How do you know when to stop? Today’s combination came together quickly. Taking the photos, and choosing the lighting, making them look like what I had in mind, that took some time. This first one had the full seedlings “grow lights” on. I like the way the pinkness bleeds into the shadows, and the wrinkling of the linen. The second uses just natural light, and the weave of the linen is visible, but not the wrinkles so much.

I thought I was going to be done with fighting voter suppression after the Georgia run-off elections on January 5. I was really tired of phone banking, though very happy with the results of our work (and the work of many others around the country). I wanted to stop for a while and take a break. Ha, not a good idea.

GOP legislatures around the country quickly introduced a slew of voter suppression bills – thirty-three states have introduced 165 bills. So I’ve gone back to work, holding two phone banks a week. Right now we’re calling into Georgia, asking voters who voted by mail to call their state legislatures and let them know what they think. Arizona will be next. I believe it’s the price of democracy. I benefit from our form of government, so I need to fight for it. You can join me from anywhere around the country (or the world for that matter) on Zoom. I’ll train you, and get you going.

Some things are quickly done, others not.
