No, I didn't see the comet but remember Haley's comet back in 1974.
I'm actually still in a City too after leaving NY (small one) but I have easy, quick access to the woodlands because of proximity to them - about a half mile away or less...which leads to some fairly vast State forests where the Appalachian Trail passes through.
Life has been much better for me
How so...??? I might like to hear more about good things in your life happening again, like when you were down in Mexicana and posting about it. The activism stuff gets old and wears on the soul; especially amid all those 'hidden' money men/Orgs that subvert with hidden, nefarious agendas...
Many years ago, I was a frequent visitor to an obscure, Downtown NYC anarchist bookstore and "learning" center... I was an avid reader of the weekly Village Voice...and still have that 1st or early edition of The Anarchist Cookbook.
Every so-called 'Leader' I ever met, turned out to be kind of suspect, not honorable, self-centered, sociopathic and generally reeked of the same shit the average Politician stunk of... (fake) It was all a façade for continued manipulation and control by those 'Shadow Masters', of common folk.
I'd say more about it and my experiences within the 'underground' network and operators met, but quite frankly...they and the pervasiveness turns my stomach.
Nuff said (for now) maybe ever???
