homeless. I am thinking he was afraid someone would take the food from him if he slowed down or possibly he relished the “hot” meal. I went to the bakery and bought him a bag of buns. He also started tearing into it. I had considered taking a pic of him and putting it on FB (to see if perhaps a relative could find him or something) but he objected vehemently. I guess the whole point of this post is .... if you are holiday shopping at your grocers or the dollar store or the mall or even online, why not make a few extra purchases of crackers, bottled water, soup cans with pop-top lids, wet-wipes, some coins (if they want to go to those pay toilets) anything you think will help. Put them in a paper bag and give them to the homeless. (I also add a couple of paperbacks, a pen and a note. How big a difference it would be to that one person.
Words. They come too late.
