Tucson is representin’ their support for Occupy Wall St. in a rally starting at 9 am at Armory Park tomorrow. After all, 99% is most of us – no matter where we live and no matter whether our political leanings are left, right, or center.
Last week, a group of us from the Arizona Yoga Association agreed to offer yoga classes at the rally – so we’re loosely having a teach-in. We will be a part of the Yoga/Meditation group. Our job is to add to the groovy peace vibes – and to teach people how to cultivate those vibes for themselves! I’ll be there, sometime after 10:30 am.

OccupyTucson was featured on Countdown with Keith Olbermann this week.
Hoping all goes well tomorrow – I admit, I am a little nervous. I was talking to my mom this evening and she was telling me about a NYC cop who ran down a protestor with his motorcycle. I guess she was watching the video of the man being run over because the conversation turned into, “ew! oh! yikes!” (Turns out the person was a legal observer).
Walking around downtown tonight also had me thinking about Gabriel Giffords. Crowds have always made me a little nervous (except, oddly, when I am singing) – I guess I go through the worst-case scenarios in my mind. Then, I let the thought pass.
Tonight, I have been observing where my mind goes. Just because I am nervous and can imagine a lot of scary things doesn’t mean I won’t go. I choose not to live in fear. I have so much gratitude to people all around the world standing up for me, despite their own fears.
Before I close my eyes, sending out good vibes all around the world, and to where I imagine I will be tomorrow.
Surrounding Tucson with light and love – surrounding the whole planet with light and love.
Hope to see you tomorrow!
