Big changes in my life may be soon pressed upon me... While not inevitable, these changes are highly probable... Ergo, in anticipation, I shall press big and immediate changes upon this website and blog.     #prayfortheagentsofchange    

Location 444

  It seems I'm always seeing the number 444. According to the internet, it seems that I'm not alone in these frequent numerological sightings... Sometimes, it seems that things are not always as they seem... But usually they are.   #prayforthenumerologists

I fell in love with London in 2005. My heart yearns always to return to it... And aches presently from its pain.   #prayforlondon #resistthehate   From Monet's Houses of Parliament series courtesy of Wikipedia

The Coathangers

Back in the last millennium during the age of analog and airmail a buddy of mine used to subscribe to CMJ, a music magazine that with each monthly issue would include a "mixtape" CD (ah, CDs, back when life was much simpler and slower) jam packed with singles from new and up and coming bands. …

Shades of LOVE from Women’s March in Jakarta

This is an immensely powerful post celebrating determined women of determined personal and collective courage.

Please visit the clubPAW website and show them your support.



Our friends in Jakarta, Indonesia organized a women’s march this Saturday (4 March 2017) morning in front of the Presidential Palace. One of clubPAW authors participated in the march to witness LOVE in what was really the start of something historic in Jakarta. Not just that, now clubPAW has stories from some people we got the chance to talk to.

We at clubPAW believe that the women’s march movement that has shined like sunlight to many major and small cities globally signifies something larger; a hope. A hope that there many who are still persevering in the fight for equality and love. Nay-sayers will always be there and the only way to turn them to our side is by engaging in healthy dialogues and exchanging ideas. There will always be people who look down on our efforts but remember that good will does not expect anything in return. At least…

Sticking It To The Man: A Cultural Response





Actus Magazine

By Abigail Gilson 

There is a reinvigorated cultural response to the current political dysfunction on the rise. Artists from around the world have mobilised together to troll Trump by creating controversial protest paintings, sculptures, and murals- and they’re holding nothing back. There is no limit of political satire nor hues of orange in these depictions of the U.S president however their outright messages have provoked censorship across social media sites (so much for free speech, eh) and even the administration has threatened particular artists with litigation. Alas, all is not lost with this dose of cultural reassurance: here are five distorted versions of D.T that are sure to make protest-art great again.

What Will It Take?

I've lost several fb friends and many followers here because of my relentless fixation on Trump's autocratic aspirations and the similarities between his rise to power with Hitler's. I ain't gonna lie to you -- I've often in the past second-guessed myself and wondered if I, in fact, wasn't just being too alarmist and snowflake-like …

Transgender Community* Trumped by the Arc and Bent of Autocratic Politics

Politics in this country, while they have been expanding outward toward the wacky fringes leaving the mostly moderate radicals (the rarity of moderates these days …

But, alas, I cannot because I got it from this read-worthy #longread of an article written by John Feffer, a journalist and author who, with his read-worthy article, attempts to (in subtle sublimity) -- and in my …
