took him in earlier here w Steve Desmond:


26 min – jj – on not being able to get out of addiction..

2015 – steve- had 3 tragic events – fetal steal, son killed parents, and one other.. got core and lead and angel initiative.. to help people get clean, housing, job

30 min – if built a jail .. we’d fill it in no time.. but would be sweeping under rug..

build housing instead ie: living spaces

jj – i as owned by dope.. if i can change.. (4 months clean).. why i’m clean went to a 12 step and heard a gal that was talking to a cop .. then i did.. with you (steve)..  so hoping this podcast brings hope.. helping me w assumptions i had.. ie: can’t talk to cop about addictions/crime

33 min – steve: all the things police expected to do.. counseling.. homeless ness.. you know a non criminal activity

really..? seems we criminalize it a ton ie: unauthorized home less ness

jj: if everybody that needed help got help..  they have to have that want to stop.. there’s help out there

but we need to nip the lag time.. the putting people on hold.. w/o resources.. that’s killer

wondering if we can access the full potential of a library‘s unique opportunity: equity .. everyone getting a go everyday

imagining the library as a means to quit putting people on (bureaucratic) hold.. by facilitating whatever it is that people need.. today..  ie: a book, a home, a hit, .. could we use tech as it could beto facilitate ourselves back/to the natural sync of an undisturbed ecosystem..? – (beyond youmedianess – even beyond Chera Kowalski‘s a life line ness)

my experience w findings.. in order to get to a quiet revolution
