the revolution is lost by the idle revolters

Frustration. Back talking. Steps directly backwards. Unorganization. Nonconsensus. Loudness. Breathe....Calm... okay
Get this: is slowly coming back. When looking for links to put on there, I stumbled across my name mentioned in Pistil Mag's interview with Betsy Greer. It seriously couldn't have come at a better time.
Onward with the shameless selfpromotion
"When asked her favorite displays of craftivism, Greer responded: “Personally, I am still in awe of Patrice Lehocky’s quilts and Fundacion Solidaridad’s patchwork. They are both proof that resistance can be shown via craft [and] allow the viewer to take in the severity of the situation as well as the need to act.” These projects and others prove that crafting is more than just a passing hipster trend the Urban Outfitters–soaked consumer media would have us believe. It is a way of actively taking part in a very real, palpable way and a necessary step in the activist world. Through craftivism one person—or many—can make a difference, stitch by stitch."
Although most likely backdated, it was an amazing coincidence to find it this morning. It brought a little smile to my face, mainly in the fact that things always manage to have little unexpected twists.
