The Spanish poet Antonio Machado is often-quoted:  “We make the road by walking.”  To that I add that sometimes we make the road by shoveling and moving rocks.  Here’s the journal of our exploits on the Mojave Road.

More photos by Scott Braley at his site, including photos of Allensworth, a project we did with Heyday Books.

Other projects:  Bay Area Community Land Trust, Making Contact radio, Phat Beets Produce, Advocates for Indigenous California Language Survival.

And for archives of Prairie Fire Organizing Committee, which was my political home for many years, as well as many other audio, visual and print materials from the progressive and revolutionary movements in the late 60s to the mid 90s, check out Freedom Archives.

Fun stuff, stories by and for kids, travel writing, poetry.  And an essay on child

care in PFOC.
