Confederate Monuments

One of these days I will get back to writing. For now, I will be amplifying voices that need to be heard.

It is high time we stopped honoring abusers.

Tuesday Is Another Primary

Hello Again,

If you are passionate and confident about your current choice for President, no need to read any further.

However, if you are ready for change and want to rock the vote in a literal sense, write this name in on your primary ballot:
Mari Tamburo

At this point, we have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Happy Summer Solstice!

Please share this message. If we really want to get money out of politics, we are going to have to make some noise and get some results without it.

Supreme Court Triple Play

My time last night was spent tending to an immediate survival matter, but I would like to mark yesterday with some words from one of my community college professors, Scott Lankford:
"Triple play in just one day -- LGBTQ Rights upheld, Sanctuary Cities laws upheld, and now a crucial provision of the Clean Water Act upheld too.  At least one branch of government is still left standing."


With Love,

Taking Care of Each Other Means Taking Care of Our Environment

Please understand that when things seem so overwhelming, we can shrug our shoulders and just want to give up.

Bad news can crush us, or it can inform and inspire us to do better.

We cannot eat, drink or breathe money.

Our lives depend upon healthy air, water and soil.

Please contact your elected representatives.

Thank You,

About that sidewalk...

For me, it was never about the sidewalk. I became so involved with that, because I could not understand how a small handful of people got to decide what was best for other people and broke a bunch of laws and bullied to get their way.

So, even now, when people tell me "what's done is done" I tell them - "No, it is not done. It will be done when the people responsible for creating the mess - fix it."

Unfortunately, we can't fix something we do not admit is a mistake. This is true of many situations.

But, what if we approached life as a we approach learning a song -- if we looked upon mistakes as lessons?

As opportunities?

The sun rises every day.

May the good in your heart rise to meet the sun, and shine all over the world.
