postcards to Florida

.

I sent another batch of postcards on their way this morning.

This time they went to Florida, to encourage people to sign up to have their ballots mailed to them.

The easier it is to vote, the more people will vote.  Vote by Mail is a lot easier than getting oneself to a polling place (maybe finding a place to park), and then waiting in lines to vote.

apple pie

A somewhat messy but delicious piece of rustic apple pie from Zingerman's Bakehouse.  Mmmmmmmmmm.....

The pink color comes from the Paula Red apples they use, which are not peeled.

VOTE button

.

I can't remember why I took my VOTE button off my coat, at the end of 2018, but I did.  (Maybe because there were no offices up for election in my part of the world in 2019?)


Anyway, I have put it back on.  Now anyone who talks to me face-to-face has a chance to read it.

Becoming

.

Reading this book is like sitting down across a cozy cafe table from the nicest, smartest, most focused, most driven, most interesting person, and listening to her tell stories.  I learned a lot about recent history.  Recommended!



My mom liked to read biographies.  I bet she'd have enjoyed this one.

sunlight

Sunlight coming through mini-blinds, landing on a curvy chair.  Which is green.  Not sure why the phone camera decided to make the image gray.........

postcards

.

These are to encourage people to vote for Ammar Campa-Najjar in the primary for US Congress, California 50th.  He is endorsed by Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren, and Kamala Harris.



And a thank-you to a patriot.

a very important message


This message starts one way, then turns 180 and goes toward the light and the truth.  I wish this was on tv at least once every hour, on every channel, all day every day.  Because EVERY VOTE MATTERS.

I have taken up the cudgels again.

.

After a several-week break, I am taking up the cudgels again.  Yesterday my first 2020 batch of PostcardsToVoters went on their way to Florida, to encourage voters to sign up to have their ballots mailed to them.



Doing SOMETHING to help bend the arc of history towards justice makes me feel better!

This was our first glimpse of the sun for days and days.



Unfortunately, it clouded right back over, for yet another gray day.

how "big dogs" can change their behavior so little dogs can play, too

.

Here's a great article I read on The Daily Kos about how people with privilege can work toward helping make sure everyone is part of the conversation.

(He leads out talking about how big dogs change their behavior so they can safely play with little dogs, and says something to the tune of "As usual, we can be better if we try to be more like dogs."  :-)  )



Willard in 2008.  Not a big dog, but a good one.  :-)
