Being homeless in Venice Beach and winding up in a guest house in North Hollywood wouldn't go into my "trials and tribulations" file, but I'll bet it would be a good read.

My homelessness was in Oceanside, California (another place it's a relative cakewalk) and I was amazed at how easy of a life it was, if you didn't care about things like possessions, and privacy, and self-respect.

Took me three months to get the hell out of there, and I've never looked back.

It was the first time in my life I felt truly alone. That was a revelation for me. I was a cloudy person before that. I didnít understand the correlation between action and consequence. So, that time taught me a lot.

Had it been Alberta Canada or Milwaukee Wisconsin the story would have been different. So Cal is an easy place to live.

I had a big box filled with sheets of acid I sold to lots of beach goers and a group of punks who were squatting in a vacant office building.
