Amazing read in honor of MLK Day. True and harrowing story of the very last slave brought from Africa interviewed by the iconic American essayist/folklorist/novelist Zora Neale Hurston.
It is my birthday and I have the flu—but that won't stop me from celebrating with a facebook fundraiser for LIDÈ Haiti! To make it extra special, @holidayreinhorn and I will match every donation that comes in today. [link in bio] LIDÈ now serves over 800 girls in 13 rural locations accross Haiti. Getting to these rural locations takes a toll on our three trucks, which are vital for getting our teachers and supplies (and students in the case of BSEIPH, our differently-abled program) to our program sites. Tires and vehicle maintenance are one of our biggest expenditures, and a current necessity, so all the money raised today will help ensure safe and reliable transportation for LIDE staff and participants.

The year was 2004. The movie SAHARA was shooting in Morocco. I had a scene where Rudi Gunn was escaping the bad guys by hiding in a truck filled with goats. What they didn’t tell me? When goats get scared, which is pretty much all the time, THEY PEE!!!! So every take the truck would start up and peel away from the border guards, the goats would start bleeting and peeing, bleeting and peeing. We did about 8 takes. By the end, I was awash in a sea of goat urine, which would slosh back and forth as the truck drove bathing me in a tsunami of petting zoo piss.

The sun auroras the beautiful @HolidayReinhorn on the banks of our favorite river in the whole entire world, the Metolius. Here’s to the river and what it brings and where it leads. #light #love #forests #winter

#Repost @lidehaiti ・・・ “Women of Haiti” by Junia Elisca (written at age 17) We, women of Haiti We need courage We need to use our spirits, so we can reclaim our lives We need to take more action We need this courage because they say women cannot lead What we need is the courage to say back to them, "no" women can lead. What we need are our spirits We need our spirits when they say to us, “Women cannot do what men do; they can’t drive a tractor.” We must find in our spirits the voice to say, “no, women can drive one too” Men have hands, women have hands too. Men can learn, women can learn too. Men have memories, Women have memories too. We must be strong when they are saying, “men are stronger.” Men go to school, the women also attend school, Men have knowledge We must grasp hold of the same knowledge. We must know our rights, Do not put it in your head that men have more value than we have.

#Repost @lidehaiti ・・・ Jwaye Nwel! This Christmas, we are thankful for the gifts of resiliency through creative writing. Through writing their inner hopes, dreams and feelings, our students promote their own well-being, flexible thinking and connection to something bigger than themselves. Writing offers a chance to access their unique purpose. This video of a creative writing session was captured by filmmaker and director Sally Bentley and cinematographer Quinn Benson at our Souvenance program site.
