Watermelon at "the corner"

My head is still reeling with thoughts, impressions and experiences I've enjoyed the past two weeks at "the corner" of Malcolm X and Dawson Street.

Every week magic manages to break out on the porch of the abandoned house that's nestled under a big shade tree.

This afternoon I engaged in amazing conversations.  More on that in future posts.

But what made today special was the watermelon we shared.

Actually, a woman who came by carrying a big watermelon shared it with all of us.

It seemed like Jesus feeding the 5,000 with the loaves and fishes!  That watermelon went a long way.  Everyone was invited to take a piece and everyone did.

I suppose you would need to be present to fully appreciate the dynamic of what happened.

So beautiful.

So full of peace.

So about hope.

More later.

Hmmm. . . .what if homeless persons owned a can, plastic, paper recycling business?  As I say, more to come.

People are amazing.
