Anyway, know that we are almost invisible in the corporate media, and we...have no political party, really. But we do party, we do celebrate being with each other. From Walt Whitman:
I have perceived that to be with others I like is
To stop in company with the rest at evening is
To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing,
laughing flesh is enough,
To pass among them, or touch any one, or rest my
arm ever so lightly round his or her neck for a
moment - what is this, then?
I do not ask any more delight - I swim in it, as in
-from Enfans D'Adam
