Things I see…. I saw Jacqueline today, it’s raining out but she’s got a great spot. Gave her $10 bucks… That’s courtesy bike parking, not courtesy sleeping! He was quickly moved along…. I have no idea what this guy is on about…. Charlie refers to himself as a ‘happy drunk’. I see you… Coming through, look out! This guy can really motor with this thing. This is George. He lost his legs last year to diabetes. I often share some of my pot with him. He likes strong Indicas… Notice the Trump comment on the wall…. 🙂 I saw George today & laid a little ganja on him… Sharing happiness….. Homeless is rampant these days… Homeless guy passing the time…. Homeless & on the move with everything he owns…. Time for a flower from my front yard. Dreaming of home…. Warming up the toes…. Homeless & company…. I see him everyday when I get off the subway… This is where Jacqueline sleeps. She was in a homeless shelter but left because of all the bed bugs… Time for another flower…. Homeless man enjoying his morning coffee… This poor guy can be found @ work every day @ Granville & Pender St. Off to make some recycling $$$… Vancouver & the World needs a lot more of this… Happy Canada Day from my back porch. Grateful to have a roof over my head, but for how long??? This poor guy has to empty his urine sack in a street drain because of a lack of public washrooms. Vancouver, BC. Someone’s actually reading a book? Canada Line, Vancouver, B.C. No comment! Enjoying the warm summer rays….. I often see this little cutie in the hood…. Broadway St, Vancouver, BC. Nobody notices anymore….. Getting things done on Commercial Drive. Must be lunch time! Come eat with me…. Time to meditate. Old age centre across from my office in Vancouver. bc. PULL YOUR FUCKING PANTS UP!!! Birks Jewellers, where people with money shop… Government office, Vancouver, BC. And the Tiddley Cove Morris group played on….

I’ll be visiting friends in Vancouver, BC 7/22-24. My first time. Actually staying in New Westminster though. I’m looking forward to it.

You do really good work, Daniel. Just wish the “establishment” wanted to be reminded of our reality in our streets, and you would be justly rewarded. As it is, they want to keep their eyes closed. Keep up your clear seeing!
Thanks Tom, I appreciate your thoughts.
GREAT AS USUAL, WHAT AN EYE FOR HUMAN NATURE
That Hal, I appreciate it.
Nice work, Daniel. What are you doing lately?
Just trying to survive & keep sane. You still in Toronto?
Hi Daniel, just noticed your message. Retired now, moved to Owen Sound, Ontario. 3 hours north of TO. Do not know anyone here and live alone. No family. I like the countryside and lakes.
Very difficult to make friends in this small city. I go for regular old friend visits in Toronto/Mississauga to stay sane.
Since I am introverted at the best of times, am doing quite well over all.
Homelessness is a worsening problem everywhere. You appear to have made it your mission to bring the people affected to light. I remember your work from decades ago.
Thanks for writing. I am on Facebook.
Cheers 🥂 to an interesting 2022.
