People who don’t fit in anymore

Out of all the reasons for homelessness, I find there is none that explores the concept of people who have talents and abilities that are not needed in the modern world. These people sensing their “misfit” to the modern world struggle and some eventually end up with addiction and mental illness problems. These secondary problems mask the true issues at times. Meanwhile, the timid are overlooked in our fast paced world, where self-confidence matters more than character. The artist can not find anyone interested in his or her song, poem, painting, craft, etc. because every artistic avenue is saturated with mass media and cheap goods. The warrior can not fight against injustice because the needs of the oppressed are silenced by the media who are expert at shifting minds and clouding issues. The good, talented, strong are dying unless they can adapt. But I hope they do not chose to become boring, ineffective, and weak in the process.

Freelance writer. Activist on homeless issues. 48 years old. I write about subjects that need to be examined closely and thoughtfully. The idea for Brain Sections came from reading a book about abandoned asylums. I wanted to set a suspense story in that setting. The inclusion of crazed scientists turning homeless people into zombies is what makes the story unique. View all posts by tjmcfee
