My proudest moment as an activist was at the People's Climate March. My son, who was 7 at the time stood up with a chant sheet and got the ENTIRE crowd to follow his lead in the chants. I have never been more inspired as a parent as I was to hear my baby yelling. BOMB TRAINS?!?! and a hundred people responding to him. INSANE!!!!
Why Do I Do What I Do?
As an activist, i get that question... A LOT! Over time my answer has gotten shorter and simpler... but no less true. I fight for my planet at the risk of my life and freedom because someone has to. Nothing changes if no one stands up for Mother Earth. We may be different colors, we may have different spiritual paths and lifestyles... but one thing we ALL need to remember is that we are ALL HUMAN BEINGS and without Mother Earth... we do not exist.

Strange Kid Conversations
Thursday. 3.24.16 7:49 pm
Ok... I'm pretty sure it's officially true... Kids are damn funny/strange creatures.
My 9 year old son and his best friend were goofing off today after school playing Pixel Gunner. I thought they were still building a scene in Minecraft....
Anthony (my son): Mom, can I have some cheese pizza? (leftovers from yesterday)
Me: Sure... go for it!
Anthony: Damien... do you want some??
Damien: No thanks... I'm trying to kill something.
Anthony: It's not dead yet??
That's just one of many funny things I hear every single day.
Laughing my ass off.... but why?!?!?1

watching: Katy Perry- Roar on YouTube
Ok... i dunno if you've seen this video... but there's a scene in it where Katy is painting an elephant's toenails.... I don't know why this amuses me enough to make me laugh hard enough to bring tears to my eyes... but it does. I am apparently a STRANGE humanoid...
I am known by some as the Queen Of Bad Jokes....
Thursday. 3.17.16 2:37 pm
and the Pun Goblin by others.... It's because i have a remarkable talent for popping up with them at the best (or worst) moments... so starting today... I'm going to have a Bad Jokes section of my blog. It won't necessarily be updated daily... but it will be updated every time i hear a new joke that qualifies..... Check out my writings for said feature... it will improve over time... i promise.

Holy shit..... Portland was SOOOOOOOOO fun... I slept all the way there... AND most of the way back but the meeting itself was productive and fun. I am now involved in yet ANOTHER creative arts working group and will be working with someone who not only do I have a lot of respect for and I love it!!! Environmental activism and creativity are my two favorite things on the planet... and now i get to do BOTH for two different group... And on top of that... SPORT (SPOkane Rising Tide) has nominated me (mostly because I'm the only one who knows HOW) to be their website person. Anyhoo... i have a ton of work to do. Seeya!

Did good at the Adria event today... We couldn't shoot archery because of the rain... but overall... it was fun... I did good in combat... tried (and FAILED) in the bellydancing class... (I'm more cerebral than physical, i guess) and I ate more than enough food to give me heartburn. The next event... is mine.... I'm running the show.... Go Me... or something... The Cupcake Catastrophe... complete with spring loaded catapult from hell,
Tomorrow is gonna be partly boring and partly fun.... I leave at 0730am for a road trip to Portland, Oregon. Got some action planning to do so I'm really excited. The boring part of the day will be the driving. Portland is in the northwestern corner of Oregon... I'm in the Eastern side of Washington.. We're looking at 5 to 6 hours of driving each way.... and this is a one day trip... Go us. Good thing I'm used to long car trips, right?? I plan on packing my pillow and sleeping all the way there so I don't necessarily need to go to bed early... I'm packing my day bag and my Oh Shit!!! Kit just in case we need it. In case you've never heard of it... an OSK is an emergency survival kit and with mine, I can build shelter, start fires and even barbecue..... Anyway... i gotta go put my stuff together.... If i can't use my internet in Portland ( I should be able to... i can use it in Seattle) to update... I'll update on Monday morning!
