Street Smarts

P1010340P1010341We’re not big buddies, but I’ve known Shannon for five months. I know about his former car, apartment, girlfriend and the construction job he held for more than a decade. I believe his stories because they never change. Different people survive the streets differently. He credits his success to manners. His biggest $ contributors week in and week out are from beat cops. Have not seen him in three weeks and I wonder what he’s up to or if he’s ok.
