I woke up at the church. LA leaves before me. I slept good last night. I head over to St Francis for breakfast. It must be trash day, there’s a heapnof black trash bags across the street from St. Francis House. I begin to think of the plight of the homeless.
6:50 a.m. I walk into St Francis house,.go through security, and have hash browns and mini omelettes for breakfast. I hang around St Francis house for a while and work on the blog.
9:00 a.m. Head over to Boston library to meet up with LA and we hang out there until it’s lunch time at St Francis house. There are a few Homeless that live around the library. GBH films a show at a cafe in the library. Below that is what a bike ends up looking like when you leave it locked up overnight.
11:30 a.m. We head back over to St Francis house for lunch. Again I hang in the lunch room a little bit later. I’m trying to decide if I’m going to stay in Boston, or go to the Lynn shelter to sleep tonight.
1:30 p.m. I decide that I’m going to hang around Boston for the night, and take the train in to Lynn in the morning to play handball. LA and I hang around the Commons.
3:00 p.m. there’s supposed to be a food activist that comes and serves food at 3pm. We wait around and by 4pm the food activist hasn’t shown. I asked some of the other homeless men what time he usually gets there, the homeless man says he arrives around 6 or 7pm. LA wants to get dinner at the Arlington Street Church. I love this place. They put flowers on the tables, and dress everything up, and volunteers serve you. While we’re there a man begins yelling at another man. He claims that the man made racist comments to him. The man yelling seems to be drunk. It causes a big commotion, and the man that is yelling is ushered out by church workers and volunteers. We have chicken, sweet potato, chick peas and salad for dinner. I will regret having such a fibrous dinner later. All in all the dinner is good.
6:50 p.m. LA and I head over to tea entrance on the comments to meet up with food activist. When we get there he’s just packing up. I take some pictures and try to get him for some comments. He says he has to go to South station it doesn’t have time. I tell him I will connect with him later. From there LA and I go to our sleeping spot and set up for the night.
