Today was another cold Berkeley Summer day and we were a little tired from knitting many many Large Knitted Ruffles.We drank our water, we ate our emergency peanut,peanut butter chocolate chip cookie, we drank our thermos of tea and put on our hats and we were still groaning with tiredness. I think we have put up about 45 poles in the last 10 weeks. People came up and asked us “What does this Mean?”
“Um” We said. It was hard to think of anything.I think part of what this means to me , today, is getting to feel Berkeley as a city, as one connected being, with all the different sections and neighborhoods being all parts of the one thing, a lively ,beautiful, harsh, leafy, creative City.
