It is now official--I am a RAGING GRANNY! Yup --the SeattleRaging Granniesheld a bake sale......
We made about $80 for the Friends of the Library.....and reminded folks passing by that we are in a senseless and wasteful war.....and that this coming year Seattle taxpayers will pay $370 million for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan about 100 times what we would need to avoid next year's cuts to Seattle's libraries.
If you want to know more about the Raging Grannies....check out their website: http://raginggrannies.org/
They are out in the streets promoting peace, justice, social and economic equality through song and humour.
I am proud to be a Raging Granny!

I am an artist who was born and grew up in Alaska, as did my mother--my grandfather was a gold miner. I am recently returned from serving in the US Peace Corps as a volunteer on the Island of Dominica in the Eastern Caribbean. Some of the tasks I did as a volunteer : I taught art at a primary school, helped the school with development projects, volunteered with a youth group, and volunteered helping to organize and produce a local literary festival. I also worked for over 20 years on commercial fishing boats in Alaskan waters and lived for over 18 years in the Alaskan "bush" with no electricity and no cars. Alaska has shaped my view of life and culture, but so has raising two daughters, a life of making art in many mediums, and owning my own Used and Rare Bookstore. I guess I am somewhat of a vagabond who has done many things in my life--deckhand on a fishing boat, bookseller, nanny, chef,
administrative assistant in a college
dean's office,mom (that is a job!) but I always come back to artist.
