Compassionate Resistance

In the current political climate in the United States of America, I often feel ashamed, angry, frustrated and repulsed.  I joined a group of resisters in my community; I often feel that I am not doing enough.  Exhaustion at the sheer weight of the dilemma makes me want to pull my head in, if I was a turtle.  I am not a turtle; I'm a feeling, breathing, living and loving woman.

Here are some things that I'm doing.  I call my representatives when I can.  I add my name to petitions.  I make art.  I dance.  And I send my positive energy into the world to help set a new course for myself and encourage others.

"Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how.  The moment you know how, you begin to die a little.  The artist never entirely knows.   We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark."
