Pounding the pavement

The Society Promoting Environmental Conservation is running a petition to show the government how many people do care about the absurd waste of money that the gateway project represents. And lots of people do care, I met a great group of volunteers today who do care, we care so much that we all sacraficed our Saturday to run the petition.

Canvassing was harder than I thought it would be. It can be pretty discouraging knocking on 10 doors and nobody's home, or didn't speak english, or "sorry this isn't my house", "I think you're wrong", "I don't like people knocking on my door", or talking with a voice on the other side of a cold video camera. Finally I knocked on the door of someone that did care, and knew the issue, and wanted to sign the petition. After that things became much easier; the knowledge that at least someone would sign was a real boost. In the end I filled my page with signatures.

After meeting up with the gang again to trade war stories and clipboards I went home and drew a hot bath for my aching feet. Yes the bathwater was cloudy but it was so worth it.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of these cool people at the Gateway Sucks! party on friday. Everyone is invited!

Obsessions and those http://startso11.info/%2Aunimil+prezerwatywy%2A.html peculiar sensations of haunting dread remain as strange to normal consciousness as do dreams to our waking consciousness; their origin is as unknown to consciousness as is that of dreams.. The stimulus to the sense by which the investigator affects the sleeper is http://startso11.info/wyposa%C5%BCenie+sal.html not properly recognized in the dream, but is intermingled with a number of indefinite interpretations, whose determination appears left to psychical free-will..

His figure and movements were those of a puppet http://startso11.info/przychodnie+lekarskie+-+gdynia.html cut out of shingle and jerked by a string; and his address corresponded very well with his appearance.. The leader of a polar expedition tells us, for instance, that during the wintering amid the ice the crew, with their monotonous diet http://startso11.info/szczecin%7Csite%3Awww.wirtualny.szczecin.pl.html and slight rations, dreamt regularly, like children, of fine meals, of mountains of tobacco, and of home..

To speak figuratively, it is quite possible that a day thought plays the part of the contractor ( entrepreneur ) in the http://startso11.info/praw+czlowieka.html dream.. The unconscious entangles with its connections preferentially either those impressions http://startso11.info/WIKTOR+GRUDZI%C5%83SKI.html and ideas of the foreconscious which have been left unnoticed as indifferent, or those that have soon been deprived of this attention through rejection..
