I saw a four-foot man pushing a grocery cart. The cart contained three large bags of cans and bottles. The top bag was at least four feet over the man's head. I saw two tents pitched on a sidewalk outside a Buddhist temple/retreat center in SE Portland. An elderly Asian man was sweeping a circular flagstone paths that ran through a series of statues. An iron fence separated the temple and the tents. The gate to the temple was open. I wondered if the Temple administered to the homeless people living outside their property. How could they not? Or maybe they were sick of it all. I wanted to stop and investigate but there was no place to park. I made a mental note to return.
