Alicia The Cat commented on Mimetalker's blog post Giggling gods
"Work definitely helps keep one distracted from the news.  My being a work-horse isn't a total curse.  You sound like you're the best person for the job.  Passion and knowledge is everything."

"It remains interesting to me just how much we refuse to pay for the running of America.  Illinois is in bad shape but so in NJ where dems fight for their vested interests and republicans simply refuse to allow one cent more in taxes.  "

I woke up remembering it was The 4th of July, and then it started. I thought about how this celebrated not only a Declaration of Independence from England (ahem...for white men), but the invasion and conquest of native…

People make plans and the gods laugh...

A year ago I told my boss I'd retire after the summer programs were done. I offered to volunteer enough hours to keep my beloved arts camps and apprenticeship programs alive. 

I knew the Rockford Arts Council couldn't afford me anymore. Donations and corporate contributions were down in a local economy that has never recovered from any recession. And we weren't getting our operating grant from the state any time soon. Illinois is in a…

I thought I would be at my hermitage for a week end retreat today. I reserved it soon after the election. This was my first free week-end and I knew I’d need it by now. I do but I’m not there. Last night a friend called. Her husband was put on life support and she’s given permission to take him off. “I need you.” I didn’t tell her my plans, how happy I was leaving work that day knowing the next morning I would escape for three days of quiet, walks in the woods, time to sleep, read, think,…
