Our round up of inspiration, opinions, ideas and resources... curated just for you.
(Links are embedded, click anywhere in the paragraph.)


Act and Follow- Activist & sociologist Gretchen Substack's blog. We  highly recommend you read her whole "October, Final Countdown" post. The list below is a very edited version of it with quick links to all the orgs and FEMALE federal and state congressional candidates she's vetted. 







  • Triple your vote. Sounds weird, but apparently it works!! Sign up here. (The power of texting...)

Dance- Dutch teenage sisters, Norah, Yarah and Rosa are dance phenoms. Whenever you need a little pick me up,  watch and revel in their talent, joy and a better future.


Music- Listen in to "We Insist" NPRs playlist of 2020 Protest Music  inspired by George Floyd and the subsequent uprising against police brutality, this will continue to be added to through the year.


Film- Enola Holmes, this just released  family friendly Netflix film  is a welcome girl powered respite. Milly Bobby Brown is the lil' sister of Sherlock Holmes, who goes to London in search of her missing mother. Loved watching this with my son, but would watch it on my own in heartbeat.


Read-"How to Fight" by Thicht Nat Hahn. The Zen Master really packs it in this tiny pocket sized book. His brief reflections/ meditations  teaches us  if we understand our  own suffering, we can then help and reach reconciliation between ourselves and even nations. Great tool, for calming one's rage, just sayin....


Spirit- Listen to Rev. Angel Kyodo Williams interviewed by Krista Tippet on "Why 2020 hasn’t taken the Rev. by surprise". Then listen to her original interview from 2018 and believe in a living prophet.


Fine Art Street Art- Mexican artist Victoria Villasana's mixed media portraits  revere progressive politicians, artists and activists with  color,  geometric patterns, yarn and textiles....OBSESSED.
