As Hurricane Sandy approaches the city, New Yorkers gathered in Times Square to send our politicians and the media a message:
End the climate silence. Connect the dots between extreme weather and climate change.

It was a bit disquieting to visit Zucotti Park tonight (12/01/11) and witness how OWS had been all but erased, with barely a trace that it had ever been there. Aside from small massed huddles of people maybe totaling 35 that, in other contexts, might be seen as fanatical groups advocating for this or that cause, you wouldn’t know that the park recently hosted thousands of frustrated protesters.
Instead, the park now glimmers and gleams with thousands of little lights ostensibly capturing the spirit of the season. For me, there is something enchanting about lights in trees. However, since these particular lights have replaced what was there from 09/17/11-11/15/11, and represent the conspicuous consumption that is generally antithetical to the tenor of OWS, it was difficult to enjoy them.
I’d just love to be able to visit a place with a view like this…is this setting the bar low for a life goal?

I took this photo in NYC last year. To me it says, one of us chooses to sit here, while the other has nowhere else to go. One is black, the other is white. One wears Chanel, while the wears rags. They share the same country, the same street, the same gender, and nothing else. #therebutforthegraceofgodgowe

Striking. I see this every day, but still, striking.
