Then after seeing the millions of people who marched yesterday, virtually everywhere in the world, I'm feeling glimmers of hope for our collective situation. It's not going to be pretty, and damage to life as we knew it had already begun not one hour after "that deal" got sealed. But I have some degree of confidence that collectively we might be able to stem the tide of the worst of what's to come. That's what I'm praying for, anyway.
The only ways to get through these increasingly tough times are through activism and art. I'm not much of an activist at this point, but I'm surely not going to give up on my art. Especially with the likely destruction of the NEA (National Endowment for the Arts), now is the time for all us indy and outsider artists to make ourselves heard in all ways possible. Making art just might save our lives.
Because life on earth is now in retrograde...
