Woodminster Prophet

I posted this on my blog the day before I met Belle at the Wandering Goat on April 19, 2014. I wanted to show her my work with the homeless and saving Ken Kesey’s cottage he lived in while he went to the UofO. I told her I was at the second meeting of OCCUPY that SLEEPS broke off from. She had nothing to say. She had been arrested with SLEEPS activist along with a lawyer who champions the homeless. Surely we would have made a great team. She could have introduced me to another lawyer that is on their side. Why did Belle Burch CONCEAL our connections? She agreed to model for me at my house at the end of our meeting. She offered to edit my novel after she saw this post. Three days later, she is asking me to be more explicit about my bout with cancer, homelessness, and my recovery from alcoholism. Belle and her friends were into street theater, so, my costume was not seen as, nutty. It had to be MY AGE! Why was this old guy more radical then most young hip folks in Eugene? What did I have that they didn’t! Belle had looked at my blog – before she called me to arrange a meeting! She knew what she was getting herself into! But, she made sure – I didn’t!

Covered wagons are patriotic symbols of being homeless in the wilderness. They were portable churches where one prayed that all is well that ends well.
