72/365 Rough Weather

It doesn’t look rough does it? But it was starting to blow, and the water was falling. We decided to take a breather in Cafe 1m with a hot chocolate and an oatcake, very nice.

As i write this, at about 10PM, it’s blowing quite a bit outside, and still chucking it down. When we were out walking, we had decent raincoats and it really wasn’t too cold, but there again we were only out for an hour.

One of the topics of discussion we had was about the rough sleepers. They seem to be growing in number. There are three or four regulars on Gosport High Street now. I must admit I do feel sorry for them but it oversimplifies things to ask; do they have to be there? Probably their view is they have no choice. The council have set up a number of “pods” for them, are they full? i don’t know. GBC also appear to have in place a number of other actions, vouchers for meals, bus vouchers, sleeping bags, hats & gloves.

I can’t understand why they do this, but it has always been a fear of mine that I could end up like them. No reason to think that I would. but you hear stories where things have gone wrong, and this is where they end up.

I help by buying food – do I need to given the above? Perhaps not, but if they accept the offer, then presumably they need it. I never give cash. These days, with the covid situation it is now very unusual for me to carry any. It makes it that much easier to say no when they ask.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
