Venturing into the plaza, I had little intent. Actually I didnt know where I was going even as I fist stepped out of my door. Funny how things work themselves out when you let yourself explore. I stumbled upon two free boxes and a few gems, and then into the plaza. I was texting Alex when I noticed a familar face balancing on a skate board. She looked at me and mutual recognition sent me beaming over with open arms. Working Food Not Bombs, she spent a good amount of time in the plaza. I stayed until darkness had rolled in. I talked with a mom and her son about transitions from Michigan to california, and he told me about his disagreements with goverment at all, and I told him you have to be a part of society to change it. He liked that. A little yelling and a few people off balance doesnt bother me all that much, company is company.
Saturday I studied with Eve and solved problems on the board. Then left to sing and sit in the grass with Laura.
we all felt really awkward and off put by a strange guest. I am afraid my desire to challenge burned a bridge with that group by engaging with him.
We danced the night away at Portegese Hall and I loved it. No kisses like the night before, but many smiles and sweet faces.
Ended the night in my own bed and my own company.
I’m in love with these few days.
