Three Beautiful Things 10/29/09: More Education About Homelessness, Congrats Rob!, Breakthrough

1. Brad and I had a long talk about his homelessness and how not having a home makes him a stranger, a foreigner, in Eugene, the town he has lived in all his life.

2. I saw Rob for a few minutes. It's his last day as a writing tutor. He got a job in the LCC counseling department. It's really great news!

3. Jack made a major breakthrough in thinking about his essay about the loss of one's life plans. It's his first essay, really, ever. He's thirty. Half-assed it through high school. Went to work. Did well. Work is gone. He's at school and he's learning to enjoy thinking in new ways and writing.
