The Daily Egyptian

Timothy Cricket Mullen, originally from Greenville, plays his banjitar Friday, Sept. 25, 2015, outside Good Samaritan Ministries. For me to actually sit there and be able to play brings so much joy and so much comfort that I know I can do something thats going to travel with me for the rest of my life, said Mullen about his music. Mullen describes Carbondale as a home away from home. When he is not staying at Good Samaritan House, Mullen stays with whichever friend is able to accommodate him at the time. My thing is, its societys belief that a person is homeless, but wherever you feel more comfortable at, that should be your home, not a building, Mullen said. Me myself, I’m more of a free spirit. Like if I want to go out and do something, Im going to go out and do something. Otherwise I just stay at home, which home could be right over there in that field. (Jacob Wiegand | @jawiegandphoto)
