We met at the corner of Haight and Fillmore. I bought a Street Sheet from him. Around the corner on Fillmore, some young guys were painting a new mural on the wall, right next to where we stood. There were buckets of paint and tarps all around. “They’re painting my room,” he said. He pointed to the sidewalk. “That’s my living room.”

Wishing everyone a peaceful and compassionate holiday season. If you can give a little, give.

    This is so simple, and so dignified. Thanks for sharing the story and the photo.
