More pre-Earth Day leafleting and looking forward to summer
Category : Uncategorized
Out again today with the environmental info. I forgot to bring the camera so I don’t have a picture.
It was just 2 of us today, at Commercial Drive skytrain station. We gave out about 400 leaflets in an hour and a half, which really surprised me, since sometimes it seemed to slow and as if no one was taking a leaflet. So many people walked by and said no thanks or just ignored me. I’ve been doing this for years and it’s still tough to deal with the feelings of rejection.
There are almost always surprises. Like the really old overweight guy in a leather jacket who walked by and then came back to get a leaflet, looked at it, and said “this looks like an interesting read, thanks!” It’s nice to be surprised about people.
I’m also getting together a vegan meal to bring in to Talk 1410 on Monday. I’m going to be on in the afternoon, and Pat Maliha challenged me to bring him vegan food. He says if he likes it he’ll go vegan for a week! So far it looks like Radha will be preparing something for me to bring and I’m getting some Chicake. I love Chicake! And I love Radha, almost as much as Chicake.
It’s looking to be a busy few months, with lots of events, both personal and Liberation BC. I really hope to see some new faces, since there are lots of events where we could use volunteers. All in all, it’s looking to be a fun summer!
