No GMOs!



Sorry I have not been posting here in awhile- I've been pretty busy (as you can see from this video!).
Will be posting some neat stuff very soon.

If GMOs in our food supply is troubling to you (it should be) I hope you will check out our other new blog- Hudson Valley for No GMOs and join us on FB GMO? OMG! Hudson Valley for No GMOs.

The tide is turning. People are waking up to the dangers of GMOs and insisting that our food be labeled like it is in most industrialized nations! If this is new to you, hope you will do some research. What is more important than what we feed ourselves and our families? We have the power and it is time to use it.

Hope this finds you well and happy.

International Women's Day 2013 - SUNY New Paltz, NY



"When women's rights are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back!"

Women are rising up all over the world to demand an end to violence against women and for equal work, equal pay, equal choice and equal rights!  


At this commemoration of the 102nd anniversary of International Women's Day, 225 braved a freak snowstorm in New Paltz, NY to hear informative and inspirational speakers, hear great music and poetry and share in the good energy of people; female and male, young and old, black and white, and from all backgrounds, coming together to take a stand for women's rights!

The event was part of a nationwide action initiated by W.O.R.D.- Women Organized to Resist and Defend. Visit this new "grassroots, feminist organization dedicated to building the struggle for women's rights and equality for all" at http://defendwomensrights.org/.

Read more about the event, including summaries of some great speeches and a list of our 55(!) sponsors- http://activistnewsletter.blogspot.com/2013/03/03-14-13-activist-newsletter.html They included New Paltz Women in Black, a group I am a proud member of, the NY Civil Liberties Union, Hudson Valley Labor Federation, Amnesty International (mid-Hudson), Progressive Academic Network (SUNY), Ulster County Democratic Women and many. many more. Such widespread support is an acknowledgment of the fact that although we have come far in advancing women's rights, we still have far to go. It is also a response to the current reactionary forces that would take away our basic rights and our collective determination to not let that happen.

Thanks to the Mid-Hudson Activist Newsletter, especially to Donna Goodman, for organizing, to all who took part and to all who braved a snowstorm to attend! Hope you enjoy the video.

The Angels Are among Us


The Angels are among us.  They are all around you if you but open your eyes to See them.  They are the people around you with their Light on and with Love flowing from their Hearts.  They are the tears you cry when you weep with Compassion at what may be happening in your own Life or the Lives of others.  They are the ones who show you kindness when the kindness has left your own Heart.  They are the Atlas that holds the weight of the World on their shoulders and they are the Atlas that is the Roadmap to Salvation.  They have their hand out for you to grab hold of when you lose your way.  They are the children in our schools who are bullied for being different but stay strong anyway.  They are your children who you tuck into bed every night hoping that the world will be a better place for them when they grow up.  They are the Soldiers and the Firefighters and the Peacekeepers and the Teachers.  They are the sliver of Light you See in your darkest hour.  They are the people who See the Beauty in Life and have learned to look at things with the Good Eye.  They are the Healers and the “psychics” and the Witches and the Goddess of the Moon.  They are the people who inspire you every day on every level.  They are the people who know that to Truly Forgive you must Forgive YOURself first.  They know we are ALL  Clean in God’s eyes and hold no grudges for we know not what we do without Him.  They are the writers who speak to your Heart and Soul.  They are the drama kings and queens who aren’t afraid to show emotion.  They are the artists who show us all of the brilliant colors and see the wondrous Gifts our Mother has provided us.  They are the farmers who grow the food we eat because they care.  They are the people who take time out of their day to give you a smile when you forgot how.  They are the marital artists and yogis who have mastered the Mind/Body connection.  They are the bloggers who gently nudge you from your deep slumber.  They are the people who place Value on the status of Life instead of value on the status of money.  They are the people who bond with Mother Earth whether it’s on the ski slope or in the garden.  They are the Tribal Elders and the Shamans.  They are the ones you go to for advice and the people who always listen when you need an ear.  They are the Lightworkers who Light the path and the channelers who bring you the “news”.  They are the addicts and alcoholics whose Hearts are wounded from the harshness of this World because they don’t know how Worthy they are of Love.  They are those who have Loved and lost and Lived to Love again.  They are the musicians who play beautiful music that speaks to each of us in a different way.  They are the people who are trying to make a difference in the World and wouldn’t have it any other way.  They are the sentimental people whose Hearts break when they don’t See Kindness or Compassion.  They are the Creators of their Universe and Live by the Universal Laws.  They are the people who never fail to say “Thank You” for everything that comes their way – good or bad.  They are the miracles that happen in your day no matter how big or small.  They are all around you and they are waiting to be of service in your hour of need.  They are the ones who suffer so we will See including the ones who are dying so that we may Live.  They are above you just waiting for you to ask for their assistance so they may fly to your side.  They are watching you and standing by.  They are the wayshowers who can show you how.   The veils have thinned and are getting thinner and they will arrive in force as they are awakened to their calling.  They are everywhere and they will be taking over, slowly at first but ever faster.  They are there if you need them, you have but to ask.    Do you know one?  Do you See them?  Could you be one?  YES…
