Occupy Oakland

I love how there are so many altars at Occupy Oakland!  I saw at least seven different ones during my visit, every changing and evolving, and well tended.  They are sacred spaces, places of remembrance, places of invocation, places of love.  From the “Occupy Love” altar (which I didn’t create! Loved finding it there!): “This altar is an offering of realizing our life force, of honoring this force beyond the valuing of material currency. It is a co-creation. It is an invitation to share your prayers, thoughts, meditations, artistic expressions. Your love!”
