Sharing Harmonic Energy

I've been meditating a lot lately...and I've realized that it makes life a lot easier to just relax.
I've also realized that pretending to relax by putting pressure on yourself to relax is...well, unrelaxing.
All I need is my hook, yarn, and a pattern in my head to relax.

Speaking of hooks, yarn, and patterns I'm still building up an inventory of things to make. Thanksgiving is next week and you know what that means: Black Friday is the next day!! (Insert suspenseful music here)

But, seriously the holiday season is upon us! It tends to sneak up like that. Also, since I'm feeling so balanced and nice I'm trimming the edges of my prices if you order a set (Hat and scarf, hand warmers and hat, neck warmer and hand warmers, etc.) I also make trades.
Anyway, if I don't post again before Thanksgiving I hope everyone has a wonderful and fattening holiday!

Question 1: Maine's Defeat

Get ready, kids, I'm getting political.

I have been living in Maine officially for over a year and I've always loved it here...until now. As some of you know we have been in the middle of a furious battle over question 1: The ban on gay marriage. Well, I'm on the No on 1 side; the side that votes for equality. Sadly, as of last night we have lost. The bigots of Maine won.
I heard someone in class today discussing his point of view on what makes people gay. He said that being gay is a 'fetish' and that people aren't born that way. This guy is a theatre major; a theatre major who is AGAINST gay marriage because he grew up ignorant. This person will remain nameless...well either way I don't know his name...and I don't want to.
I grew up in a Catholic, conservative, homophobic family and I managed to come out of that independent, open minded, and yes LIBERAL. I struggled to find my independence and along the way I realized that there is more to the world than all of this oppressive garbage that gets filtered into our society every single day. Life in this country is going downhill very fast and I, for one am not going to stand for it much longer. This may seem like a rant and this may seem like some sort of liberal rambling, but it's not. It's a statement of our rights as humans to be free, equal, and proud of who we are as individuals.
To those of you who stand with me on this issue, let's give 'em hell.
Love to all you damn liberals; I'm right there with you.

Dang it, I skipped October!

How sad =(
Oh well, there are more pressing matters at hand!

For one: I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! Mine was very fun, but almost not safe because I wore heels. Never again.

For two: I'm working on YET ANOTHER script! It's called "Clutter" and it deals with failing romance, death, and awful ties.
I'm proposing it to be the spring show for the Student Performing Artists (SPA) spring show. If that doesn't pan out I'll just rent a space in the black box and we'll call it square.

For three: I'm also doing some writing for the USM Queer and Allied Youth Writing Project. If anyone is interested in coming to the meetings it's fun! AND you get to do some fun writing projects, act, and vent about people who aren't so nice. Like that guy who called you 'ma'am' instead of 'sir.' It's come on down!

For four (hehe): I am still taking orders for crotched items! Honestly, I don't think I'll ever stop taking orders...but you better act fast if you want your stuff ready in time for the holidays!

Anyway, that about raps it up for now. Stay classy, readers!
