"Melissa" - I met ...
"Melissa" - I met Melissa on another trip into Bryant Park (NYC).
What first caught my attention was the guitar setting on a chair next to her.
That provided the opening.
I asked about the guitar and she was off and running.
Another real talker.
Melissa is homeless and has only been in NYC for six days.
She spends the nights just outside the park and the days in the park.
She came from Southern California where she also lived on the streets.
I asked how she came up with the money to get from California to NYC and she told me she saved enough from her Social Security Disability checks to pay her way.
She was very open about her battle with schizophrenia and how she had gained a lot of weight from the psychotropic drugs she was on.
It sounded like she had stopped taking the drugs and now she is trying to go the homeopathic route.
Melissa said that she had worked in the hospitality industry for many years prior to her diagnosis and mentioned a number of major hotel chains that she had worked for.
Her jobs took her around the country.
She said the last time she was in NYC was 20 years ago when she was 22 years old.
Back to her guitar… she had broken 3 strings and was waiting for another guitarist, Dusty, she had met to come and hopefully replace the broken strings.
Melissa said she loves music, loves to sing and likes languages.
She was smiling almost the entire time we talked.
I've spent the past few days working on my presentation that will be the opening part of the "Street Stories" Curator's Conversation with Lisa Tremper Hanover, Director & CEO of the Michener Museum and curator for my "Street Stories" exhibit.
