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

I want your BODY!

I do not intend to be rude, nor do I intend to reject or hurt the feelings of friends, family, acquaintances who want to thank me for my work.

It's not that I don't appreciate knowing I and my work is appreciated: I do. But I don't need to be thanked, and even don't want to be thanked.

Thanking me makes me feel so very uncomfortable: not just because I know there are tons of womxxn who are doing soooooo much more than I've ever even thought of doing. But also because I know I could not do the work I'm doing without the support and love of the very people who are thanking me and others they might not even know.

And also, I don't want to let us off the hook that easily: I feel like when we give thanks, some might feel it is an end to the need to be active. As in "I expressed my thanks, now I can move on to finishing the dishes or my commute or this book."

So PULEEEEEZE don't thank me

Really what I want is YOUR BODY! Your body on the line next to mine!
