Two weeks in a row!
It is starting to fit more neatly into my life. You know, one little thing I can do. Plus I have started to count on going out to lunch with other vigilers afterwards. I usually just have a spring roll at the Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant they always go to. It comes with soup and hot tea. The ladies are very nice about helping to store the little cart of signs while we're eating. I don't know what they think about the war, but the food and service are very good. And this week, I didn't have to worry about getting a parking ticket because my car was safely in a shop getting a new thermostat.
I'm still working out what to do with myself during the vigil. Yesterday I held a sign that said, "All outward wars we do deny. - George Fox" But other than that, should I chat with the vigiler next to me? Should I smile at people walking by? Should I close my eyes and pray for peace? Yesterday, I did some of each.
I also resolved a few weeks ago to respond to all the emails I get from FCNL about contacting my legislators. I decided not to worry that it would be more effective to send a handwritten, personalized letter. It is more effective to send a formulaic email than to do nothing. At least it will get counted as one more email from FCNL.
UPDATE: Now with proof!
