Jeebus Mary and Joseph!!!!
Reality is too much with me right now.
I had to stop at my favourite crack stop, "20 hour Grocery" today to call an ambulance on some girl doing the crack dance on the street in front of the thrift store. It was really upsetting. To see someone jerking and spazzing and not being aware of how vulnerable they are. Especially a young woman on Hastings street, as we watch the trial of that disgusting pig farm murderer on the news every night. It would be pretty easy to just throw her into a van. Especially when she's not even in control of her own body. It's not even a week since that last woman was murdered up by city hall. It's too much. I need a damn vacation from the neighbourhood.
Fortunately, we have an outing to go to this evening. Our buddy gave us a couple of passes to the Brian Jungen opening tonight. He's fantastic, check out the write up, he makes fantastic art out of really symbolic everyday objects. It's gonna be nuts though, 'cause we're leaving the toddler to run wild with my brother.
Pray for him.
