As a writer I often find many ideas for short stories and novels in the newspaper.  Today I had the pleasure of reading about Mandy Mulder.  Mandy is an inspired, 22-year-old who is making a difference.  Impressively her business card reads; “Giver, Server, Lover.”  This spring the Rosemount, MN resident will travel across the U.S trying to find out what it means to be homeless.  I can’t think of an article this year that has inspired and made me smile more. You can find more details about her proposed journey on Facebook.   Donations are appreciated and welcome.  LA Carlson
