i made the day of a very shabby man on the bus by being the only person to actually talk to him instead of ignoring him. a long time ago, he played viola; he knew a lot about music theory and classical music, and clearly deeply cared about it. we talked for the entire ride. it was the strangest and most unexpected thing i've done recently. i was nowhere near comfortable talking to a random person – it's far outside my typical comfort zone – but he needed to talk, and i was glad to listen.

this one is from him. may he find peace somewhere.

@er1n when I can, I go out with some other local radicals and feed homeless people. I'm not saying this as a brag, but as background to this:

We're all human, even the poorest among us. We all have the ability to change the course of someone's day, maybe even their life. A conversation won't hurt, and it might mean the world to someone else.
