Patrick

Patrick has been homeless in Austin for seven years. He likes to stand out on 6th Street and make people smile.

Patrick says it’s cold and it’s wet, but he calls himself an old country boy and he makes the best of it.

While I was recording this, a waitress from one of the clubs came outside to see what I was up to. She told me Patrick is a good person. She sees him helping people every day. She said he’s helped her a few times.

Patrick was panhandling. Once he got a few dollars, he went to a store and bought himself a sandwich.
