As long as we are willing to commit to joyful resistance - to doing everything, everything, everything we can to protect the values, communities, and planet we hold dear - then there is hope.
I'm headed for DC tonight.
Tomorrow we march.

I'm thinking about community
what it means to be part of one
how one defines their own
I read this
its a good read. it asks questions and indicates directions to focus on.

"We study history. Those of us who glamorize the great old days without acknowledging on whose backs that greatness was achieved do a disservice to the present and the future. And for those of us fighting for justice, there are several playbooks and source code repositories left behind by abolitionists, trade unionists, feminists, artists, prisoners, and more. History is not a circle, but more probably a spiral, in which we revisit similar but not exact coordinates from the past. We should revisit that past and prepare for the troubling times ahead."

I have been entangled in recent events for months now
since Tuesday I have been sick, raging, sad, disappointed, sleepless and bleak.
A kind of grim hurricane
So much was lost. It hurts.
I think its hooks are out for the moment and I'm trying not to get dragged back in
Today was a little better and I'm trying to choose the things that put me back into myself again.
I sent off a volunteer form to the Nature Conservancy. I find the woods to be healing to my spirit.
I think I will go to one of the local preserves on Sunday
Pride and Prejudice helped last night and so did the second vol of the Neapolitan Series
I hope to sleep tonight so now I will go and do some yoga
