Justice for All

Aug. 25th, 2011 | 09:15 pm

The dedication ceremony of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington DC is just a few days away!

Many at the ceremony may not know that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s wife, Coretta Scott King and his son, Dexter Scott King, adopted a vegan diet in order to extend Dr. King's principles of nonviolence to animals.

"One day the absurdity of the almost universal human belief in the slavery of other animals will be palpable." -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I hope we can all share Dr. King's dream of justice for all.

mood: cold cold

I go running in the wilderness alone. The trail is hard to follow, and is riddled with sharp stones. I instinctually navigate them and bound through the forest, barefoot and cold. The path ahead of me is obscured by trees, but I dash on, headlong, toward some unseen goal. How long will I run? Where will I end up? Why am I running? In the moment, I ask not these questions. I merely move forward. My automated motions drive me uphill to more trail. The path is already laid out for me. I'm trained on my future tracks, unwavering in my devotion to them. Are these my decisions? I don't ask this, either. I'm going exactly where I want to be. Not here. It becomes more challenging the higher I go. But as I cross the alpine tree-line, things become more clear. My fate seems sealed; destiny revealed. I cross the blinding snow; my future burning my eyes, impossible to behold. I don't know where I'm going until I get there.

I just hiked up a glacier and summited Mt. Lyell! So much snow... Miles and miles of snow. The tundra hasn't thawed out yet. Late spring here. Two friends and I went up. According to the summit register at the top, we are the 5th party to summit this year.

Yosemite Rangerin'

I made it here fine, things are great, I'm settled in, getting trained, hiking, climbing, having a blast, missing Cypher, and I finally found a way to get on the interbuttz. Life is good. I have a massive house in Yosemite Valley just under Yosemite Falls and I can see Half Dome from my bed. The grocery store down the road is full of delicious vegan food. I am in heaven. I get to go on bear patrols, too. Don't expect me online much.

So, there's this silly meme going around, so I thought I'd run with it and try to ruin the fun for everyone and end it with my unwarranted participation. Thanks to cypherwulf for bringing this to my attention. You can all thank her.

"List ten fictional characters you would have sexy-time with (in no particular order). Have fun reproducing this meme, as you would reproduce with those you list. Or not reproduce but still go through the motions. UNF UNF UNF motions!"

1. The Captain of The Thames, from Xenogears
2. Bugenhagen, from Final Fantasy VII
3. Attenborough, from Tengan Toppa Gurren Lagann
4. Key, the bishie rock star guy, from Excel Saga
5. That One Balls Guy, from s-CRY-ed
6. The Mother Zombie, from Dead Alive
7. The King of All Cosmos, from Katamari Damacy
