happy Easter

Yesterday we hiked at Red Rock.  We hiked up a canyon we had hiked up before but got farther this time.  It was really fun.  We went a few miles.  Our surroundings kept changing as we went up–the plant communities kept changing, the rockiness, the colors of the earth.  We hiked through joshua trees for […]

Last night was Ming’s birthday party.  Some people didn’t come who we thought would come, but that was okay.  I baked a chocolate cake.  The middle was fine, but the edges were tough, for some reason, and I had never bought frosting before.  I always made my own frosting.  Frosting from a can is not […]

Dear World, I wanted to let you know how much Ming and I walked on the Sacred Pace Walk this year.  Well, last year we walked separately.  This year we walked almost every step side by side, holding hands.  It was good. Sunday–ten miles on the Strip Monday–seven miles? through the desert Tuesday–five miles? through […]

peace walk day four

Ming’s helping people with blisters.  I’m blogging, apparently.  Today was the Peaceover Seder, and it was good but I had a lot of feelings about it.  Like someone said we should call out the names of ancestors and people who we wished were here.  I almost cried then.  Peace walking is emotional.  The veggie matzo […]

peace walk day…three

Last night we slept out in the middle of the desert.  We camped by the side of the freeway, and it was fun.  This morning we had a sunrise ceremony led by a Native American spiritual person.  Ming and I were late.  Then we had a hug around.  It was good to hug everybody present. […]

peace walk

Today we peace walked.  We walked all morning.  That was about ten miles.  Yep, I walked ten miles today.  We stopped for lunch sometime around 2.  “I don’t now if I have any more walk within me today,” I told my friend J.  He offered to give me a ride back to the Nevada Desert […]
