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

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.
