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"

On the road... not

I realize I still cannot hit the road. Today, Shazam, with her magic touch and skills, has fixed my solar, making me road-ready. But I do not yet have the funds to roll.... Saturday.

I would have had a VERY difficult time making it through today had my dearest friend not invited me to the city. We cooked together, sauteing greens from the garden with onions and garlic, adding green tomatoes and black-eyed peas, sprinkled with tears, flavored with chemo verses vitamins, wrapped in tortillas and salsa.

Tomorrow, I face CPS. What do I tell her, how do I present our side, where do we talk about the weight of the terrible decisions parents have to make, some decisions so much heavier then others, some carrying no more weight then a little sock on a tiny foot.

My daughter believes visualizing CPS away is enough. I believe in being pro-active.
