DK_11.28.12._JournalEntry_p1

On the plane from Vegas to New Orleans for a quick vacay with my dad before he goes on a week long cruise and I go to DC for this job fair I got a scholarship to attend from the New Organizing Institute called RootsCamp. : )

Tomorrow = Airboat rides across the swamplands! I've never been to NOLA so I'm curious what it's like post-Katrina.

Yesterday I spent 15 hours in the desert and in Yosemite alone. It was supposed to be an 8.75 hour drive but I kept stopping, taking the long way, and soul searching. I have a lot of change in my life coming and a lot to thing about & consider...

- Like my next job - Like my love life - Like who I want to be - Like where I'm coming from - Like where I'm going...

in general.

lots to process.

I stopped in Yosemite and cried at the simple beauty of this world.

I stopped, taken by the Earth, and I made a pilgrimage to Mono Lake...

the same ancient waters my miwok ancestors looked into.

there

I

found

parts

of

me

ones that will never leave my bones.

When everyone is gone

my native blood will

always be and I

find truth

and love

in that.
