prized possession : nothing
“I put more value on people than I put value on things,” Daniel puts it plain and simple, situated on a bench with a few friends. The thirty-six year old from Missouri has been homeless off and on for close to two decades. “I’ve never been able to keep a job or hold a place. Sometimes its hard, sometimes its easy,” he confesses, with a seemingly blasé shrug of his shoulders.
Prized Possession: “Nothing.” Materialism doesn’t seduce Daniel in the slightest. He is clear about why. “Things go away. People always have the potential to change the things around you, while a material possession isn’t going to say anything. Nothing. I don’t have to worry about my things because all I have is my bare necessities.” minimalist Daniel explains.
