possession : dog "Rosie"
Straightforward, simple, and succinct Thomas says little about his day to day life. Had his friend not asked for change, their situation would not have been apparent to city strangers. Dressed in a clean black coat, while listening to another friend play music on a free piano downtown, Thomas sat stoically. Young, creative, and mysterious, he didn’t give much weight to being homeless. “Living on the streets is like anything else I guess. Just a little harder.” He usually sleeps in a camp shared with others.
Prized Possession: Rosie, his 18-month year old black lab. The beautiful one and a half year old black lab provides Thomas with consistency, love, and companionship. “She is always here, that is why she is my most valued.”
