I walked through town the night before Christmas Eve and it was impossible not to notice the amount of people sleeping in doorways.

Homelessness is not a new problem but this was different. This time it wasn’t a handful of people scattered in doorways. This time it was four people cuddled up in one doorway – and it was repeated again, and again.

I was struck with the harsh contrast between two worlds on one street. And I was reminded there are currently so many people today currently walking the tightrope between these two worlds; desperately trying to keep themselves out of homelessness.

Looking towards 2018, I’ve made a conscious decision to do more to help by supporting those charities who do so much. Superhuman was written about anyone who has found themselves on the tightrope, and I hope it helps at least one person to keep on going.
