BLACK LIVES MATTER!

I'm on a little two lane road with no shoulder, twisting up and down mountain (for these parts) roads through woods so thick no houses are apparent, only a dirt road leaving the pavement every couple miles maybe.

The kind of place where white people typically dominate. So I'm thrilled when, after stopping at a T intersection and being directed towards a small village, I round a corner and there bold as can be stands a gold and black "Black Lives Matter" sign with a black raised fist!

Although no people are present, I honk my horn gaily & hope they know I'm connecting with them. The motorcycle behind me roars out across the double yellow line to pass me and become a flicker in the darkening night.



Awesome - virgin trip!

My first trip with the Death to Racism back finished, a womon has left a note written on the back of a chipotle receipt on my truck parked in the farmer's market lot:

"This is amazing" with 3 hearts!
