Just thinking out loud
Well, for many years now I have been told my brain is the size of a pea, a very intelligent pea I must add but as I get to thinking about things like my life and people around me I get to thinking how strange things really are. I mean here we are in 2006 and still we could write a novel in the Charles Dickens vein about homelessness, drug addiction and of course there are so many fagins in this country. Well, that's what I call most drug dealers these days. There are so many books written about how people become homeless, it's causes. Drug addiction and alcohol. I'm always asking the question how come? Plus we have so many charities that all do good things yet we still see all these on a large scale. So what is the fundamental problem? How do we cure this cycle of life some people fall into and become so trapped. Is it that once we leave the core of main stream society we become it's invisible and unwanted members? Is it that once you have been there, no one wants you back? Is this why so many people have to fight to become useful members of society again? Is it because of the stigma that stays with them no matter what? These are the sort of questions I am now asking myself along with should I wash my hands before or after meeting with politicians?
