This is my friend Matthew or"Coal'Myn" (@coalmyn2) - a talented music producer and artist. He is also currently homeless in Seattle. We've been in touch throughout the 4 years since I've last seen him so I knew he had lost his job and has been homeless for a little over a year. I have to admit though that I did not stop to put myself into his world and truly imagine what it would be like to be without the things I take for granted every day. Sitting with him for a few hours over the weekend while I was visiting Seattle changed all of that.
Here was a man struggling against unimaginable mental, physical, economic, and social forces who laughed with me, shared ideas and plans he's excited about, and despite all odds seemingly being against him, was hopeful and showed perseverance. Those few hours were the most free I’ve felt in a long time - no social conditioning, judgement, or self consciousness, just raw “beingness” with a fellow human. No one deserves to be discarded and forgotten by a society with the means to abundantly support everyone.
Coal has never asked me for anything, but I feel compelled to try and help a friend and genuine good person who is whole heartedly trying to get back up after being knocked down. His sign says it best: “Normal, highly intelligent, and sober homeless man in need of a means of returning to work and getting my life back on track… Nobody in their right mind deserves to be incapable of getting proper footing in society… My being here is not a byproduct of laziness but one of financial hardship. This is harder than it looks and I cannot stand this state of existence." While I was living in the Bay Area we did an EP together called "iGentsia" which can be found at soundcloud.com/igentsiamusic The download is free, but you can also pay what you want through a donation link. All donations will be going directly to support Coal. In addition, I've setup a gofundme (link in bio) where you can donate as well. Your thoughts and good energy matter too so I hope everyone will take some time to practice gratitude today and tell someone you care about them!
