Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

General Congress of Women: Reclaiming Mother's Day - to be continued

i arrived in davis (about 75 miles east of s.f. and 15 miles west of sacramento) thru a torrent of rain by 9:00a.m. to staff the codepink table at the davis green festival. most folks, discouraged by the rain, were in the process of breaking down their tables & displays.

i attached plastic and other codepink banners around the upper sides of our canapy to protect our tables sitting underneath the canapy and continued to set out codepink information and merchandise.

the rain stopped, grey skies prevailed, the rain began, clouds billowed up, light brightened and faded. the main stage started with the accoustic performers... natalie rolled in and helped staff the table. we both were anxious about the rain & our evening congress of women.

3:00 came & we broke our display down & headed to the capitol grounds in sacramento.
