Wilbert Says No

Saturday I met Wilbert.  Wilbert lives on the sidewalk on Venice Blvd west of Abbot Kinney, where Farmer’s market is on Fridays.  I was looking for bundles of stuff to see if they (the bundles) would disappear into the new Venice Beach storage container.
Monday the storage container at the beach opens for homeless people to deposit belongings so they, the homeless, can go to the shelters. Shelters only allow people with belongings approximating the size of a back pack.
And Wilbert was sitting among a long line of stuff.  I had been to Ocean Front Walk to look there but this was the largest grouping of “stuff.”  I took the photo below and then asked the man sitting in the middle his name.
