“It’s okay to be homeless,” he told me with dripping wet hair in the midnight rain, his shoulders covered with a moving blanket.

His words were similar to an alcoholic saying, “One day at a time.”

Following his cue while handing him a new sleeping bag I said, “It is okay to be homeless… Some travel the world while homeless.”
