Where It All Began

Where I am standing, shooting this video, is where my homelessness began, exactly 30 years ago. It is now a park, but it used to be a parking lot, and I lived in my car the parking lot, right there in front of the Davidson County/Nashville Court House. I would park my car down an alley until after hours, and then pull into this lot to spend the night. There are some new buildings, but for the most part it looks just like it did back in 1982, when I first arrived in Nashville.
