the m street hotel

i’m at the groundbreaking new organizing institute – where old school field meets new school technology. some good trainers coming through, but i think i know exactly why the democrats keep losing – i’ll keep you posted.

personally, this is intense. we wake up at 9 and work till at least midnight and i am very tired already and we’re not even halfway into it yet. and i’m still sick, its slowly moving into my chest and that means of course no smoking. and i broke my phone charger and have no way to get another one! so my phone is out of batteries and now i am unreachable except by email or aim. i am trying not to be grumpy, cause there’s a lot to learn here, but there’s also a lot missing, a lot that’s old, a lot that’s perky but perhaps empty. but i’m finding the dope people who are doing things in new innovative ways and learning.

i want to see my sister and some d.c. friends while i’m here and haven’t gotten to yet, haven’t gotten to really leave this hotel even. send me love notes people! i don’t even know what day it is!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Indian activist Gandhi led many peaceful rebellions against oppressive governments, first in South Africa and later in British-controlled India. At first he called his strategy "passive resistance," but later disavowed that term because it had negative implications. He ultimately chose the Sanskrit word satyagraha, meaning "love force" or "truth force." "Truth ('satya') implies love," he said, "and firmness ('agraha') is a synonym for force. 'Satyagraha' is thus the force which is born of truth and love." According to my reading of the astrological omens, Virgo, satyagraha should be your word of power in the coming weeks. Your uprising against the forces of darkness has got to do more than say "no." A fierce, primal yes should be at the heart of your crusade.
