It's getting cold here and I want to offer the help I can, here is a hand.|
Sometimes we want to help and we don't know how and this is a start.
If you don't live in michigan, then google search warming centers in your area.
If you have specific problems and you know what they are, there may be support groups to help you.
If you have specific problems and you don't know what they are keep a log book, and do some introspection if possible.
That and some problems are general problems they are good to create businesses or new formulation of community engagement around.
If you need help that I can help you with that does not hurt me or people I love, I will be there for you.
If you need someone to talk to I will listen.
Your friend Luminosity
