Everyone is a drifter. Even me. And among the faithful, too.

Faithful to what?

Well, to ourselves, to myself, and the difference anyone can make in their own life.

Old
New
Fresh


It's all another day. And today is as old as this moment.


I live in Portland, Oregon now.
I like it more than Santa Cruz.

I do.

I love my life.
All fifty one years of it,
and what may be left.

And thanks.

things change and they don't, huh?

i am in the same physical space, a different physical place and older. so much older.

i bumped into you about 6 years ago, you were living in a town with a santa in it? (my memory is... well, older too) near the coast i think. i spent a couple years in a small beach town, it was good for my soul. the sound of the waves filled my head and pushed out a lot of loose stuff.

i bounced around the forum and the blawg, saw i was a drifter. i probably will remain that, a drifter, but it's good to bump into ya again.

nice site, by the way.

2011 / Re: Tell me how you manage to make ends meet...
« Date written by Father Luke on April 03, 2011, 12:14:42 PM »
In 2010 I was awarded $200 in food stamps, something called an EBT card,
which is used like a credit card, worth up to, in my case, $200.

So, paid income for 2010 was:

$200 - Food Stamps
  x12 - Months in the year
_____
$2,400

PLUS

I got paid $8,831.28 by the State of Oregon to take care of children:



So...

$8,831.28
+
$2,400
_______
$11231.28 - Income before taxes for 2010


I got paid directly from the State, I have to pay my own taxes, etc.
Taxes are looking like about $600 - $800

So...

$8,831.28
+
$2,400
-
$700
_______
$10531.28 - Income after taxes for 2010


There it is.

This is just a place holder for 2011. But I have to tell you? I didn't do well.

Stay tuned.

Mostly it's just you. And me. There are a few who linger, and lurk, but don't participate.
The good stuff will be in 2010 - - as a subscriber you'll be able to see that.
