~I want to break chains, crash from cages, rise up, & save the world–Kim Sisto Robinson
Favorite Essays: because, well, they’re superbly, wonderfully brilliant:
Favorite Long Last Meeting: We’ve known one another for 10 years through ‘writing,’ and connected deeply about the world and how we desired to change it. Finally, we met in Napa for wine and conversation. Simply beautiful, Elizabeth Cassidy! You were exactly what I expected!
Check out her little love letters / Peaceful Revolution Cards!
Favorite Book: The Handmaid’s Tale (O.M.G. was created after this book was written!)
I wish this story were different. I wish it were more civilized. I wish it showed me in a better light, if not happier, then at least more active, less hesitant, less distracted by trivia. I wish it had more shape. I wish it were about love, or even about sunsets, birds, rainstorms, or snow…but I’m sorry, there is so much pain in this story.—The Handmaid’s Tale
You know how some books resonate, grab you by the organs, twist your stomach into knotted fists? This book accomplished that for me, and when this happens, I want to shout out to the world, I want to stand up and scream, “Read This!” I want to write to the author and say, “Teach Me! Teach Me!”
“People keep comparing this hike to Cheryl Strayed’s WILD. Stop it. This is not her story, her adventure, her experience; it is MINE.” —Trish Sisto
Trish Sisto is hiking the Appalachian Trail and you could say I’m living vicariously thru her and lovin’ every minute of it. ( Could I do it?
Hell, yes. NOoooo WAaaaaY.
She will be hiking 6 months and oh, did I mention, over 2000 miles of rough terrain!
btw, all the money raised goes to domestic abuse survivors and their children

Favorite Beat Movement Poet, Jack Kerouac: I love this man, his voice, his rhythm, his face, the piano playing softly in the background, & the Beat Movement Revolution.
