Hi, if I'm even more harsh than usual, or much slower, please understand that I'm under assault by my NECK! Best I can describe it - it feels like a railroad spike has been hammered into my skull 1" behind my left ear and someone is jamming it around. Unfortunately this is an only partial exaggeration. :-( I've never had such chronic pain before and it has been 5 days now. The most sleep I can get is one or two hours at a time before the pain is unbearable, and wakes me up to try to find a little relief. Last week I moved the vigil to accommodate Pr. Obama's anit- nuclear summit, and I suspect that in moving some massive concrete anchors we use I broke something at the base of my skull.
Lizzie / Code Pink from Arizona was the first to tell me, yesterday? Just now a fellow from Minnesota stopped by to say he saw/heard me in a segment - thanked me for what Connie and I are doing (with the support of Ellen and another benefactor).
Recent interviews include several from CNN, preliminary interview by LA Times and an article published recently in the Kuwait Daily.
"This revolution NOW, or we're toast: Throw off "organized religion," including atheism, rationalism, consumerism, patriotism, activism, hedonism... for Universal Love (TOUGH Love). Only seconds are left on the clock." SL
"Are you Saved?" "Do you profess Jesus as your Savior?" is DEEPLY, DEEPLY, DEEPLY offensive to me. THEY DON'T INTEND OT OFFEND ME when so often the visitors ask. But to me it is repugnant, vile, hideous subversion of my beloved Jesus' Teachings.
They NEVER ask (NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER....)
* Do you love your brother as yourself? * Do you do unto the poor as you would have them do unto you? * Do you lay down your life for the sheep? * Do you pick up your cross every day? * Do you devote your life to the least of these? * Do you love Our Father with your whole heart, soul, mind? * Do you lead the children rightly? * Etc. * Etc. * Etc.
It is incomprehensible to me that I will EVER divert one second from my attempts to spark the re-birth of Humanity, not were it to cost me my life. Isn't that strange? I find it strange. And I find it incomprehensible that I'll ever divert energy away from Our Neediest Family, to my own survival, not for a second, not tho it cost my pulse. It's been this way for me for many years now. Every waking second my choice has given me Life, and as an added bonus, pulse too, so far.
