    It's highly readable and approachable (as you'd expect from an English-teaching diarist). It's written with great compassion and humor. Thanks, Freeway Blogger, Susan Gardner, and Kos Media!

    Please folks, read the book and send the link around. It's not too lengthy (novella length?) and it's certainly not costly. As the author notes at the end, even if the specific activity that he engaged in may no longer be practical or safe, the idea might inspire a similarly simple and elegant way to put a dent in the misery of the impoverished.

    Even in non-freezing California, I know that someone will be holding a sign at the foot of the offramp that I take to go to Whole f'n Paycheck. I have coats and blankets that I rarely use and I'm going to put some in my car and look for people who will make far better use of them than I do.

    It is, quite literally, the least I can do to help alleviate someone's misery.

      at Amazon, it could really help!

      It's such a great tale, and I'm proud to be part of bringing it to a wider circle.

        If someone who has reviewing privileges on amazon wants to copy and paste my comment, you have my permission to use my words. I'm happy to help spread the word.

        Thanks for your work in bringing this wonderful story to life!
