It's cold out there. And on February 20, I'm going to do something about it. Together with thousands of Canadians across the country, I'll be walking and fundraising to support people and families experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger in my community. Please, give generously by clicking the "Donate Now" button above. Thanks!

        I am walking to honour the memory of, Norman Jones, a man who lived on the edge of homelessness and poverty for much of his senior life.  He became a friend of mine in his last years.

       In Santa Monica I worked as a bartender, Norm began coming in to the pub in many layers of old sweaters and jackets. I was pretty hestitant,  seeing this bedraggled, toothless old man. He asked for hot water for his tea bag.  Later on, I learned that he would walk several miles, from a trailer he lived in that had no heat, winter in L.A. has some pretty cold temps. He would take at least 3 different buses to get to the library and then walk a short distance to the pub. He developed pneumonia and in his precarious living condition, eventually had to be hospitalized.

       Norman was a gentleman, always, and had a breadth of knowledge and a memory that was simply astounding. He loved art and rugby with equal enthusiasm, was once a player of the game.  He was a Korean War vet and originally from Chicago.  I have two of his paintings.  When I think of him, that he was a son, a brother, a father, a husband and a friend... I will always wish, we, I could have done more for him.
