The homeless and their style

This post on The Satorialist is really intriguing. When I see a homeless person, I feel confused, sad, angry, and helpless. You want to help them but most of the time, they don't want to be helped. My friend Joe thinks the homeless are actually enlightened because they are not a part of society. Who knows.

There's this old grandma in K-town (Korea town) that in MY opinion has a great sense of style. She made this hat out of some blue material (maybe plastic bags?) that I couldn't stop staring at. I didn't want to take a picture because 1. I didn't want to offend her 2. I don't want kimchi thrown at me (I'm sure she has some stacked away somewhere. No korean doesn't eat kimchi). It just goes to show that Maslow was a little incorrect. Even those who don't have all the basic necesities have a feeling of self-worth, pride, and a sense of style. Or maybe Joe was right, they're just enlightened and above what we believe are important - money.

  1. Hmm, I felt so conflicted reading that Sart post, your commentary does flesh it out a bit more, even if it is about Koreans instead. Cute blog you have here!
