"I am proud that I have never refused to sing for anybody."

"To my old brown earth
And to my old blue sky
I'll now give these last few molecules of "I."

And you who sing,
And you who stand nearby,
I do charge you not to cry.

Guard well our human chain,
Watch well you keep it strong,
As long as sun will shine.

And this our home,
Keep pure and sweet and green,
For now I'm yours
And you are also mine"

— Pete Seeger

A couple of things

I just set up a monthly donation of $25 to the RI Community Food Bank.

This interview between Sarah McCarry and Mairead Case about being a working artist with depression -- the first in a series -- is good to read, but the part that really got me was "When I feel like E.T. I phone home." I am so grateful to and for all the people I can phone home to.

Some poems up at Similar:Peaks:: about making and fearing futures. Thanks to Rachel and David and the other Similar:Peaksers::. Thinking about fear a lot lately. (Also, feeling a lot of fear lately.) Watch this space.
