I've thought long and hard about the post that will sit on top of this blog for a few weeks ... and then I found this beautiful heartbreaking photo of a homeless man and his dog. The photographer, Kirsten, explained this photo on Feeding Pets of the Homeless. If I lived in Toronto I'd probably try to find this guy or at least buy him some food since his picture is finding its way around. I usually don't give change directly to homeless people - I'd rather go through one of the services that help them - but I wanted to give him something this time because I took his picture...only he and the dog looked so peaceful and comfortable that I couldn't bear to wake them up by putting money in the hat. Kind of ironic.
