Stepping back to move forward…

What’s your challenge for summer? Here’s mine: I’ve got a bit of laryngitis today after teaching indoors in AC for the last two weekends. My throat is dry! This got me thinking about how read more →

Resistance Update 3/17/18

Every fucking day, I pray for Donald Trump to die. Now that I’ve said that, let’s move on to what’s happening and what we can do next. What happened? OK, it’s been a lot longer than a week since my last post. I’m not even going to try to keep up. Here are the two.. read more →

Resistance Update 2/3/18

I want to write more and more thoughtfully this year. Instead of simply posting rants and lists of “What happened?” and “What can you do next?” I’m going to address a topic that’s on my mind in more depth. Right now I’m quite worried about how we will react should the worst happen. If there’s.. read more →

Friendly American Knitters

In Our Knitting Roots Book Club on Facebook, over the last weeks, we’ve been discussing Timothy Snyder’s short book, On Tyranny: 20 Lessons from the 20th Century. This week’s chapter is “Lesson 12: Make Eye Contact and Small Talk.” Rachel, who is leading the discussion says, This lesson is a reminder of how simple resisting.. read more →

Women’s March 2018

All of the 2018 Women’s Marches Below. There are marches in all of the states plus a few in other countries. UPDATE from NY Times: A year after millions of people turned out for the Women’s March and took to the streets en masse to protest President Trump’s inauguration, demonstrators gathered on Saturday in cities across the United.. read more →

Resistance Update 12/28/2017

Hi everyone. The year is wrapping up. I’m glad. The year of 2017 sucked in a lot of ways for so many people. Not just politically, but also personally. I’m ready for a new year, starting fresh with a bright new outlook and a plan to resist, smash, create, and knit. How about you? What.. read more →

Resistance Update 12/21/2017

Happy Holidays everyone! It’s been quite a year, hasn’t it? I can’t believe how fast it went and at the same time how long it dragged on. I’m glad it’s over but I don’t want my life to speed by so quickly that I miss it. In 2018 I will be much more conscious of.. read more →

Resistance Update 12/4/2017

How are you doing? It’s been over a year since Trump was elected and almost a year since his inauguration. That’s a year of having an illegitimate president who is not doing the job and is working on destroying our democracy. That’s pretty dire. But more and more of the dirt in the background is.. read more →

Resistance 2.0 – I am Wonder Woman

I haven’t written much since the 2016 election. I’ve made blog posts about resisting and done a couple of columns for Knitty (early fall 2017 and deep fall 2017), but my writing fountain pen has dried out and my writing notebook has been gathering dust on my desk. It’s time to remedy this situation. What.. read more →

Resistance Update 11/4/17

What happened? Puerto Rico still doesn’t have all the help it needs, and most people are still without power. Trump is in Asia where he’s being an ass and meeting with his puppet-master, Putin. On his way, he was met by creative resisters in Hawaii with signs saying, “Welcome to Kenya.” It all happens so.. read more →
