I know that I haven't written in a week, but It was for many reasons.
First thing is I was exhausted. I have been in the cold and rain trying to gather signatures on my petitions for a month now and it finally took it's toll. So ,even though I can't afford them, I took a few days off and slept.
Secondly, I am having to do this by myself. I'm not complaining, mind you, I've rather enjoyed it, but I'm learning that you need structure and assistance, and that requires money or access to people willing to donate their time. I have many people backing my effort, but they can only do so much and they have done all they can. You all know who you are and I thank you very much.
Third, if I can't pull the rabbit out of the hat in the next 3 weeks and gather 1500 signatures from somewhere, I will not be on the ballot. I have to realize that!
I think I have done what I set out to do and I hope I can get further, but if I don't reach that threshold of 2,000 signatures, I will not be ashamed of what I accomplished. I brought many people together in a common bond and a common goal, and I and we will go on to the next challenge. I have not given up hope, in that somehow I can still pull this off. I will go down swinging!
It's just been a frustrating week. Tomorrow, I will try Farmington and the college!
May peace be with you all.
