No, everything is not fine. My depression has been periodic in my life, an inspirational and creative friend. Yes I have understandably worked to surmount the depression. I no longer find that this is called for for me. My job, the job of all of us is and must be, to stir people's hearts. Fun, Pleasant, nice to be around, is not what the world needs from me, or you. Disturbed, mildly depressed. Not as an act, but as the only sane response to what is being done by us to all creation. One of the few great psychologists, Abraham Maslow, was asked at an august convention where he was speaking, dr. Maslow you cite Abraham Lincoln as iconic of human health , yet Lincoln was known to be depressive. Maslow replied, you think someone being depressed in the midst of a civil war Slaughter is a sign of unhealthy?

In a couple more days it will be ready to roll. Major progress on the punch list again all day today. The notion of a solar trailer is pretty significant. This is a second generation of the trailer. Some important upgrade features are noted in the photographs below and a description of each photograph. The challenges include lightweight, low cost, reliability even in moderate wind conditions, the ability to tie down in the event of extreme winds. The ability to angle the panel left or right to catch full sun. The ability to have panels extended Way Beyond the vehicle so that if the vehicle is casting Shadows at least some of the panels will still be generating electricity. And on and on.  I suggest that if you are really interested in promoting renewable energy that you do something like I have even if you don't extremely need it. As it sits here this vehicle is about $12,000, but it is only a third of that or less and functional parts, $3 to 4000. and then it's basically free except for $120 in tires every thousand miles ( quite standard on a bike)  and  $0.10 a mile  for the depletion of lithium ion batteries.  And in another couple of years it'll be less than that simply because there will be places to rebuild the batteries which is very inexpensive. The stylish cab from Organic Transit, don't buy it unless you want zero, zero, zero, support, the stylish cab is needed or beneficial for the full-time campaign I wage. It is 80% of the cost. It could easily be an under $500 Schwinn tricycle with a $600 motor. Or it could be a more sophisticated two thousand-dollar motorized trike. Or most likely still it could simply be  a  motorized bicycle  with just one or two panels.  If you can commute around a city like I did around Washington DC with a motorized bike and a panel you wouldn't plug your batteries in anytime within a year most likely. Why aren't you doing something like this? If you're serious about getting people to think about renewable energy, in time for it to matter, you'll seriously consider this and some of you will do it. Oh, and the American flags you wonder? Yes, I detest with every cell in my body the America that behaves as it does today and for most of its existence. But I refuse to surrender what I was told it stood for when I was in kindergarten, freedom and justice for all, give me your tired your poor your huddled masses yearning to be free. I refuse to surrender that.

### Exploration for life, to plant seeds, to Kindle Fires, will resume soon. Another two full days of repair work and the vehicle should be almost ready but departure cannot resume until after Friday when a very expensive battery arrives that was used up on the Sprint from North Carolina to Standing Rock last fall. If you have recommendations of folks who would like to provide a night's lodging,  (traveling in the Midwest region for the next several months), or folks that should receive a visit, please let me know and I'll begin to put things on maps. Departure is from Bemidji Minnesota. Directions will be determined by you, in part,  which of you reply with what suggestions. He wept, wiped tears from his eyes, the nice, large, late forties man in his big white pickup truck, as he heard the story of the vehicle, the journey, the quest. He was deeply moved by my rhetorical question, what are we leaving our kids and grandkids? His heart was most definitely stirred. The one thing required, the only thing required, for a decent future for all creation is stirred Hearts. Sometimes this journey does that. Also, donations are welcome and needed at my email address start underscore loving at yahoo.com. (Those of you that watch this journey but never help, if the words, voyeurism, freeloader, do not fit, please don't wear them.)

Another all-day attack on the repair and upgrade of the vehicle prior to resumption of the search for life in the United States begun last September 2nd and resuming this weekend I expect. Major progress on the punch list. Major dapl repairs now complete. Many minor enhancements done and some left to go. Thank you mr. Credit card.

Where am I traveling next? This question is regularly

Where am I traveling next? This question is regularly asked. Wherever I might be found, my answer. Jesus' answer, too, I suspect.

Online they had a menu it said two pancakes for $2. I just learned from the very very kind warm-hearted waitress that the menu online is old and they don't know how to take it down. This after I indicated there was nothing on their menu I could afford. I'll buy your pancakes she said. I had hoped it would be a high-traffic local restaurant where people have the chance to have their hearts stirred by the vehicle. And on that count I was correct. So that's how I justify the expense of a two or three dollar breakfast.

Regarding Syria: What I know is that I don't know what's going on in Syria, and neither do you. They have oil, they sit on valuable oil Transit routes, and they don't do what the United States tells them to. You don't think your government is lying to you? Do you think your government would hesitate for one second to conduct a gas attack on Syrians for oil?

"I envy you for what you're doing sir," he said. "I wish I were free to do it."  "Everyone can do it," I said. "All you have to do is lay down everything that Society tells us to value. Going on twenty years now ago I forsaw that everything was collapsing, the economy, democracy, environment. I said to myself, 'James, what are you doing about this?' The answer was, 'Making excuses for myself why I couldn't try.' Once I saw that, I was unable to keep making excuses and I've been trying to get in the way ever since." I added, "And yes, just like the man Jesus said it would, it has cost me everything, husband, wife, houses, fields, son, daughter, and it has brought on persecutions... $300,000 a year career in high-tech, everything that goes with that, most recently facing a year in prison and $3,000 fine for standing up for human rights of our native sisters and brothers and our water at Standing Rock... oh, and thousands of dollars and cost done by our sisters and brothers in uniform to this vehicle and my belongings on the day of the arrest.."  I simply told him the truth. I don't think he liked to the answer. Did the truth sstir his heart? It doesn't seem it, but who knows? In time?

Thank you parking lot sister. Yesterday she gave me $3. "Do you collect money," she asked? "This is all I have."  "I accept donations," I said. and then she came back half an hour later and gave much more. (I never ask in word or mannerism, not if I am on death's door, I will not ask. I do share the opportunity from time to time. How can I not offer to share this banquet of Daily Bread, of opportunity to serve in solidarity from the soul?) " I'm going away for the weekend, and I thought to myself, how can you go away for the weekend and not help someone who is working for our young ones?" Her kindness moved me deeply then and now. The $20 is partly on the table with this breakfast. But the kindness, that's what moves me. That's Creator where I see It and secondarily in nature. This yesterday in the hardware store parking lot where I had been working all day. Maybe 15% of what I spent in the store yesterday. LOL. Credit cards. She had gone in shopping for half an hour. An early forties woman. Lived in Sudan at some point and I mentioned to her my first Washington DC hunger strike of 50 days, February in Washington DC, 24 hours a day in front of the Sudanese embassy, very cold as I recall.  2007, trying to stop the genocide in Darfur.
