It should not be forgotten America is a dream partly arrived at via someone else's nightmare. But it is a dream worth dreaming.

Hey all.

I'm at the computer and in the house of someone who was at first a kind stranger and plucked me off the streets of Oklahoma City. Now they are a stranger no longer.

I've been very fortunate lately as far as people taking care of me. I've had groceries and meals bought for me and I think I've stayed out on my own about once in the last four or five days. There was Sharron and Beverly in Davis and Robert and Tanya and their son Joessiah (sorry if that's misspelled, guys) in Pauls Valley and Zach and Lane in Norman and now Dave and his two dogs, Maggie and Ginger in Oklahoma city. All these people took me in. I almost feel like I'm forgetting someone at the moment and I apologize if I am. All of the company has been very enjoyable and the hospitality very giving. Of course I've also been afforded more showers which is notable because they really help me sleep which really helps me function. Man, do I get dirty in this heat and dust.

Since I fine tuned my approach I have also apparently been much more interesting to the newspapers of the towns I'm passing through. I think four out of five of the last towns with papers I've passed through have covered me and I might still get some TV coverage in Oklahoma city. The articles still aren't spot on but they get the web address out there and that's great.

To those of us in the U.S. and its citizens abroad, I hope that the fourth day of the month of July was a good one. I have so many different feelings and concerns about my country---some of them conflicting---but as it stands, I do love and appreciate it very, very much.

Talk to you later. -your fellow human
