I'm going to start volunteering for Street Sense, the local homeless paper here in DC. I figure I could contribute my current skills (writing/editing/fundraising) and build on my other interests (photography and photojournalism). The office is housed in an Episcopalian church complex downtown, which also hosts, curiously, a Muslim prayer room. I haven't worked with a domestic organization, let alone the homeless population, so I'm looking forward to the experience. The atmosphere seems pretty laid-back and since I don't plan to be involved in the actual layout or final edits, I probably don't have to be around for the pre-publication push.
I love this weather. Sunny and in the 70s during the day, and in the 50s-60s at night. Maybe tomorrow I'll dig out our winter stuff. I arranged our limited Halloween decor today. Obviously we are not as hardcore as the neighbors.
