Santa Fe to Atlanta - here we come!

We break reluctantly from the cocoon of loving and lovely wimmin and pull out of Santa Fe full, revitalized, reenergized, healed and inspired. Driving down I25 in pretty heavy traffic, we are warmly greeted by folks in passing cars, trucks and motorcycles. We treasure this positive transition from the hullaballo back into the fray of the predominant paradigm.

The truck overheats at the slightest hill so we head slowly for the flats and Oklahoma where she stops overheating and runs normal –I am greatly relieved!

We have so many conversations with positive, anti-war people in grocery stores, rest stops, gas stations, it grates painfully with the realization death and destruction has continued heavily this weekend while we were surrounded by so much love, peace, and positive energy.

We are all ready to return to work, including Eli who flew to Santa Fe to travel the rest of the way to the Social Forum.
