Cry, the Beloved Country

Well, there's that: we're not apartheid South Africa. At least not yet, anyway. Rough week!

Good suggestions. Here's Part Two:

These are suggestions from NYC. I expect there are many other worthy organizations, activist groups, artists, journalists — some local, some California-centric — that could use support: the local library is high on my list.

You might consider joining others in support of indigenous rights, our water, and our climate on November 15.

Feeling paranoid? (And perhaps you should be, all things considered...) This link is for you.

And this, from Chris Clarke:

In case his words get lost in the shuffle, I'll repeat them:

"This morning I saw a little blade of big galleta grass coming up a foot from the rest of the plant. It is such a small thing. It has so little effect on anything. But there are millions of clumps of big galleta grass in the desert. Each one sending out one shoot binds a little soil, sequesters a little carbon. Working together, they heal the earth."

Forward together, friends.


  1. So poignant.

    Yes, forward together. In the end, all we have is each other.

  2. Thank you so much, Gerhard and Hoov B - appreciate it more than you know.

  3. Together! I am so lucky to be in the company of level-headed intelligent people who understand the grave situation and also manage to stay positive.

    1. Couldn't have said it better myself. Sending much love north – thanks, Loree!
