Signs of the Times

A few weeks ago (around September the 11th, to be precise) the sign in front of the little store here on the little island looked like this:

Sign: We will never forget...nor ever learn.

I like to imagine that the "vandal" was the librarian.

You have to respect the grammar, even if you don’t care for the message.

Here’s what the sign says today:

Sign: People before profit, OWS solidarity

Occupy Everywhere Solidarity

We are leaving for LA in one week. I will miss this quiet, funky, little island SO MUCH, and I truly hope that we end up back here, or somewhere very much like here, one day.

For now… on to where there are people. Lots and lots of people.
