It's Been a While

I have been in full tilt crazy busy mode since Wednesday that began with a DBI inspection of my building as it is transformed from TIC to condo (good news for me, albeit with fees, inspectors peeking into closets and cabinets, and a lot of repairs). Thursday I made a quick day trip to a memorial for a 92-year-old donor who was an amazing, liberal spirit, having campaigned for Upton Sinclair in the 1930s as a college student.

This weekend I have been speaking at screenings of the new Sundance documentary Flow: For Love of Water. It's definitely worth checking out. To date I've not talked much about my work life here but am rethinking that. I've thought about launching a parallel site for that and maybe one for Guru. But, well, there's not that much time in a day.

Check out Flow here and consider signing Article 31 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It takes two seconds, and it could be your contribution to saving a life halfway across the globe. Go here to sign on.

thanks for the head's up on both the documentary and the petition site. a very, very important issue. I've signed the petition and will help spread the word!

it's always good when a little bit of your work sneaks onto your blog.

congrats on the building transformation....

the donor sounds like he/she was an amazing individual! there's a 'work story' I'd be interested in reading more about!

take care and SEE YOU SOON!!

Mouse - Thanks for spreading the word. It opens in Cleveland in October, and we plan to have a presence there. One of my "minions" as you call them will likely be there and you can meet her. Looking forward to the meet up.

WAT - Done blame me, the issue was started by others. A rich Canada isn't such a bad thing.

Hey Gregg!
I'll admit now that I'm a longtime stalker. I'll be a bit less creepy about it now that you know I exist!

Funny how I hate stalkers on my blogs, but I get all stealth on everyone else's

Lora - Stalk away! Just no unflattering tabloid photos of me on the beach or coming out of a sleazy bar.
