Some posts are harder to write than others.  It can be that there are a lot of interruptions,  or that the topic is detailed, or that the thought is complicated and writing isn’t the same as having a conversation face to face.  This post falls in the last category. To cut to the chase it […]

In this case it a Lovely foam core sheet filled with the activities that took place during Latino Heritage Month in 1999 – right here in Pasadena.  It accompanied an informal guerrilla exhibit.  Up for an event and then away to be stored.

Thanks, Bella

Thanks, Bella

There are a lot of reasons why I celebrate Women’s Equality Day.  Most basic reason is that I value equity and equality.   In 1971, “at the behest of Bella Abzug”,  National Women’s Equality Day was established.  Here’s a link to the full text –  http://www.nwhp.org/resourcecenter/equalityday.php Powerful stuff.  It’s easy for me to embrace this […]
