Living on the road my friend, was gonna keep you free and clean. Now you wear your skin like iron – breath’s as hard as kerosene.

My big oil/big tobacco denier paycheck didn’t come through again, so I’m drinking beer out on Church Street in Burlington, VT while my laundry is drying at the laundromat. I’m living in a tent 15 miles away – which had an inch of water this morning and my sleeping bag was soaked after an inch of rain last night. The frogs were deafening last night. (Apparently they don’t mind being wet.) When you have to ride your bike for an hour to do the laundry, the beer tastes a lot better.
I love my life here. People don’t realize how much they are missing living indoors in their climate controlled homes and cars, and sitting in front of their brain-controlled televisions. It makes them crazy enough to believe brainless government propaganda, and causes them to miss the grace God has given us.
“If I saw a TV set in here, I’d shoot it like I would a mad dog.”
