I still don’t know what to think of this town. Amazing? That’s one word that comes to mind. Cold is another more realistic one at present.
Father left me this huge lot. It’s very big… it has this hill from where I can see most of the town. It looks amazing covered in snow.
That’s basically what it is… just a big empty space full of snow.
It’s not all so bad. The neighbors are very welcoming. Sometimes.
There is also a coffee shop downtown which is the place to go for free food. They get very busy and only have one person serving the counter.
People come and go and don’t mind you. That is nice. But it would be nice too to meet new people.
I guess father was right. In today’s world, people are like mindless robots. Not that I have ever known another world…

Yesterday was a tough day. There was a snow storm and it was hard to find food and shelter. Thank God there is a GYM opened 24 hours.
I took a shower – much needed – found some clothes “forgotten” in a closet;
had some snacks from the fridge sitting in the cafeteria overlooking the city, it was peaceful.
and I even got to sleep for a bit by the water… well, technically it’s just a pool but who cares. One can dream!
At the coffee place today the atmosphere was different. There were more people than usual.
All very young people as well, all chatting and being joyful.
I thought I was going to puke. You have to understand, I am not a hater of society. But society hates people like me.
I caught a glimpse of his eyes
The most beautiful eyes I have ever seen in my years of existence... Okay, that’s not much to say.
How it happened, like in movies;
I could only see part of his face from where I was sitting,
Then he moved, but a man blocked my view,
Okay…so the man moved away, and there he was, this barista…
He turned to look at me and smiled.
Before I knew it he was gone. Just like that.
I’m going back to the coffee shop tomorrow. I have to find him again. I don’t know why I feel this connection to this stranger, but I have to find out.
For now I’ll just enjoy my new shelter of choice:
The Park in Willow Creek.
The cold winter has never been so warm before.
