Samuel is homeless in Los Angeles. What caught my attention is Samuel had laid out a bunch of rocks and plants creating a Zen garden next to his tent.

Samuel is educated, intelligent and he has skills, but because Samuel has a hard time stabilizing his emotions, it’s hard for him to work for someone else.

When I asked Samuel about his future, he told me he has potential and hope, and because of those to things Samuel believes he can still accomplish his dreams.
