Before winter hit in St. Paul, Minnesota, I met Darryl. He’s been without a home since October, and he’s recently run into a new round of problems as his son needs assistance as well and he goes through a divorce from his wife.

He’s tried to return to live with his family a few times, but it’s never worked out. Complicated issues keep him from staying with them full-time while he finds his way back to his feet.

Asked for three wishes, he paused and eventually asked for only one thing: to turn back the hands of time. To have a fresh start and a second chance at his life.

Now in the middle of the Minnesota winter, I can only hope he found his second chance before the winter became too harsh.
