Human Banners on Beaches Spell RESIST!

February 13, 2017



On Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017,  me and a few thousand of my friends gathered at beaches in California and New Zealand to RESIST!

Yes RESIST! Which we spelled out with our bodies. With or without an exclamation point or an underline. In letters of either 50 feet or 100 feet in height.

Finding Comfort in Food & Wine

February 11, 2017


What comes to mind when you hear the term “comfort food?” When I think of comfort foods I typically think of the good ole USA. My mind conjures up southern classics such as chicken fried steak, fried chicken, and biscuits and gravy, or do you think Midwest pot roast, or perhaps a burger and fries? However, pizza, gnocchi, and Bolognese also feel like comfort food to me; as does roasted lamb, Beef Bourguignon, and coq au vin. It seems each culture’s cuisine offers its own expressions of comfort food. Today our #WinePW group is exploring comfort food and wine pairings.

Dr Aria Sabit and Seven Years Ago

February 5, 2017


Today, Super Bowl Sunday, February 5, 2017, Dr. Aria Sabit, 43, is in jail for fraud: on January 9, 2017, he was sentenced to prison for 20 years.

But seven years ago, on Friday February 5, 2010, Dr. Sabit was busy saving my husband’s life when he broke his neck doing a bicycle stunt during a rehearsal. (Read an account here).

It was just by chance that Dr Sabit was not only on-call at the hospital but he was in surgery when my husband arrived by ambulance with a broken C-2 also known as “the hangman’s break.” Read more…

Post 1800: On Being a Maker on the Prowl for that which Engages the Whole Soul

February 2, 2017


This post right here is quite a milestone: it marks 1800 posts here on Art Predator. With each one averaging 1000 words, that adds up to 1,800,000 or more total, right? And when you add the pages, well that’s about 2 million words! Wow!

If 100,000 words equals a 400 page book, then that means I’ve written the equivalent of 18-20 books since I started this blog back in November 2007 nearly ten years ago. That’s quite a lot.

Thank you for being a reader and a subscriber: for taking this journey with me as I’ve been on the prowl for that which engages the whole soul… from Burning Man to ecopsychology to politics to environmental problem solving and more. Read more…

Over 3 Million March for Justice: Now what?

January 24, 2017



I am one of those who couldn’t believe that the America I know and love could elect Donald Trump as President.

I am one of those who voted for someone else, someone who won the popular vote by more than 3 million but lost the electoral vote. 


I am also one of the over three million or more women, men, and children around the world who marched on Saturday, January 21, 2017 for women’s rights and justice for all.


Today I’m left with the reality that right now,

we’re in a fight for democracy.

On The End of the World As I Know It… and how to make a pussy hat!

January 19, 2017


Every four years the citizens of the United States chooses who will lead the country. It is a somewhat convoluted process of registering to vote, then actually being able to vote, followed by having those votes counted, then the winner of each state sends electors to actually select the winner who is then forwarded to Congress who seals the deal. At the end of it all, someone is inaugurated on January 20.


President Obama by Diane Bennett


In 2016, as everyone on the planet must know by now, former First Lady and Former Secretary pf State Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million over businessman and reality star Donald Trump. But because DT won more electoral votes in an election that has been called into question because of Russian influence, DT will be put in office tomorrow, and we will say good bye to President Obama.


Eight years ago was a cause of celebration in this house. My son asked to stay home from school so we could watch the inauguration together. We celebrated four years ago as well when we each wore these “The New Groove” shirts with Obama on them.

Tomorrow we are not celebrating.

We are mourning.
