less than a day out of country

Tonight I spoke at the people and the planet conference, on taking the work home, is mother earth black and other topics. I sang wade in the water to open, the most appropriate song I know of for these times. My copanelist was willie nolan, first nations african and white woman from nova scotia and sole person of color on the scc board. Deep woman, an honor to share an eco-justice stage with.

A few hours later at the event to honor the marvelous elizabeth may, 17 year director of sierra club canada and incubator of the sierra youth coalition who is now going to run for green party lead on the path to prime minister, I ended up on a stage with elizabeth singing a tipsy heartfelt amazing grace. A lovely 18 hrs in ottawa! Now off to my platonic ex-husbands wedding in downtown ny!
