Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions.

I can’t run my fan as my solar is crashing on me – I can’t keep my fridge going all nite so I’ve been buying ice and sticking it in the fridge so my food doesn’t spoil.

I’m terribly sad to leave the wonderful, powerhouse womyn of Bloodroot and the magical connection with them and all the womyn who’ve stopped by these past few hours. I sold three books and received a hefty donation for fuel besides a birthday treat of the most delicious decadent dark chocolate cake! After a scrumptious vegan brunch gifted my by the owners!

41 years they’ve been this powerhouse of feminism, paving the way, building community, role modeling by example how to combine love, empowerment, business into creating the feminist model of making money and providing healthy, vegan food.

And they've recently successfully survived a transdomination attack for declaring their preference for gathering with lesbians...
