Clarence came up to me while I was shooting and starting talking to me. A lot of homeless do this. They spend their days alone and when they have a chance to talk to someone, especially someone who is interested in what they have to say a lot of information comes out. He has moved around the country a lot and this is his 7th time back on Skid Row. He likes it here. Likes the weather and the people. He wanted to explain to me why he drinks and has problems. Clarence is a cutter. He lifted up his jacket sleeve to reveal an arm horribly scarred by years of cutting and self mutilation. He has done this to himself since he was a childI and it has taken him years to understand why he does it but he is now in counseling feels he is getting the help he needs to break this cycle of destruction. I hope I see him again to get an update on his progress.
