Alex Hundert, safe and sound.

Alex Hundert, safe and sound.

I am out of jail; safe and sound.

I have been out of the house, wandered around the neighbourhood, in daylight and in darkness last night. It is good to be out.

Here is something I wrote last week.

“…any strength that i may have carried through this was brought in from the outside, borrowed from the people I have been honoured and privileged to fight alongside, derived from the communities and the earth that we fight for, it is derivative of our struggles, sent in from the outside word by word, letter by letter, from the people who have extended themselves into this enclosure to support, to keep of strength, to keep up the fight.  all of the strength i have had in here has come from them, from you, from being able to stay connected to community, and in turn rooted to the earth.”  (March 21, 2013)

All I really want to say right now is to extend my most sincere gratitude and utmost appreciation to everyone who has offered support to me and to my family and friends and to the various communities I and others who have gone through the same and similar experiences belong to, and to those who offer the same to the numerous other people going through similar experiences for numerous other but intersecting reasons who so rarely get the same, thank you, so much.

And especially to those who have been central and integral to the support i have received, more.

I have decided not write a list of names, cause I am sick of lists of names, and also because I do not want to forget or exclude anyone.

To everyone, see you in the streets.
