The summer is so close to over. I've been to a giant number of places with a huge family of people that have made this journey everything it's turned out to be. I left home needing to breathe... so I took a deep breath and looked around with greater clarity. Home seems much closer and much farther than ever- closer in my heart and farther from my body.

But this place is amazing. California is everything that it is supposed to be: beautiful and ugly, free and imprisoning, poetic and tragic, untamed and complacent. For every Los Angeles, there's a Likely, and the spectrum is full from end to end with such mirror opposites.

But all prose aside - from Santa Cruz on up, California is exclusively fucking rad. We met heads in Marin, and they made us feel at home while we showed them their home with new eyes. We journeyed together to Rainbow Gathering, Humboldt, all around the Bay area, and up to Portland, but by the time we got to Rainbow they'd already become official members of the Caucus (by unanimous vote of the three present representatives: Robin, Ari, and myself).

After Rainbow, I went with the new Caucus members to Humboldt county, California, to drive on crazy mountain roads and take care of some business. I met a large portion of the population of Honeydew, CA.. quite an interesting little town. Also got to see the much-vaunted Arcata; cute town, but the surrounding thousands of acres of beautiful redwoods is what made Northwest California for me. Driving through the Avenue of the Giants, sunroof open, passengers semi-defenestrated, wowed by the towering trees, mother nature's longest and thickest hairs. Humans can achieve such altitudes as the peak of a Sequoia but we can never own that perspective.

more thoughts next time i get to update. much love ---

I am traveling to the dominican republic to meet up with my friends on tuesday. We are going to work with homeless kids, and basically just offer any help that i can with the privledges that i have. I'm scared cuz the country is in chaos and revolution. but i've never been so excited in my life. We will be traveling around the country, sleeping at friends and family's houses, and generally being crazy. i've never really been out of the country before besides canada, but i guess alot more of the world is like santo dominigo than arlington, MA.
love and solidarity,
becca

it was a beautiful day to be a beautiful day [Jul. 27th, 2004|10:43 pm]

so, here i am at the red and black collective cafe in portland, OR. its been a great day of chillin with austin. we watched a movie, created our own disc golf course, had some good ol dns, and now im drinkin some ROCKIN organic beer. chillax to the max.

so, im tryin to find a ride to sacramento within the next couple days... if that doesnt work, then i will be going to an eco-defense workshop to meet up with jena on friday...hopefully finding a ride down to sacramento then. from there, i will go to the bay area, and then down to LA in waiting for concon. Concon, yeah. cant wait. perfect closure to my long strange trip.

i am dabblin with the idea of buying a plane ticket for the 17th to go back to iowa, rather than my original idea of hitchhiking or "finding a ride". this has much to do with my recent realization that school starts on the 24th... not a week later. it would be good to be able to be home for a week before school starts... i have SOOOO much to do, i dont even know where im livin. ahhhh, alas, everything works out in the end. ok, thats it for tonight.

love and respect to anyone and everyone who reads this. you are beautiful.

dear friends,

don't know where y'all are now or where you'll be in the next bit, but dan (my bro) is going to be in L.A. next week camping and such while i'm @ youth council and wanted me to pass that along - he would love to chill with whoever's in SoCal right then, if that's you, give him a call before this sat @ 781-648-8057 or after then at 781-267-8057 on the cell.

much love,
both of us

freedom of not having plans until concon is fuckin rad. im so down with the wu wei right now and its about time. i feel like ive been pressured to go here or there since GA (not really, but still felt like it). now i have no real pressure... i can wherever the fuck i want and its great. sooo... i have been gifted with the opportunity to go to Vancouver. im going to take it. the question is whether or not i will be coming back sunday to portland or staying up there by myself for a bit and travelling down later.... hmmmm, i dont know and it realy doesnt make much difference at this point. all i do know is that id like to be around LA a couple days before concon... thats it. rad, huh. yep. ok, must go, much love to my people.
