Now Playing Tracks

The last few weeks I have been visiting a family to get to know one of the kids. I will be baby sitting, and it’s only the second time he has ever had a baby sitter. The child is 20 months old. Now, I am not a mother, but something was said which blew my mind….. The mother informed me today that, “we don’t play outside. There are just too many snakes around here. And cactus.”

My heart really hurts for this kid. And the earth, how are we supposed to take care of the place we live, if we don’t come to know and care for it.?


Scathing street art highlighting scandals that have plagued the Obama Administration popped up in Silicon Valley during the president’s fundraising tour to California.

The first series of posters co-opted the logo of ABC’s Scandal while Obama met with donors at the home of showrunner Shonda Rhimes. Against a backdrop of references to scandals like NSA surveillanceDOJ seizure of AP phone recordsBenghaziIRS targeting of political groups, and more, the President’s face is captioned, “Don’t be an #asshole.”

Soon, more art appeared. A play on the classic iPhone ads shows Obama, silhouetted, and labeled “iSnoop.” And a mock invitation to “A Feast in Time of Plague” — Obama’s $32,000 per plate fundraiser — was delivered to the neighbors of the event’s host.
