My day off – 3 ½ hours standing in sleet, snow & rain—walking back from Temple with 17… of those who came to the “Silent-No-More” vigil. Clinton was to be on campus, but canceled cause of weather. Ache all over. Facilitation tent blew down. Tents sagging under wet snow—wind predicted for tonight. Haven’t heard how Scott Olsen is doing—fractured skull from rubber bullet [Oakland].

1:20 PM          At Hidden River reading—have 5 Songs of Occupation now—have to be back for a process meeting (City Hall) by 3:00—likely six hours outside to end of GA. Dressed for that, so overdressed here. Bright crisp normal autumn day.

  1. i love it.. i think you could EXTEND this….with the logos from the depths morphing into the sharks and bulldozers that finally kicked you out…a nightmare of logos circling cameras, hungry media looking for blood soaked sidewalks…in the age before they closed All public spaces..


  2. I’ll keep posting these for each day I made entries in my journal, to Nov 29, the night of the eviction. The first post covers September 17, the first day for Occupy Wall Street, through the days of meetings and planning leading up to the decision to Occupy Dilworth Plaza.
