There was a movie I saw recently with Samuel L Jackson who played a guy on the streets. But he was an accomplished cellist. He is found and we learn his story. He was I think pretty smart but also mentally ill. For anyone who actually makes that giant leap from 'normal' house dwelling (paying mortgage/rent and or taxes and all the responsibilities that go with it) to street dwelling will find a sense of release and freedom that is not a bad feeling. Having nothing or very little is a lot better than having a bunch of stuff and living under the thumb of the bank or credit card company and spending all your hard earned money just paying back their interest.

Like the shot very much.

If you are referring to the movie, "The Soloist" the actor is Jamie Foxx.
I agree with you Bynx on how liberating it is to not have the undue stress of having things versus having the feeling of freedom and release with little to no worldly possessions.

While that part is true, it gets mighty hungry out there mighty fast. I lived it for over two years. At first it was pretty cool. Then, it got downright COLD, hungry, grubby, well... not nice. By and large, society thinks it has you figured out and thinks all you need to do is get a job. There's a LOT more to it. Trust me.

I agree with ya gjtoth. Its easy enough to fall off the grid. But getting back on is not so easy. And its a LOT mroe than finding a job as you say.
Yah the movie was The Soloist. Thanks.

Agreed about it being a LOT more to it than that. Guess that's why I have been in overkill mode as of late. I have been down that road as well.
