a few blocks from my house here on avenue c is a street named mars, when we were moving to this side of town a couple years back, I had hoped that there would have been a nice place for rent on mars. can you imagine what a hoot it would be when someone asked where you live and you could truthfully answer "I live on mars."
well, enough stream of consciousness silliness for this morning, time to go put some clean clothes in a suitcase. for the next week or so I'll be sofa surfing and living on the kindness of friends!
the mouse is on spring break. my travels conclude april 7th, so until then if anyone needs a dose of mouse medicine they will have to go to the archives! until then be kind and be well.
We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.
The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart.
Dorothy Day (1897-1980) social activist & co-founder of the catholic worker
a couple days ago I learned that dorothy day's daughter tamar day hennessey passed away on tuesday. this news was the catalyst for today's herstory honoree.
if you are interested in learning more about dorothy day, along with a host of written materials, I have heard there is a new documentary about her entitled "don't call me a saint." I missed the showing of the film when it was here in cleveland, but I just read that it is now available on dvd. it sounds most excellent. there is another movie about dorothy, which I thoughly enjoyed entitled "entertaining angels: the dorothy day story." this film was released in 1996 and stars moira kelly as dorothy and martin sheen as peter maurin. I ran across the film several years ago while perusing the shelves of my local library, I expect it should be easy to find.
