got arrested again

Forgot to mention I got arrested yesterday morning. It was a beautiful line crossing. It felt so right. Ming and I crossed first, holding hands. Turns out six out of seven of us crossed.

In the holding pen everything felt so vivid. The grasshopper, an iridescent fly, the peace sign a previous protester had scraped into the desert dirt. When S and I said we loved each other. 

I told her that when she pets me I feel like one of her doggies. She said I’m better than a doggie. 

The guards were downright sweet to me. They had listened attentively to R’s speech at the line. Officers Jordan and Ericson asked me to congratulate JB on his becoming a grandfather.  That’s why JB wasn’t there.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.

I love you !

It was a great event. A followup post event Press Release is on our updated webpage here: nevadadesertexperience.org/programs/2016/JFOD2016.htm as well as here: paceebene.org/2016/09/28/justice-for-our-desert-in-las-vegas/ .

I am glad your line crossing at the NNSS and time in the holding pen was memorable and enjoyable.

I love you !

I think we can be tired now for a week. 🙂
