Multi-Purpose Multi-subject site of Jim Lantern, Independent Journalist, Science Fiction Author
THE LANTERN PROJECT
Beginning Friday 6 November 2015
Motto: “Auxilium Via Lumine” – To Help Light The Way
With new focus on Homeless and Housing Issues.
Loss of affordable housing is now the Number 1 cause of homelessness here in the United States, accounting for 51% of homeless people – including families with children,
married couples, singles, seniors only getting Social Security Retirement benefits,
and others like me on Social Security Disability benefits,
as well as some part time workers and low wage full time workers.
Donations, for the new Lantern project now being developed – regarding homeless and housing issues, via my legal name James Harwood instead of my “pen name” Jim Lantern
The above image now named “Jim Lantern” was formerly “Joe Lantern” used by a church youth group, which no longer exist, and I now own all rights to the image and its new purpose – to be used for The Lantern Project. Religion will play a role in this project, such as like churches acting as charities. The header/background image (from free wallpaper), showing a man with a backpack walking on a path, now also ties in with this new project.
Details and more information about The Lantern Project will be posted in the near future after I’ve moved into my new apartment here in Norman Oklahoma – I will include a street address for U.S. Mail – and a special phone number exclusively for sending text messages to me (no calls and no voice mail please). This posting might be added to, edited, and updated.
After my homelessness ends – Monday November 9th soonest to Wednesday November 11th latest, I will not turn my back on those who are still suffering – not just local but also nationwide. I will be developing new ways to help them upon being in a more effective position to do so. Donations will help to make that possible, such as for:
- Obtaining Internet service at my new street address.
- Purchase of a new computer (or Chromebook or other kind of laptop or notebook).
My budget will be less and tighter now because I’ll be paying more rent now (and paying electric and gas at my new address) out of my monthly disability benefits, compared to when I was living at my former home address before it was sold and scheduled to be bulldozed – causing me to become out-on-the-street homeless. In the past, I’d have never considered asking for donations, but now there is a kind of war for survival of low-income people, and I’m in it for the duration of my own life – now age 59.
Jim Lantern is my legal “pen name” for the Internet as an Independent Journalist and Science Fiction Author.
James Charles Harwood is my legal birth name, born 5 March 1956 in Wichita Kansas.
Postings are in the U.S. Central Time Zone for Norman Oklahoma where I’m again living since 10 October 2015, previously living in Norman 3 May 2008 to 2 May 2015 at Bishop’s Landing Apartments (sold and to be razed).
