#SuperheroSleepOut Update

On Thursday, November 16,2017, my chaplin Brother Al Mims and I slept outside Spotted Cat Food and Spirits as part of Covenant House annual Sleep Out America fundraiser

Two hundred ninety five dollars was donated to Covenant House from my Sleep Out America page and I thank all donors!

Brother Richard, a homeless gent I assist, checked on us through the night and Lucci, another member of our group, joined us a couple hours before sunrise.

I enjoyed the Sleep Out and may incorporate it into my ongoing outreach efforts. We hit the streets and the internet with our advocacy and may need to sleep out more often too.

My #HeroWeen2017 Fish Fry & Costume Party Tuesday night was successful.

Thank you to Spotted Cat Food and Spirits for the venue and all who gave canned goods and clothing for the value.

New Hope Baptist Church in New Orleans Central City area received what we collected for distribution through their food bank and clothing closet.

Sharing supply is the fantastic flipside of creating safety.

Keep Swinging at Hurricane Harvey

The Houston area is flooded on a scale that boggled the mind. Fortunately, people near and far are mobilizing to assist in rescue and recovery.

I gave a $ Super Power donation today to Terence Winkler, a friend’s brother, who lost everything, along with the eight children and four adults with him.

Here’s the link: https://www.paypal.me/twinkler1

He is a generous man richly deserving of generosity in return. I strongly support giving to the givers because their needs are so often overlooked.

Let’s keeping swinging at the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey!

#Super Comes in All Colors.

The above image ( my words and Justin Tyme’s digital magic ) is our response to the Charlottesville, VA., race riot.

As advocates inspired by heroic fiction, we shared a picture that seeks to bridge a widening divide in our body politic.

Some have been amused by it and others welcome it as affirmation of their own battered commitment to unity.

I define ” super ” as realizing ones unique potential and helping others. It transcends indentitarianism’s narrow focus on one group. We want the exceptional recognized in all colors and social categories.

When a couple of guys who call themselves ” Cap Black ” and the ” Redneck Superman ” tell America not to overlook who can be exceptional, people do a double take.

Two Cats & a Community.

#CapBlackRLSH pose with the Landlord

My ” sidewalk office ” near the automatic doors of the New Orleans Healing Center is an active one. While watching out for area neerdowells and opportunities to assist patrons, I’ve made the acquaintance of a pair of tuxedo cats, affectionately nick named the Landlord and Junior.

Junior was so dubbed by Sam, a great human and benefactor to neighborhood cats and dogs.

The cats graciously allow me to perform security and greeter roles in what is essentially their domain. In return, I ( along with their other humans ) feed them from the Centers food co-op, which sells organic cat and dog food.

I gave the larger feline the Landlord nickname because of her loud demand to be fed, up to and including following me to the Co-op’s doors, should breakfast not be served fast enough.

The Landlord and Junior enjoy daily affection and tasty tribute, as befits their high calling as community cats.

Patrons look forward to seeing them luxuriously sprawled on the sidewalk and honestly, the pair make my day as safety creator for the building.

I thought I’d share a few words about the Landlord and Junior, two cats who have a warm place in many hearts within the New Orleans Healing Center community.
