I Met Jay at the Pearl St. Cafe Soup kitchen in Framingham
Hi my name is Marshall.
Welcome! Identify Society is the Vlog spot for my projects.
Each project addresses a culture set in society.
Homeless 366, the first project, is a leap year long deep dive into Homelessness, Mental Illness, and addiction in the streets of Massachusetts.
With each project I Identify as the group I immerse myself in, which means I totally take up the role.
The essence of our individual and collective being has deep roots. We are all remarkably similar, with about 99.9% likeness to anyone else. We think others are different when they are not. Basically all people eat, sleep, move around, think, feel, talk, have sex, do or create things with their hands, use tools, and collect stuff.
Identify Society experiences different walks of life, and educates others on how people live in different circles. Circles they most likely will never get to be a part of or understand.
The Goal is to bring us closer together and increase compassion through understanding.
Each project will include interviews, recording, writing, documenting, pictures, etc… in Chronological order over multiple platforms. I will Write a Book and try to create a documentary for each project.
Welcome Identify Society, I hope you enjoy the ride.
While doing this work I am unemployed and have no income. Donations are welcome.

8:00 a.m. I woke up at my friend’s house. She wakes up shortly after me. I have oatmeal for breakfast. We spent some time talking and I got my stuff ready to drive out to Lorian’s house in Rockport. We are donating items today to the homeless in Lynn and Salem. We have socks, gloves,…
7:00 a.m. I woke up at my friend’s house. It’s handball day. My clothes have been washed. My gear is pretty much settled. One thing I want to accomplish today is clean out my cars and prepare my cars more for travel in the winter and camping outside. 8:30 a.m. I drive out to Saugus…
5:30 a.m. I woke up. I hear a large animal running around outside my camp. I’m guessing it’s a coyote, a big one, running through the thicket. I can hear it snapping twigs. I can hear it running really fast and stopping. The coyote knows I’m there. It can smell me, it definitely smells my…
