The Pursuit of Happyness

No misspelling here, it appears like this on the book and the movie. The Pursuit of Happyness is a story about Chris Gardner who went from rags to riches. Yea here is a guy who was living in shelters and homeless who achieved the dreams that many Americans have. The movie stars Will Smith set to be released on 12/15 looks to be a top box office hit during the holidays. (The Pursuit of Happyness trailer)The Book came out in June and is the top of the many readers must read list.

Yea, I know its late but having a hard time sleeping tonight. My mind is racing 5000 mph about what I need to do and surfing on the net soothes it. Me, I don't expect to be like Chris Gardner, but the riches I may see is bringing happyness to others who are homeless also. I spent some time tonight reading some blogs and news articles, it sure is sad to see that it takes natural disasters, new residential areas, new parks or malls to bring the homeless to the forefront. Most people just put on the blinders and go about their own merry way.

I've also been working on my website developing skills tonight. It is something that I've taken an interest in during the last few years along with the telecom industry. I see a few guys who are also homeless hanging around at the university, but most only use the Internet for games or movies. Man, what a waste. During the past couple of months they cracked down on them, so I no longer see them using the computers. I hope to put together a network of telecom sites by the end of January if that is what God has planned for me.

Well I've hit the wall and its time to wander up the mountain to camp. Oh yea, I also emailed a local outdoor gear company asking for a shelter (bivy or tent) donation so I may stay outside during the next couple of months. Hey it doesn't hurt to ask. Right?

Good-night and God Bless

I've got camping stuff I no longer use. Do you have any way of receiving mail? General delivery? PO Box? Friend/family?
