I’m Having a Feast with my Son Tonight

Dawn Thompson

I work as a volunteer for a hospital and take many, many buses. I take the blue bus, the green bus, all of them. I just sit and think and do nothing.

I’m looking forward to dinner with my son tonight. We’re going to have a feast together.

Truthfully, I’m in a homeless shelter right now on Vermont and Beverly. I never in a million years would’ve thought that I’d find myself in a homeless situation. But I’m optimistic. I’m hoping to find some permanent and affordable housing. That’s been the biggest challenge, but I don’t want to consider leaving L.A. just yet.
