  • This is Mark. He is homeless. He is a deep thinker and always has interesting things to say.

    Today was a simple thought. Mark came by the office today to say, "I think today is going to be a good day, hoping to get some hot chocolate and scrambled eggs."

    I showed him the box of donations that had arrived from a woman in Bainbridge Island, to see if he needed anything. He picked out this hat, he loves hats, has a new one on nearly every time I see him.

    As he was leaving he said, "This hat will make me feel a whole lot better when I ...lay my little head down."
