No More Van

I am not living in my van anymore. After almost a year of living out of the van, one of close relatives offered to have me come and stay with them. It was such a relief to be offered shelter. I didn't care about sleeping on someone else's couch. I had after all, slept on the floor of my Aerostar for almost a year.

I kept two sleeping bags and six flannel blankets as well as two pillows. I remember dreaming of having my own place while the temperatures were well below zero. As long as I kept the blankets in place and had my head beneath them, I was warm.

Believe it or not, I was warm.
