Las Vegas, Nevada

It was another super beautiful day today. In getting started this morning, the only reason I was able to was that I have a self made commitment to be at my usual Sunday spot for two or three hours to pickup any supplies people have for me to share with those living on the streets. And of course I wanted to create some music also. I don't know if I subconsciously set my life up, or God sets it up or maybe its a little of both but, I remember when Boner died my first dog and before Mo... I was on the road and staying with people I did not know and who did not know me. I had to keep going as I had no choice. I remember going to my first host house after he died with people who had no idea what he meant for me and our connection, what he meant for the Traveling Piano. I just had to keep going with what was. This morning it felt the same. br>

I had to keep going and do what I do because these commitments were set up and I could not let people down who might bring supplies. It is like I live in spite of myself sometimes. As it worked out people did bring supplies. I never know if it will happen and do not depend on it. I just show up. Todd brought water, Loretta brought cup cakes, gloves knitted hats and scarfs, Tom dropped off baseball socks, a lot of them. Then we went to my friends Mary, Barbara and Eric to pick up the rest of the tin cans of cookies purchased before Christmas. I was treated to pizza and they gave me fresh baked goodies to take home. I'm getting fat. It is a huge problem. We all just do the best that we can, eh? Mo loves these friends and the two little pups they have. It feels like family. They care for me and about me. I should say... the family I always wanted to have. So, by the time we got home I felt good about the day. Thank God.
