*I will phone bank for Obama one more time on Monday. It's been a long journey from late 2007. But worth it to support a man w/integrity, authenticity, creativity and intelligence. Win or lose, I do not regret for one minute what I have done, however much it is a drop in the ocean. Many will be on pins and needles till this is decided. At the same time, I am working on a new song lyric chapbook. I would rather be creating that fighting politically or feeling highly anxious. Wouldn't we all?
*I am trying to change my role in the schools from helping out at the alternative school to doing talks and workshops on various topics. Fit my skills better, at this point. I will talk with the relevant administrator next week.
*It's a beautiful day in Asheville. I feel pretty good. Hope to get back to the Y as soon as possible. Church? I still resist it. But I meditate or contemplate every day and study the I Ching frequently. We all need something spiritual like that.
*I am focusing on grassroots creative work right now. By that I mean producing my own chapbooks and seeking independent bookstores where I can sell them, and craft fair, as well as open mics. I am tired of the agent and publisher rejections, but will peck away at that.
November 6. We are at a crossroads. We are in peril if we elect Romney and Ryan.
