Nothing could have prepared me for poverty and homelessness. Certainly not my upper middle class upbringing. Pacific Heights is a lifetime away from where I am now.

So I wasn't prepared. Just as well or I would have avoided it completely. and that would have been an even more devestating loss. I would have missed the extraordinary blessings that have come my way thanks to being "without home".

When people ask "what happened?" (with that uncomfortable pity-fear look in their eyes) I say:
"just lucky, I guess!"
