The World's Turned Upside Down

It's been a long time since I've written an entry on my blog. I've been feeling quite overwhelmed. Since I was in NY, so many things have happened to me and the rest of the world - it's hard to know where to begin or what to say.

Staten Island, New York, New Jersey, and the rest of the East Coast have been hit so hard. So many people have had their lives altered, lost possessions, and life.  Just about everything has changed - it's hard to go on about myself at the moment.

I try to make myself feel better about all the devastation by making small donations to:

Operation BBQ

To help feed people who have been displaced and have lost everything, and to feed the many people who have been out there working on restructuring neighborhoods, and helping where they can.

New York Cares

NY Cares, who are helping in every way to restructure areas that have been hardest hit - And who are having a Coat Drive - Please send gently used coats to them.


And our wonderful radio station WFMU that is now in need of repairs, and has still been broadcasting through hell and high water. I'm sure could use some donations as they got hit during their silent fundraiser.  I will be sending a watercolor to Brian Turner's show - that will be given as a prize during one of his future shows. So look out for that, and make donations!

Also It's been brought to my attention that there is this amazing Occupy Wall Street's 'Rolling Jubilee', which is an organization, a People's Bail Out from bad debt. What an amazing idea! Too many of us live in fear and oppression of bad debt. I love this and I think we should all band together to get out from under the financial institutions thumbs!!  Please look at this and donate to this project when you can:

Rolling Jubilee

The Peoples Bailout


I think I'll leave this post as is and write some good news along with my trials and tribulations in the next week or so.

Lots of love and wellness to everyone!
