Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. It is steaming with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society we want ALL to thrive in

Gila Bend and tucked in for the nite

I have pulled in Gila Bend, what looks like the biggest town between Phoenix and Mexico. I drove around a little, attempting not to seem suspicious as I circled, looking for an unobtrusive, quiet, 'safe', place to rest for the night.

Gila Bend appears to be one main street with several gas stations and even more hotels. There is something big off to the west of the town. If I was in L.A., I'd think they were 6 or 7 huge 6 story identical mansions in a semi circle; if I were in Iowa, I'd think they were some kind of grain vessels.

I've already passed a huge prison. I think there are too many lights (as in window lights) for this to be a prison.

It looks like people live here in small houses built low to the ground surrounded by desert plants and cactus.

I am parked for the night off the main drag on a side road in front of what looks like an empty lot in between a business and a low house that appears to be dog-less. I'm so exhausted I'm sure I'll sleep through anything tonite!
