Oh. Really? Those right brains. They definitely don't get numbers some days. Okay, most days.
What the right brain does gets is -- the heart. The meaning. The relevance of what is happening here On the Roof. We are making a difference. We are being made different.
As in, being up here on the roof, even when I had to leave for a couple of hours, has created a difference in my life and in this place.

There are so many out there. Waiting. Opening up. Evolving. So many possibilities to be explored. Sitting up here on the roof, feeling the support of staff and clients and media and the community at large I know. We are not alone. We are all connected.
Being here has connected me to that bigger picture. That place where 'no way' is not a direction to 'not' take, it's the direction that must be taken. It is the opening into more. More of what we want in our world. What we want in our lives and in our communities. No way isn't a sign that says, Keep Out. It's a sign that says, YES! This is the way to more. This is the opening to step into possibility.

the On the Roof Fever!
On Monday morning I arrived on the roof wondering it if would actually work. Could we? Would we? Stay the course? As we enter our last night in the tent I know. There was no way we couldn't. No way we wouldn't go through with it. Because going through with it is the only way to discover what it's all about.
Going through with it is the way to 'it'. That 'it' that says, yes we can because we must bring people in from the streets. We must lead the way so that people can find themselves again on this road called homeless. and in their uncovering themselves, they can find their way back home to where they belong.
