First Glance – Zuccotti Park…more to come
I went to Zuccotti Park today because I had to see what is going on with my own eyes (I guess paranoia is party-less!). I’m going to write on it, I’ve got what I think are some great photos that will give the curious a better idea of what it’s like and I’ve got another day or two to explore. If you want a better idea of what’s happening in Lower Manhattan, who these people are and why they’re doing what they’re doing maybe tchewn in here for the next few days. I’ll be posting what I sense along with photos. Day number one started with an out of the blue face to face photo of a big time player (maybe the biggest) in the American Protest world and then just got weird and inspiring.
My first glance as I rounded the corner and laid eyes on what I’d been hearing for blocks was…Street Fair! My second glance was…Weird Hippie Freaks (three separate words – three separate stereotypes). My third glance was…Humanity. Everyone is here, even if I didn’t see them, they’re here, you’re here, whether you know it or not. One thing is for sure…maybe three things. The first is that there is a gleaming clarity that exists underneath the differences that divide us, this is vital, I think, to understand and I’m not sure if I do but I get the sense that it’s important. The second is that the revolution Will Be Televised – but not by the networks. The third is that these people have no idea what they are up against. No matter what you think of the movement, what your views are, whether you have a job or don’t, whether you can pay your bills or not, the noose is tightening around the necks of the people in the park, there is a tipping point coming and ohh how interesting it will be to see who flinches first and just what it is that constitutes a flinch…until then..
Tchewn In, there is A LOT more coming…!
