Today was a very good day.
Went out on a date.
It was good. She doesn't mind me living in a van. She's very cool about it.
I am glad.
As we left the Vietnamese place where we had dinner, we came upon a beggar on the street. Even living in my van, I am so blessed. More than that fellow on the street who has nowhere to go. I gave him a bottle of water and we went on our way.
It is amazing how very happy it makes me to have these few possessions. And how lucky I am to have shelter tonight... a warm comfortable bed... a small house to call my own. I am truly happy and content. Even when we measure me and my meager belongings to the world, I still come out part of the 1%.
I have a full tank of gasoline.
Savings in the bank (I can go 3-4 months without earning anything).
A space to call my own.
Clothes to keep me warm.
Food to keep me fed and healthy.
We need so little to keep us happy. This I am discovering each and every day.
I sleep tonight in my little nest warm and cozy from the night air.
At one with the world.
At one with nature.
Good night, America. Sweet dreams to you.
