The Places My March 25th Dream Took Me
Updated: Mar 17, 2020
I've never been a Vegas girl. I went there once and gambled with $20 and ended up with a tidy sum to buy a high-end purse. Once I made that sum, I went and bought it. I was basically done with Vegas.
But I was making plans to go back, this time to look in enormous sewage drains, in North Las Vegas where the homeless congregate, and all the places that feed this endless tide of lost human potential: the Salvation Army, the Veteran's center, and of course the north Vegas library where the homeless come out from the heat and charge their phones and read and relax. So, I sat with them. I hauled out my embroidery and sat and waited.
