With just over three weeks 'til I make my way South I'm still prepping, but overall, I'm ready to roll.
24 days and counting, 22 days of walking.
My mind has been set on taking this journey for nearly a year. October 1st 2011 at 12:30AM I walked among the tents at Dewey Square. I saw folks huddled under tarps on the soaking ground in the pouring rain. Maybe it's the rain, on a night just like tonight just under a year ago, my world abruptly shifted, and expanded.
It took nine months of watching and studying to find out that plenty was already being done, and that progress is slow, always has been, always will be. Without a doubt, the most important thing that I saw is that I am not alone, I am not the only one that wants to live the change.
Part of me feels like I'm a year too late. My friends at Occupy are tired. They've been fighting their own battles for the last year, here I am stirring things up after the wave has passed. I can only hope that I'm one more drop in a flood.
