Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! For now, I’ve returned from my Joiyssey to participate in the "revolution":I’ve been at many Occupy sites across the country:1st in D.C. Freedom Plaza I faced & challenged racism/white supremacy, sexism/patriarchy, classism, heterosexism & eventually was kicked off the island; then I offered workshops as I drove to CA:“Anti-Racism Geared for White Occupiers”; “NO DRONES” "Successes and Pitfalls of OWS"

Franklin State Park

I try unsuccessfully to find a place we can park in Columbus, near the center where the workshops are going to take place. The nearest campground is 25 - some long, windy & uphill - miles away.

We pay for two nites, a small senior discount included, and I worry about driving 45 minutes or so early tomorrow morning to make it to the protest.

Jasi is thrilled we are camping, even though it has gotten pretty cold. I am grateful Tess has given me an electric heater - I'm nervous about running the propane heater with Jasi being in the camper. I take the risk on my own, but here there are electric outlets included at the site, so I don't have to worry about over-taxing my solar.

We go to bed pretty early, as darkness falls shortly after we get there. Jasi eats heartily, not asking for eggs, and takes his herbs like such a big boy, without complaint. We only read one story and then call it a nite!
