Arriving in Albuqurque

Small shower and rainbow as we set up camp on outskirts of Albuquerque. I'm guessing I've walked over 900 miles from LA. We will be here 2 days and have a rally and some other events planned. I'll be spending time with my dear friend, LaVonne who is driving up to be with me for a couple of days. Motel, shower, shopping for new boots, haircut, etc. YAY!

Our community is experiencing a serious split which is threatening our mission. A few of the idealistic young
people are pushing for radical changes in our governance. While we "elders" recognize their idealism and sympathize with many of their issues, it is threatening the stability of our mission. I won't try to explain details, but while they are being respectful (mostly) in their demands, it is costing too much time, energy, and attention. I'm hoping we can find common ground and move forward. The rainbow is a good omen!


  1. I can't imagine walking across the country and I'm sure it is very challenging, in many ways. I will keep you all in my prayers! All of you are heroes!

  2. Hope your group is surviving the potential split and that your march is not threatened. We are thinking of you and sending you light and love, dear Miriam.
