Near where I lived in Paris some years ago there was a frequent food kitchen that opened on the square. As I used to walk the dog down there I got into conversation with some of the recipients. I mused to myself that they all seemed to have the intellect, ambition and ability to be a commercial pilot as myself, (or similar better job) but a series of misfortunes had hit them in rapid sequence.

Depression was a common denominator, as causal or correlation to their predicament.

Paris treats its SDF with a degree of respect and I learned from that. My life could easily have taken a turn for the destitute, but I remained healthy and most importantly lucky.
