Moment of horror.

I lost my wifi hotspot card today. It was more like an hour of horror.

I was panicking. I tore the camper about looking for it.
It was under the battery.

This made me think about how attached I am to my connection to the world.

I think that perhaps my Internet connection is what keeps me in the world of the non-homeless. It’s what keeps me from forgetting to wash, keeps my vocabulary intact instead of sliding into slang, keeps me moving rather than finding a hidden nook and never coming out again.

    I HAVE done the same thing. Sometimes I wonder if I could put it on a chain like guys do with their wallets.

    Everybody needs community. It is a requirement for health.

    Obviously, there are different kinds of communities. As “individual” as we all believe ourselves to be, we grow to reflect the communities we join more than we influence them. Rainfall into the ocean doesn’t turn the saline fresh; new recruits don’t turn soldiers into civilian teenagers.

    Adults are more aware of this than kids, and more likely to understand the concept of “chosen family.” I hope we are — and remain — part of yours.

    Because your company improves us.
