Jeez, how the heck did people survive way back when, in the dark ages, when there was no web, no smart phones, no iPods or iPads…

True confessions: I do know some folks who can only access the web at the public library. Yeah, the library. When’s the last time you’ve been? The library with all the print-on-paper books, DVDs, music tapes and CDs you can check out–same kinda stuff you can probably read, watch and listen to right on the web.

These days, most libraries have an ebooks collection although last time I checked it wasn’t a heck of a lot.

Lots of homeless go to the library–most of them are the ones using the library computers to get online an hour at a time.

Dunno why it seems funny to see the homeless connected with cell phones. Sometimes you just don’t feel it for some folks when stuff happens but other times you can’t help but see how thin a line it is for the folks who can’t help that they got on that track and it sure helps that family, friends, docs, social workers, prospective employers, who-the-heck-ever, can get in touch with the housing-challenged and vice versa…

More E.M. Sanchez photos can be found on the 2nd floor of Caffe Bianco, 39 Sutter St, San Francisco, CA, off of Market; the pieces have been hanging there a little over a year so the yelper’s review of the art from 2007 doesn’t apply…
