Art is the Handmaid of Human Good

Life in Lowell, Massachusetts, USA

Sucked into a work vortex (aka a long update post)


Mmmmm, that’s where I’ve been. When I last posted I had just found out that we won at the Con Con. A week later and I still don’t know if I believe it. Last Thursday Gist and I went down to Boston for the party (some activists we are!) The party was a lot of fun and it was great to see and thank in person all of my former MassEquality colleagues. They, along with volunteers all deserve a great big “Thank you!” Here’s a picture of Scott and me, the Original Gangsta Development Team:
Yay Massachusetts!

On Sunday Jill & Jason came up to Lowell for a visit. We had some lunch at the Mambo Grille and then went to see the Kerouac “On the Road” Scroll. It was fun!
On the Road - Kerouac

Talking to Jill this weekend gave me the idea to post my Project 365 daily picture here every day with a small post about what happened on that day. I want to do it because one of the main purposes of this blog is for me to keep a record of my life but this week has just been too hectic. That’s a bit of what this post is trying to accomplish. Anyway… on to Monday.

On Monday I took some great pictures and I’ll let them speak for themselves:
Day 242 - Monday, June 18th 2007

On Tuesday Team ¡Arroz! came in second place – yay us! I also finished the straight rows on my clapotis – that means I am 2/3 of the way done – whaoo! Wednesday and Thursday were filled with work which brings us to today. Today is the start of a fun-filled four day weekend – yay! Pictures and posts will (hopefully) follow.
