“Soda Pop” John

I was downtown Colorado Springs the other day taking photos under the Colorado bridge when I ran across this gentleman (his name is John but everyone calls him “Soda Pop”). I asked him if he was homeless, he replied “No, I may be houseless but it’s the people I meet and the friendships that develop that make me feel at home”. Some times we let opportunities in life pass us by but it’s our character that keeps us going. I’m so happy to have met so many great people in my life. I’m sure that my family is just as dysfunctional as the next but it’s a great one; so much love, so much compassion and their arms are always wide open. My brother is a pain in the butt but I wouldn’t trade him for a can of snails and boy do I love snails! Keep those you love close and tell them everyday how wonderful they are. Hope you like the picture, his face has such a story to tell…
