590 – On the street

Rough sleepers disturb me. Not the person, but the fact that they are sleeping on the week. I’m not going to go in to the reasons as to why it happens because each story is different.

There is a group of people who look as though they sleep rough regularly. One in particular who sleeps on the promenade. The other morning I saw him walking around the high street picking things up. I stopped and spoke to him, he told me that he was picking up cigarette butts to put together a smoke. When I went for my lunchtime walk I bought a packet of tobacco (it included papers) and a lighter and gave it to him when I saw him next. There’s another chap, who usually takes up residence near the ferry ticket office. I’ve bought him food on occasion. Am I doing the right thing?

I think if I had the time, I would volunteer to work with a charity, there are several in Gosport. Is my saying “if I had the time” an excuse for not getting involved? It is partly, I relish my time off, and resent things eating into it. Sadly that is increasingly applying to RAYNET, and even HDARC. It’s me being a a bit selfish I’m afraid.

Is it a case me doing a little thing that appeases the guilt in my mind that I should be doing more. Perhaps I will do so – one day.

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.
