I got the pleasure of holding down the fort this afternoon when several regular occupiers were in and out for a busy Thursday. I began putting faces to names and was surprised by how much I had in common with everyone. Among the crowd there were young idealists, and older/wiser types and a few lovable eccentrics. I would like my audience to know that I count myself as part of all three of those groups. I spent some time by myself at camp today but a great group of people came before long and we shared delicious food provided by fellow supporters and had great conversations that can hopefully continue in the near future.
But I will get on with the photos of camp… I took these when I was mostly alone on a hill, in a park, in the middle of town. It was beautiful. That is right where our movement needs to start, out in the open, battling the harsh climate, together.
