I have spent the past two weeks frantically, pleasantly, awkwardly, elatedly painting a mural of a wall paper pattern I designed onto a utility box in Oakland Ca. Tonight, as I was working on finishing it up, a car load of anarchists came to say how much they liked it. I lent them duct tape and cardboard for their police shield. Looks like “my” box will be ground zero for part of the occupy Oakland May 1st general strike. Looks like I may take a break tomorrow and join the strike. If all goes well, I will finish it May 2nd.
