Heads up! Bolivia is taking the lead on seriously dealing with the enviromental issues that concern ALL living things. Oh yes, Evo Morales is trying to do what failed so miserably in Copenhagen—create working relationships for truly addressing the pressing ecological realities of our time. Amy Goodman has taken the broadcast of Democracy Now! straight to Tiquipaya, Bolivia for coverage of the World Peoples’ Summit on Climate Change and Rights of Mother Earth. Evo Morales continues to do more than talk the talk–he seems to be walking the walk along with Bolivia’s UN Ambassador Pablo Solon. Check out Goodman’s coverage of this Summit and Bolivia’s other historical changes their people can believe in at —>

Are you watching the Amazon? If you’re a parent then you probably want a great place for your children to live and grow in. We’ve got one planet, Earth. If you saw Avatar then you already know a great deal about the issues in the Amazon that the Achuar people are facing. They’re just one group of people on the frontlines of knowing what’s going on with our planet’s health. Curious about the world in which we all live? Visit the Amazon and consider what’s at sake for all of us on Earth.
It’s April. It’s spring, the time of birth and rebirth. Let’s insure that Earth supports many many more springs with love and joy. Give all our children the gift of a healthy world to live in.

In the most unlikely places and at the most unexpected moments delightful surprises appear. Much to my wonderment on Saturday the still new “crepes on the square” was invaded by a mime troop. Much in opposition to popular belief, high school age young people can and do indulge in creative and interesting pursuits beyond the idiot boxes in such aboundance. Their high top black and white converse tennies were the first thing I noticed moving past as I relished my first bite of a banana & nutella crepe. Following those passing shoes upward I found the nearby table surrounded by six white gloved young mimes engaged in silent yet very animated conversation. It was impossible to resist making efforts at mime chat. Hence I discovered that some of the mimes have a band–yes–a band. “Dear Lucille” –yes, named in tribute to Lucille Ball. “Dear Lucille” plays 1940s & 1950s music. They claim their music is in the vein of Elvis. Who am I to argue with Lucy the Mime?
“Dear Lucille” features the talents of Lucy, Mikayla & Nobian. Oh and their lead singer goes by the name of Alexa Putnam.

Mimes: Lucy Ascentino, Mikayla Stuber, Nobian Henan, Austin Chapman, Kayleigh “Sherlock” Cox & Linnea Nierman. Heads up, Kansas City, they plan to invade the Plaza in two weeks.
