updates, uplifts, and up endings

Update: I didn’t sell the tiny! I am working with a friend to keep it on property through this school year. This means that my house will be looked after and loved AND still mine! Hooray. More updates to come once the house is settled.

Uplifts: PLEASE support The Tiny House Warriors. They are an important example of how tiny houses can be a more direct refusal of extraction economies. The Tiny House Warriors are Secwepemc people who declare: “Our Land is Home is a part of a mission to stop the Kinder Morgan TransMountain pipeline from crossing unceded Secwepemc Territory. Ten tiny houses will be built and placed strategically along the 518 km TransMountain pipeline route to assert Secwepemc Law and jurisdiction and block access to this pipeline.” Using tiny houses to fight oil culture AND support First Nations’ sovereignty! MORE OF THIS PLEASE!!!!  Read more and support them here.

Up endings: Oregon is on fire, Houston is under water, Hurricane Irma is barreling toward me, followed by José. All seems so unbelievably transient, traumatized, anticipatory of more and more and more dire events. It upends me to think about the amount of life and beauty that has already been lost because of human greed and stupidity and violence. But:

In radical solidarity, April
