Homelessness is a huge problem. It breaks my heart to see the homeless camps all over Portland.
What is home?
To quote 5th grader Wynn from Brentwood Bay, British Columbia, runner-up in the Habitat for Humanity Canada Meaning of Home Writing Contest:
Home means an enjoyable, happy place where you can live, laugh and learn. It’s somewhere where you are loved, respected, and cared for. It's where your memories lie. When you look at it from the outside, home is just a house. A building. Maybe a yard. But on the inside, it’s a lot more than wood and bricks. The saying “Home is where the heart is” says it all.
Pastures of Plenty features songs about home from 6 to 7 pm, with songs by Stephen Foster, Richard Thompson, Guy Clark, Woody Guthrie, James Keelaghan, and more.
We are fortunate to have a home here on KBOO for great folk music on the weekday Folkstrip from 530 to 7 am every Monday through Friday.
Thanks for dropping in on our KBOO home.
