NYC: Soup for the Soul

As much as our New York trips are fairly indulgent, for some time I wanted to try some volunteering. Mental health is a very personal passion of mine and the link with the most basic provisions in life and homelessness is fairly strong.

I heard or read some time ago from an innocuous quote based on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs that humans only really need Shelter, Sustenance (food & water) and Love (or Sex, depending on how primal you believe we are).

Everything else above this is a bonus and are just “things” we covet that provide no long-term emotional benefit.

I thankfully get to go home every night to a warm, welcoming home with food and an extended family that would have us there with them no matter what.
