The confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education.
The U.S. Army's granting of a 30-year easement that will allow the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline to be completed.
The silencing of Senator Elizabeth Warren last night.
There is a pit in the bottom of my stomach.
Seeking refuge from the dark and oppressive storm that is raging in Washington, DC, I have invited some hope and sisterhood into my house today. I've invited the words of Coretta Scott King, the courage of Senator Elizabeth Warren, the frugality of my GrammieLowry, the inspiration of the quilters of Gee's Bend, the wisdom of the women of the Oceti Sakowin Camp and the company of my well-loved Bernina 1080.
I am inspired to RESIST BY MAKING....a very simple, utilitarian project that is infused with memory and strength.
Check back in a day or two to see what's been under my needle.
