on the verge

of october, and deep in my own anniversary, reflecting on one year as a new orleans returnee.
I read over some of my writings from last september and october and the first thing I notice is the sleep issues. I very rarely have trouble sleeping at night anymore, or with waking up freaked out at the crack of dawn.
I'm also ready to get ready for the bookfair.
and decide on a halloween costume.
and putter around in my kitchen, baking good things to eat.
I'm pretty okay.
a million things are broken and wrong and outrageously unjust, but still, I'm okay.

"I don't believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is so
vertical. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal.
It respects the other person and learns from the other. I have a lot to
learn from other people." - Eduardo Galeano

it was one year ago yesterday that the common ground health clinic was founded, in the form of a first aid station that quickly evolved and continues to do so.

last week I went to the aquarium for the first time since I don't know when; at least a year. it was weirdly empty of people but I guess that shouldn't be suprising in the here and now. anyway, the kids got into it. heh heh.
