SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FOODAdvocates of Urban Agriculturehttp://auachicago.org/See the Statement for Local Food Economy (below) developed by Advocates for Urban Agriculture, BIG/Blacks in Green, and a growing coalition of supporters, to reinforce the importance of local and neighborhood-based investments at this prime moment for redefinition of the city’s and nation’s economic vision and policy.
Last week, mayors and CEOs convened in Chicago with Mayor Emanuel and the First Lady and announced the expansion of major retail companies, including Walgreens and Walmart, in neighborhoods of Chicago deemed “food deserts.”
Please read the Statement and consider adding your signature, with your org affiliation and/or ward number. Send your information as you would like it included to The most current version with additional signatures will continue to be updated on AUA’s website. BrilliantlyMad Collective is a proud supporter of these action items.
The Statement has been sent to the Mayor and First Lady, groups and lists, and interested members of the media. We ask you to send the Statement to your friends and allies, aldermen and policymakers, and to talk with them about it and our growing coalition.
Samhain - Where the End meets the Beginningby Liba Waring Stambollion
The Harvest is done
The New Year’s begun
Inward we go
Reaping all that we sow
The King has arrived on the ‘other’ shore
The King has arrived to open the Door
Life and Death stand out of Time
And thus the bells begin to chime
Empty is his lonesome tomb
He’s growing strong in Mother’s womb.
For the seed He planted in his Wife
Will now embody His new Life
Despite the longer Winter nights
Naught can extinguish His Loving Light
He wll rebirth on Winter Solstice
His Solar Heart renewed in Bliss.
New Moon is Wednesday, October 26 at 1:57PM Mountain Daylight Time. Do something to anchor something new. Honor the greater Turning Point of the collective. Celebrate the ending of something old and the beginning of something new! Remember about coming from compassion and be proactive with your own intentions and desires to unravel the knots that have held all of your old patterns and belief systems in place. If you are feeling stuck, do something symbolic to dissolve the energy such as being in water or take a sweat or a sauna. If you are feeling rootless, chaotic and scattered, you may want to find a quiet place and sit on the earth or a rock and feel the grounding energy of mother earth. And if things just do not make sense at this time, don't worry about it. Ask yourself if they make energetic or emotional sense, as not much may make intellectual sense. And always trust in spirit and the greater plan. This can be a truly magnificent time!
November is a major decision point. Astrological events on or about 11.11.11 indicate a point of no return. The planets are about to shift gears in a big way.Matters will escalate. Political, economic and psychological stuff will intensify, grow more confusing and, in a word overwhelming. Political discourse will become increasingly strident and violence will probably begin escalating. The economic situation only grows more complicated and uncertain. To get through this, we must decide who we are and where we stand.It might still be a little too soon to take action or expect results. Delays still frustrate. But we can no longer sit on the sidelines, or simply tread water. It is time to start deciding how we will answer the questions being raised, how we will meet the challenges confronting us. Events will compel us to make decisions and commitments.Click "read more" for full video and details on 11:11:11
