Eugene (based on a true story)

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 14:59

It is interesting what we see when we try to see each other? To be a person do we need other people. Is what we are made up of what we do, and what we do for others? Do we become a better species when we lift each other up? Why is it some people see a world full of human beings, and others only see themselves. Hugs

Let me make things clear right from the get-go. I’m not a believer.

I don’t believe in supernatural geezers with unkempt beards and such, even though I deeply respect religious liberty. Even if you’re a passionate parishioner of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and wear a colander instead of a hat, I promise that as long as you don’t try to hang spaghetti from my ears, I’m completely tolerant.

Well… actually, I don’t know why I started with this declaration. I wanted to tell you something quite different. I wanted to tell you about Eugene.


I noticed him when I was going to my yoga class. I normally wouldn’t have paid attention to yet another beggar on the street if he hadn’t been busy with a pretty unusual thing.

Now, you could say, “Tati, what’s so unusual about needlework? Embroidery is no big deal.” Yes…

  1. I do hope she stopped at Eugene’s spot to thank him as it was a nice gesture of his in return for her’s. He might have sold that piece of work and funded a night in a hostel or a few hot meals.

    • Hello David. My take of the story was that he either disappeared or she did not see him again. The girlfriend brought it to her. That makes me think he was not there anymore. I don’t know, just the feeling I got. Hugs
