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

Welcome to Virginia!

I am disappointed it is still very dark when I leave the rest stop, so I'm driving this scenic route with only my vague memories of her beauty, shrouded by pre-dawn chill and mist.

And a huge tractor-trailer attempting (unsuccessfully) to run me off the road! At first, I see him veering swiftly into my lane so I lay on the horn. He has no intention of swerving back into his lane but continues to charge into the slow lane where I am chugging along.

Fortunately, for both of us, there is a very wide shoulder and I react very quickly, especially for someone who has been lost in memories. I immediately swerve myself and slow down, allowing him to charge in front of me.

I recover enough to whip out my cell phone with camera and begin to chase him up the hill. He begins darting in and out of traffic preventing me from getting behind him, also gaining speed, until he zooms onto another freeway.

I have taken a few pics of his license that maybe will come out. Welcome to Virginia! I seem to also have these memories stored along with the rolling wooded hills!
