This card was made by my son Isaac for Mother's Day. He used my headshot from 1981 to put on Mr. Smiths body! He included some of my favorite activist friends on the poster too! I have enough things to fight for right here in Livonia....I don't need to go to Washington, although I do write letters to everyone. Here is to saving a cool building!

A Blast from the Past

I made this drawing in 1981.I made it after visiting the Illinois State Capitol during the time they were voting on the Equal Rights Amendment. As you can see from the paper airplanes thrown from the balcony that I had opinions! Nothing has changed! Still fighting for justice!


This drawing was made at the same time. It is not a clear photo of the drawing (sorry!) It is a depiction of women on a hunger strike in the Illinois State Capital. These women were ready to risk their lives for the ERA. They were all very weak and thin. I will never forget them. Who would ever have thought that we are fighting again for reproductive rights, and that the ERA is still not law! It says Women Hunger for Justice.

TREEmendous Maple Photos Sampler

I am finishing up editing a book about the old sugar maple in the back of our yard. It has inspired many people with its resilience.

This is how it looked 23 years ago when we moved in.

This is looking up into the hollow core.

 I  heard a story on NPR about a woman that needed help with her English on an airplane flight and there was a stir on the plane. An Arabic man came to help and solved the language problem. The woman was so happy for her problem being solved that she took mamouls out of her bag and handed them out on the plane. He said it was the best airplane flight he ever had. These goodies are made in many cultures and religions....and they are fun to make.
