Elaine is a wonderful, caring person who started and for many years served as leadership for the Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets youth advocate. The only one on Seattle's Capitol Hill. Her work is ongoing and she is tireless in her mission to help runaway, throwaway, and homeless youth survive the winters outside and get the services that they desperately need. Please consider helping this year. A few items of warm clothing go a long way in the cold. The pet friendly Christmas dinner and gift giveaway is such a beautiful thing. It's hard to put into words. It makes such a big difference. Such a HUGE difference to so many children, teens, young adults and their pets. It gives hope. And hope saves lives. :)
I was always a little bit of an odd duck...Never really fit in anywhere. Today i realize i'm just an individual. Someone who sings and celebrates his life. Dances and dreams to a different drummer and all that. But growing up i guess i was just lonely. Moved from a small town in rural Idaho to NW Washington at about 16 yo. Sports and books. that was my life.Couldn't adjust to the culture shock of Everett, so i put down my books and picked up my backpack to live the free life of a Rover.... These days I am appreciating and enjoying the Beauty and Magic that surrounds me every single day and trying not to take anything for granted in this gift called "LIFE"..Even in life's greater trials and tribulations, I try to live with Love in my heart, a smile on my face, and a sense of humor. And all these scars on my body and spirit serve as a road-map, detaling the places i've been, and the hardships i've survived. I'm no monk. No Sage or Saint. But every day I heal a little bit more from the wounds of my spirit. And every day, in little ways, I become a better Man. :)
