Cialis alternatives One of these days, cialis alternatives I’ll get back to blogging here regularly. Cialis alternatives Meantime, cialis alternatives please do subscribe to the VINE Sanctuary blog, cialis alternatives to which I do continue to contribute regularly. Cialis alternatives I’ve got a series on veganic gardening going on over there now, cialis alternatives inspired by the past popularity of that topic on this blog.
Cialis alternatives Oh! and, cialis alternatives I’ve got a new book out. Cialis alternatives That’s what I said last night, cialis alternatives some way into a long talk with an old friend. Cialis alternatives And it’s true: The Oxen at the Intersection: A Collision has just been released in both paperback and ebook editions. Cialis alternatives After I turned it in to the publisher, cialis alternatives I kept forgetting that I had written it. Cialis alternatives And, cialis alternatives now that it’s out, cialis alternatives I keep forgetting to tell people about it. Cialis alternatives And that’s a shame, cialis alternatives because the author’s portion of the proceeds go not to me but to VINE Sanctuary.
Cialis alternatives So, cialis alternatives please do me (and the sanctuary) a favor and pick it up. Cialis alternatives If you like it, cialis alternatives please mention it on your own blog or other social media.
Cialis alternatives What’s it about? Let’s call it a case study in calamity, cialis alternatives in the course of which I try to demonstrate a method of thinking through the ways that social, cialis alternatives psychological, cialis alternatives and material (economic and ecological) forces combine to set up the situations in which animals are exploited.
Cialis alternatives How do I feel about it? We’ll see. Cialis alternatives Early reviews suggest that I succeeded in making it engaging. Cialis alternatives But only time can tell whether my aim of sparking more careful, cialis alternatives intersectional, cialis alternatives and situational thinking among activists will have been achieved.
Viagra for teens Good news for chimps this week! I just wrote a long post about that over on the VINE Sanctuary blog, viagra for teens but instead of feeling upbeat, viagra for teens I feel a combination of reeling heartsickness and sober determination.
Viagra for teens The problem—and it’s not really a problem—is these two websites:
Viagra for teens If you visit and spend some time with them (which I hope you will do), viagra for teens I won’t have to explain.
Viagra for teens But let me explain: Each of these websites lists, viagra for teens by name, viagra for teens chimpanzees who were or are now locked down in vivisection labs undergoing behavioral or biomedical experimentation. Viagra for teens Compiled by Wesleyan University professor (and Ethics and Animals author) Lori Gruen, viagra for teens both sites bear witness to animal experimentation. Viagra for teens The first profiles—in almost unendurable detail—the first one hundred chimpanzees utilized in institutionalized research in the United States. Viagra for teens We see their names, viagra for teens their dates and places of birth and death, viagra for teens and the names and fates of their offspring. Viagra for teens We see their photos and learn what was done to them.
Viagra for teens The second site looks forward to the event we seem to be moving toward—the release of chimpanzees from research labs to sanctuaries. Viagra for teens That site lists the names, viagra for teens where known, viagra for teens of what we hope will be the last one thousand chimpanzees exploited in this way. Viagra for teens That site also lists where each of those still captive is held, viagra for teens with the bright spots being the stripes of green for those who already have been retired to sanctuary. Viagra for teens For those still captive… we know where they are, viagra for teens we sometimes know who they are, viagra for teens but we do not know what anguish they may be enduring right now.
Viagra for teens I feel… No, viagra for teens I don’t want to try to tell you what these websites lead me to feel. Viagra for teens I want you to visit them and have your own feelings. Viagra for teens Go.
What color is viagra I’m supposed to be blogging for VINE Sanctuary right now. What color is viagra Instead I find myself sitting in seething stillness, what color is viagra wondering what to say. What color is viagra Lou is dead—disappeared in the middle of the night. What color is viagra A man who only days ago referred to Lou and Bill’s impending slaughter as “processing” now wants us to believe him when he says that Lou was euthanized and buried in an undisclosed location.
What color is viagra Maybe it’s true. What color is viagra Maybe Lou—who was seen walking easily in a pasture only hours before—really did suffer such a drastic deterioration due to a minor leg injury that a veterinarian decreed that treatment would be useless and life too painful to bear. What color is viagra Maybe this deterioration really did occur in the middle of the night, what color is viagra when an ox would usually be lying down asleep rather than up and evidencing deterioration of a leg injury. What color is viagra Maybe somebody just happened to be in the barn when that happened. What color is viagra Maybe that somebody called a vet and maybe that vet was willing to come out in the middle of the night rather than prescribing pain medication pending a morning examination. What color is viagra Maybe that vet really did both recommend and implement euthanasia for humane purposes and by humane methods. What color is viagra And maybe somebody with a backhoe came out in the middle of the night to dig a big enough grave for a 1, what color is viagra000lb ox in that undisclosed location.
What color is viagra All of that’s not beyond the realm of the imaginable, what color is viagra but it’s all very unlikely. What color is viagra Especially the backhoe.
What color is viagra Because here’s something I know: Digging graves for cows takes planning. What color is viagra At the sanctuary, what color is viagra we dig a few—just in case—before the ground freezes over in the winter. What color is viagra Even when the weather is mild, what color is viagra you have to call somebody to come with the backhoe to dig the grave. What color is viagra They usually don’t rush right over, what color is viagra and I have a hard time imagining somebody willing to do the deed in the dark, what color is viagra when it would be awfully hard not only to dig the hole but also to accurately lower the body into it.
What color is viagra This is all about bodies.
What color is viagra Here’s what I think: This killing was planned for the dead of night and had nothing to do with Lou’s condition.
What color is viagra Here’s what I think: No veterinarian was involved.
What color is viagra Here’s what I think: Either the secret grave was dug in advance or he’s not in a grave but at a rendering plant.
What color is viagra Here’s what I think: They had to haul him alive—alone and possibly in pain—to the site of the grave, what color is viagra if indeed there is a grave.
What color is viagra And then they killed him how?
What color is viagra This is all about bodies.
What color is viagra Here’s what I know: While vets don’t usually come out in the middle of the night, what color is viagra that’s exactly when animals are trucked to slaughter.
What color is viagra It’s also when people tend to be disappeared. What color is viagra Authorities or death squads come in the middle of the night and nobody sees them again.
What color is viagra When governments disappear people, what color is viagra it’s usually with the wish that, what color is viagra in so doing, what color is viagra they can disappear dissent.
What color is viagra My guess is that the authorities at Green Mountain College hope to do something similar and more.
What color is viagra My guess is that the authorities at Green Mountain College want the controversy that has engulfed them to just go away and they think that making Lou just go away will make that happen.
What color is viagra But the controversy will not go away. What color is viagra Everybody knows, what color is viagra now, what color is viagra that Green Mountain College schools liberal arts students in a particularly callous variety of supposedly sustainable agriculture. What color is viagra Everybody knows, what color is viagra now, what color is viagra that Green Mountain College faculty are willing to disseminate the most ludicrous arguments in service of their simulation of sustainability. What color is viagra Everybody knows, what color is viagra now, what color is viagra that students and faculty at the extremely insular Green Mountain College—like the subjects in some 1970s social psychology experiment—are particularly susceptible to groupthink, what color is viagra conformity, what color is viagra and obedience to authority.
What color is viagra And everybody knows, what color is viagra now, what color is viagra that–all of those hamburgers?–they’re all Lou. What color is viagra Or Bill. What color is viagra They’re not just some body, what color is viagra they’re somebody.
What color is viagra Why were the authorities so reluctant to show mercy to Bill and Lou, what color is viagra insisting that they must be made into hamburger? Could it be that, what color is viagra then, what color is viagra they would have to ask themselves: Why show mercy only to them? Why not show mercy to all of the animals we subject to needless suffering so that we can enjoy the brief sensory pleasure of a particular flavor or texture?
What color is viagra If they think that, what color is viagra by disappearing Lou, what color is viagra they can disappear that question, what color is viagra they are even more mistaken than they were when making illogical arguments in favor of slaughter. What color is viagra The question will not go away. What color is viagra The ghost of Lou will make sure of that.
What color is viagra But since this really is all about bodies, what color is viagra we should be thinking about how to bring our own bodies more fully into struggles like this. What color is viagra We erred, what color is viagra maybe, what color is viagra in going along with the Green Mountain College tactic of distancing themselves from the deaths they perpetrate by means of endless rational argumentation. What color is viagra So much of this struggle was conducted online, what color is viagra in the most disembodied fashion imaginable and mostly in the realm of logic rather than emotion. What color is viagra What might we have done instead? That’s the question that won’t disappear for me.
What color is viagra
What color is viagra
Which is better viagra cialis Folks, which is better viagra cialis if you’ve not been following the saga of Bill and Lou, which is better viagra cialis please head over to the VINE Sanctuary blog to catch up and learn what you can do. Which is better viagra cialis In brief, which is better viagra cialis these two oxen have labored for Green Mountain College for ten years, which is better viagra cialis yoked to plow fields or generate electricity.
Green Mountain College cruelty--yes, which is better viagra cialis that's a whip!
Which is better viagra cialis Lou developed a recurring injury—recurring because the college kept trying to work him as soon as it showed improvement–and can no longer handle that heavy labor. Which is better viagra cialis Bill won’t work with anybody else. Which is better viagra cialis So, which is better viagra cialis the college decided that the most humane and environmentally sound way to treat these two animals–beloved school mascots who the school called members of the farm team–would be to slaughter them and use their grisly meat in hamburgers at the school cafeteria.
Which is better viagra cialis Some people on campus were upset by this decision and, which is better viagra cialis having been steamrolled by peer pressure on campus, which is better viagra cialis turned to a local animal rights group, which is better viagra cialis Green Mountain Animal Defenders, which is better viagra cialis who contacted VINE Sanctuary—which immediately called the college to offer the oxen a permanent retirement home free of charge. Which is better viagra cialis Since the decision had previously been between (1) killing them, which is better viagra cialis (2) paying for their care, which is better viagra cialis or (3) selling them off to an uncertain fate, which is better viagra cialis this should have led to a reconsideration of the decision.
Me greeting Luna on her first day at the sanctuary... Which is better viagra cialis Hope I can greet Bill soon!
Which is better viagra cialis Instead the college refused the offer and commenced to stonewall, which is better viagra cialis offering an ever-changing and often contradictory set of reasons why the animals must be killed in order to abide by the campus commitments to sustainability and animal welfare. Which is better viagra cialis No, which is better viagra cialis you didn’t read that wrong. Which is better viagra cialis Sometimes, which is better viagra cialis they say that killing Bill—who has no injuries—at a slaughterhouse rather than via euthanasia—would be best for him… because the transition to a sanctuary would be just too emotionally difficult. Which is better viagra cialis More often, which is better viagra cialis they say that these animals must not be allowed to consume any more resources now that they cannot labor on behalf of humans.
Which is better viagra cialis Again, which is better viagra cialis you can read all about it on the VINE Sanctuary blog. Which is better viagra cialis At this point, which is better viagra cialis we’ve appealed to the college Board of Trustees, which is better viagra cialis but we still need people to take action, which is better viagra cialis so please do express yourself to the college—especially if you are an environmental activist or a scholar in any field. Which is better viagra cialis Tell the Provost and the President how such specious arguments (and such a callously cruel action) undermine the college’s academic credibility, which is better viagra cialis especially in the areas of environmental ethics and animal studies—both of which they pride themselves on.
Which is better viagra cialis And—please—sanctuary cofounder Miriam Jones and I met in the context of disability rights activism, which is better viagra cialis so this is particularly important to us: Please explicitly tell the college that killing the elderly and disabled is not an ethical way to decrease resource usage by a population. Which is better viagra cialis If they are truly concerned by the environmental impact of farmed animals, which is better viagra cialis they should quit breeding and buying animals and join us in the quest to develop a truly sustainable agriculture that can feed the world without wrecking the planet.
Viagra movies Ever since I moved back to the sanctuary, viagra movies I’ve been fascinated by insects. Viagra movies Don’t get me wrong: I’ve always appreciated them. Viagra movies But something about moving to a place where the insects are unfamiliar to me (and visit regularly) has heightened my awareness of the many charms of Arthropoda.
Viagra movies Far from the light pollution of the city, viagra movies nights are dark up on Slate Mountain, viagra movies as we call the part of the sanctuary also known as “up the hill.” Often, viagra movies the light over the writing desk in the Airstream is the only artificial illumination in sight. Viagra movies Moths and other night-flyers flock to the brightness. Viagra movies Delicate creatures in infinite shades of green wander among the words whenever I read a book by lamplight. Viagra movies Giant-sized jet-black jumpers drop in and then out again, viagra movies as if on the way to or from some intergalactic disco.
Viagra movies I haven’t been in a hurry to learn the names that people have for these creatures, viagra movies not wanting to undermine the awe-inspiring mystery. Viagra movies Nonetheless, viagra movies I did feel compelled to figure out why these caterpillars were making me itch.
Hickory Tussock Moth Caterpillar (photo: Brookhaven National Laboratory)
Viagra movies Turns out that the hairs of these caterpillars, viagra movies which feed on the beech trees under which I write, viagra movies dropping onto my neck regularly, viagra movies can cause allergic reactions—for me, viagra movies just a brief, viagra movies mild itchy-prickly sensation. Viagra movies Why? Because these insects absorb toxic chemicals from the plants that they eat, viagra movies and then secrete those chemicals through their hairs as a deterrent to those who would eat them.
Viagra movies All of which brings me to the original subject of this post: the heretofore unsuspected solar capabilities of western boxelder bugs. Viagra movies Evidently, viagra movies these bugs use sunshine to synthesize chemicals that protect them from fungi. Viagra movies This hit the headlines (or, viagra movies at least, viagra movies the geek headlines) last weekend, viagra movies due to the publication of a new study, viagra movies the methodology of which (deep sigh) appears to have involved removing these “highly gregarious” insects to a laboratory, viagra movies rather than studying them unobtrusively in situ. Viagra movies These beseiged bugs, viagra movies whom so many people seek to exterminate, viagra movies turn out to do something no other animal is known to be able to do. Viagra movies This is not to say they are more worthy of respect for that reason (and certainly not to say that we ought to be interfering with them in order to discover the secrets of their success in this).
Boxelder Bug (photo: Wikimedia Commons)
Viagra movies Boxelder bugs are, viagra movies however, viagra movies excellent exemplars of the solar-energized biological creativity that we call life. Viagra movies My point is simply that, viagra movies so often, viagra movies we know not what we do as we try to force nature to fit our fantasies, viagra movies such as the notion that boxelder bushes are good and boxelder bugs are bad. Viagra movies Our awe is as insufficient as our pride is excessive.
Viagra movies I remember one day in my garden in Ypsilanti, viagra movies where I took care to let the so-called “weeds” flourish anywhere they wouldn’t menace the vegetables. Viagra movies I was walking around in my steel-toed boots, viagra movies making some decision or another, viagra movies when I suddenly became aware of myself as I must have seemed to any insects or other small animals in the vicinity: a clueless behemoth trampling everything. Viagra movies I often return to the instructive sensation of that moment.
Viagra movies Yes, viagra movies I know that squirrels and some birds also plant the seeds of their favored plants. Viagra movies And, viagra movies yes, viagra movies I know that other, viagra movies larger, viagra movies animals sometimes inadvertently trample smaller beings. Viagra movies I’m not saying it was wrong for me to plant squash or walk around. Viagra movies I am saying that—just as the smiles or frowns of other people can encourage us to keep on recycling or turn down the radio—the reactions of other animals could, viagra movies if we heeded them, viagra movies offer useful guidance.
Viagra movies So it seems—I didn’t know that’s where I was going; that’s the joy of blogging—I am arguing, viagra movies yet again, viagra movies for a wider conception of community. Viagra movies And I notice that, viagra movies yesterday, viagra movies I was talking about seeing animals while today I am talking about being seen by them.
Hens sunbathing at the sanctuary shortly after escaping an egg factory
Viagra movies But back to the train of thought that prompted me to start writing this post. Viagra movies I hesitate to mention this, viagra movies not want to give the mad scientists any ideas for experiments, viagra movies but I wonder if birds who sunbathe for similar purposes also release chemicals energized by the sun. Viagra movies Chickens sunbathe to synthesize vitamin D and also to solarize harmful microbes. Viagra movies It can be quite a shock to see them at it, viagra movies because they sprawl in contorted positions in order to expose the undersides of their wings and places where the sun doesn’t usually shine.
Viagra movies I use the term “mad scientist” advisedly. Viagra movies I read New Scientist magazine regularly, viagra movies and I notice that its editors seem persistently confused about the beliefs of those of us who critique genetic engineering or wonder whether space exploration is a legitimate priority. Viagra movies I consider it useful to separate mad scientists from the legions of scientists who, viagra movies like me, viagra movies value the methodical collection of evidence to support or refute hypotheses and theories. Viagra movies In my view, viagra movies the defining features of mad scientists are (a) hubris, viagra movies and (b) over-reliance on the intellectual and practical tactic of isolation. Viagra movies What I mean by the latter is this: It’s certainly possible to sometimes learn something useful by studying or thinking about a variable in isolation, viagra movies but the presumption that such abstracted experimentation is the sine qua non of science leads to to a stunting of the capacity to think relationally or even see the inherent limitations of methodologies that break into ecologies, viagra movies often producing skewed results due to the very act of isolation.
Viagra movies Mad scientists release genetically engineered organisms, viagra movies presuming—due to hubris—that they can do a better job than nature and that there couldn’t possibly be any negative consequences that they, viagra movies with their superior minds, viagra movies can’t foresee. Viagra movies Precisely beecause of their over-reliance on isolation, viagra movies they are unlikely to foresee effects such as the deaths of monarch butterflies exposed to the pollen of GM corn. Viagra movies And, viagra movies of course, viagra movies hubris leads mad scientists to presume the right to experiment on nonhuman animals while the cognitive habit of isolation leads them to not see the inherent invalidity of results derived from experiments on organisms removed from the social and biological systems in which they normally participate.
Viagra movies There are non-invasive ways to learn about and from other animals. Viagra movies Anything that can’t be learned that way—like all of the things we could learn if we subjected non-consenting humans to medical experimentation—must remain mysteries. Viagra movies We can’t know everything. Viagra movies And that’s OK. Viagra movies Indeed, viagra movies it might be a significant step forward for our species if we were to develop more modesty about the limits of our knowledge, viagra movies thereby exercising more caution before doing things like dumping iron in the ocean in hopes of capturing carbon and therefore mitigating climate change. Viagra movies Deliberately altering the chemistry of an ocean? No, viagra movies nothing could possibly go wrong with that plan!
How strong is 5 mg of cialis I recently re-read Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon, how strong is 5 mg of cialis which is my favorite of her novels and also one of the few books that have ever provoked me to heart-pumping stomach-jumping sobbing. How strong is 5 mg of cialis Since it had been some years since the last reading, how strong is 5 mg of cialis I wondered if it would have the same effect. How strong is 5 mg of cialis It did—even more so because of the sanctuary work that has taken up many of the intervening years.
How strong is 5 mg of cialis I’ll try to divulge only as much as I need to reveal to say what I have to say, how strong is 5 mg of cialis but if you’ve not read the book yet and prefer to be completely surprised by plot twists, how strong is 5 mg of cialis you’ll want to skip the rest of this paragraph and go onto the next. How strong is 5 mg of cialis There’s a point in the book when my favorite character bursts into the funeral for a departed relative whose tragic death has provoked her beyond the brink. How strong is 5 mg of cialis She speaks quietly to each mourner in turn, how strong is 5 mg of cialis claiming the departed as a member of her family, how strong is 5 mg of cialis and then shouts to the heavens, how strong is 5 mg of cialis so that everybody will know, how strong is 5 mg of cialis “And she was loved!”
How strong is 5 mg of cialis No matter that I know it’s coming, how strong is 5 mg of cialis that passage always leaves me feeling sucker-punched as I gasp to contain the fists of pain battering my heart and throat. How strong is 5 mg of cialis Even more so, how strong is 5 mg of cialis now that I know exactly what it feels like to have the burning wish to communicate that a being was loved.
How strong is 5 mg of cialis I remember when Chickweed—one of the first birds rescued by what would become the Eastern Shore Sanctuary and then VINE Sanctuary—died, how strong is 5 mg of cialis I dredged the house for objects to bury with him. How strong is 5 mg of cialis I wanted anybody later coming upon those chicken bones to know: This wasn’t anybody’s dinner. How strong is 5 mg of cialis This was somebody’s brother. How strong is 5 mg of cialis This was somebody’s friend.
How strong is 5 mg of cialis Why? The intensity of the impulse suggests a primordial root. How strong is 5 mg of cialis We’re social animals, how strong is 5 mg of cialis so much so that we construct our identities—originally and continually—from the reflections of ourselves we see in others’ eyes. How strong is 5 mg of cialis And so… something about full personhood depends—or feels like it depends—on being seen by others. How strong is 5 mg of cialis (Really seen. How strong is 5 mg of cialis That’s why persistent misperceptions, how strong is 5 mg of cialis especially by parents and partners, how strong is 5 mg of cialis can be so damaging.) And then maybe… something about goodness—or, how strong is 5 mg of cialis rather, how strong is 5 mg of cialis the feeling of goodness—depends on being cherished by others.
How strong is 5 mg of cialis And so when someone—especially someone from a despised or denigrated group—dies, how strong is 5 mg of cialis those who cherished that being want everybody to know: This wasn’t just some body; this was somebody. How strong is 5 mg of cialis What makes that most clear? That s/he was loved!
How strong is 5 mg of cialis This train of thought was provoked by the death of a duck called Baltimore by those of us who loved him.
How strong is 5 mg of cialis Please do go now and read his obituary, how strong is 5 mg of cialis which I wrote with the intent of communicating these facts: He began life in a foie gras factory, how strong is 5 mg of cialis enduring unspeakable suffering. How strong is 5 mg of cialis He was rescued in an act of compassion that would be considered an act of terrorism under current laws. How strong is 5 mg of cialis He lived out his life at the sanctuary, how strong is 5 mg of cialis where he behaved kindly to other beings. How strong is 5 mg of cialis And he was loved!
Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf “Don’t need no hateration, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf holleration / in this dancerie”
Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf I don’t know about you, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf but there was quite a bit of speculation, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf imitation, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf derivation in my kitcherie when Mary J. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Blige came out with “Family Affair” back in 2001. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf I definitely remember telling incoming roosters that we didn’t allow hateraters at this sanctuary, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf and I’m pretty sure I drove Miriam halfway around the bend by adding “-ation” to random verbs and “-ery” to terminal nouns in the midst of otherwise unremarkable conversations.
Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf All credit to Mary J. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Blige, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf I argued, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf for audacity. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Considering the spectrum of wordplay from bebop to hip hop, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf those coinages didn’t seem especially clever at first listen. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf But, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf the heavy-handed forced rhyme and alliteration of “hateration” and “holleration”–hit hard right on the beat–did capture the ugliness of the hating and hollering Mary J. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf was deriding. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf And then the flippancy of “dancerie” (as I imagined it was spelled) did seem the perfect antidote to mean-minded stomping in the first line of the couplet.
Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf So, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf you know, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf it was poetry.
Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf So, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf imagine my delight last week when, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf midway through a 1974 anthology of Caribbean literature, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf I happened upon this poem, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf written by Louise Bennett to mark the 1961 withdrawal of Jamaica from the Federation of the West Indies (which led to the collapse of that federation):
Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Dear Departed Federation
Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Dear Departed Federation
Bounce you eena outa space
Hope you fine a restin place.
Is a heavy blow we gi yuh
An we know de fault noh fe yuh
For we see you operate
Over continent an state.
But de heap a boderation
In a fe we lickle nation
From de start a yuh duration
Meck we frighten an frustrate.
A no tief meck yuh departed
A no lie meck yuh departed
But a Fearful meck we Careful
How we let yuh tru we gate.
Fearful bout de big confusion
Bout de final constitution
An Jamaica contribution
All we spirit aggrivate.
An we memba self-protection
All we ears of preparation!
Quashie start to contemplate!
Beg yuh pardon Federation
Fe de sudden separation
If we sufferin’ survive
We acquaintance might revive.
Dear Departed Federation
Beg you beg dem tarra nation
Who done quarrel and unite
Pray fe po West Indies plight.
Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Yes! Murderation. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Botheration. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Both clear antecedents of “hateration” and “holleration.” Of course, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf I don’t know whether Mary J. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Blige ever heard or read that particular poem, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf but she did grow up in New York City, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf where plenty of West Indians live, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf so she may well have spent time in verbal environments where the playful creation of such coinages was common.
Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf And notice: However playful the wording, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf that poem is serious. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf As is the call for a dancefloor free of hateration. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf As the subject of my previous blog post also knew, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf existing words aren’t always adequate to the task of saying what needs to be said. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Indeed, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf divisive violence may be built into the words we use to slice-and-dice the world into bite-sized bits. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf If Audre Lorde was right and “the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf” then we need to feel free to create the tools we need, herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf whether these be new words or new non-verbal strategies. Herbal viagra welnet4u.de wf Like peaceful danceries.
Purchase cialis Lesbian-feminist poet, purchase cialis essayist, purchase cialis and activist Adrienne Rich died this week at 82.
Adrienne Rich in 1987 (Photo by Neal Boenzi, purchase cialis New York Times)
Purchase cialis Here’s a quote from her poem, purchase cialis “The Burning of Paper Instead of Children“:
Purchase cialis I am composing on the typewriter late at night, purchase cialis thinking of today. Purchase cialis How well we all spoke. Purchase cialis A language is a map of our failures. Purchase cialis Frederick Douglass wrote an English purer than Milton’s. Purchase cialis People suffer highly in poverty. Purchase cialis There are methods but we do not use them. Purchase cialis Joan, purchase cialis who could not read, purchase cialis spoke some peasant form of French. Purchase cialis Some of the suffering are: it is hard to tell the truth; this is America; I cannot touch you now. Purchase cialis In America we have only the present tense. Purchase cialis I am in danger. Purchase cialis You are in danger. Purchase cialis The burning of a book arouses no sensation in me. Purchase cialis I know it hurts to burn. Purchase cialis There are flames of napalm in Catonsville, purchase cialis Maryland. Purchase cialis I know it hurts to burn. Purchase cialis The typewriter is overheated, purchase cialis my mouth is burning. Purchase cialis I cannot touch you and this is the oppressor’s language.
Purchase cialis Since I’ve been writing too many RIPs these days, purchase cialis that seems to be all I have to say.
Purchase cialis I could tell you about the time I heard the line quoted in the title of this post, purchase cialis read out (as it happens) at a memorial service for Simone deBeauvior and was so moved that I tracked down the person who had read it, purchase cialis in order to learn that the poem she had read was Rich’s 1963 “Snapshots of a Daughter-in-Law.” Or, purchase cialis I could tell you about how heartening it was for me when Adrienne Rich, purchase cialis whilst signing books after a speech she’d given in Ann Arbor, purchase cialis told me to “keep up the good work.” Or, purchase cialis I could dig deeper, purchase cialis dredging up memories of long nights—many long nights, purchase cialis at many different times of my life—when the words of this woman either echoed my own anguish or helped me, purchase cialis so many years younger than she, purchase cialis imagine making my own way to the place of integrity she seemed to reach in her later works.
Purchase cialis “But I just don’t have the heart for that right now, purchase cialis” I was going to say. Purchase cialis But flipping through online lists of her books (all of mine, purchase cialis alas, purchase cialis are boxed in cardboard at the moment so I cannot flip through the books themselves), purchase cialis I came upon the first line of one of my favorite of her poems, purchase cialis which she wrote at 49 (I am now 50):
Purchase cialis A wild patience has taken me this far
Purchase cialis And, purchase cialis you know what? That’s true. Purchase cialis And useful to remember. Purchase cialis So, purchase cialis let me close by thanking Adrienne Rich for reminding me of that, purchase cialis and for all of the poems and essays that remain (despite her death):
Purchase cialis delivered

Viagra in canada pfizer Dunno why it’s taken me so long to announce this, viagra in canada pfizer but I am moving back to the sanctuary, viagra in canada pfizer where I’ll be living in a 1973 Airstream trailer, viagra in canada pfizer sharing my front yard with cows and chickens in the part of the mountainous sanctuary property we call “up the hill.”
My new home
Viagra in canada pfizer As regular SuperWeed readers know, viagra in canada pfizer I co-founded VINE Sanctuary (originally Eastern Shore Sanctuary) with Miriam Jones in rural Maryland back in 2000. Viagra in canada pfizer We both lived on site for the first several years. Viagra in canada pfizer Then I managed operations on site while Miriam lived elsewhere (visiting frequently) for a couple of years. Viagra in canada pfizer That experience—solo sanctuary work in rural isolation—really wore me out, viagra in canada pfizer so I’ve taken a break from direct animal care for a couple of years while Miriam has more-than-ably not only managed but significantly expanded the sanctuary following its relocation to rural Vermont. Viagra in canada pfizer (She’ll still be running the show. Viagra in canada pfizer I’ll just be pitching in with sanctuary chores while getting back to the steady schedule of writing and speaking that I used to maintain.)
Viagra in canada pfizer Speaking of writing, viagra in canada pfizer I’m just now finishing what ought to be the penultimate round of revisions on the book about the sanctuary’s first decade (and so much more—it’s about birds and people, viagra in canada pfizer race and place, viagra in canada pfizer and the ecology of violence). Viagra in canada pfizer I started keeping notes for that book shortly after we took in the first chicken, viagra in canada pfizer becuase it was already clear to me that other people both wanted and needed to hear the stories I was living and observing out in the chicken yards. Viagra in canada pfizer I had a go at writing the book in 2005, viagra in canada pfizer but that draft was a disaster, viagra in canada pfizer partly because I was still in the midst of of its narrative and partly because I didn’t yet have the skills I needed to tell the tale adequately. Viagra in canada pfizer So, viagra in canada pfizer I wrote Aftershock and then set about developing my creative non-fiction skills while continuing to live the story. Viagra in canada pfizer The next big push to write the book started in 2009, viagra in canada pfizer as the sanctuary’s decade on the Delmarva came to a close, viagra in canada pfizer providing a natural endpoint for the narrative. Viagra in canada pfizer Three years and heaven-knows-how-many rebuilds, viagra in canada pfizer rewrites, viagra in canada pfizer and remixes later, viagra in canada pfizer it’s really ready. Viagra in canada pfizer Next step: Pitching to publishers, viagra in canada pfizer so wish me luck on that.
Viagra in canada pfizer I’m excited about that and about the move, viagra in canada pfizer but I also have mixed feelings. Viagra in canada pfizer While it will be very good for me to get back to the sanctuary and to pick up some of the work set aside whilst making my living by teaching, viagra in canada pfizer I’m going to miss teaching at MCTC and Metrostate here in the Twin Cities more than I can say. Viagra in canada pfizer And there are people (and places) I’ll miss too. Viagra in canada pfizer So, viagra in canada pfizer don’t be surprised to see some “what I’ll miss about Minneapolis” posts in the next couple of months. Viagra in canada pfizer But do feel free to cheer me on as I prepare to segue to the next stage in my life.

Generic money order viagra My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Generic money order viagra The trajectory of my responses to this book: (1) Excitement, generic money order viagra (2) mild disappointment, generic money order viagra (3) growing admiration with every page turn which (4) canceled out any disappointment, generic money order viagra all adding up to (5) five enthusiastic stars.
Generic money order viagra (1) Excitement upon discovering the book: Wow! I can’t wait to look at pretty pictures of well-designed bicycles.
Generic money order viagra (2) Mild disappointment upon initial browsing: Whoa! Many of these bikes are not much to look at and an awful lot of them are folding bikes, generic money order viagra which aren’t particularly interesting to me.
Generic money order viagra (3) Admiration as I begin to read, generic money order viagra growing with every page turn: The perfect blend of sharp pictures and clear text illuminates why each bike was chosen. Generic money order viagra Many bikes that seem bland at first glance prove, generic money order viagra upon closer inspection by a now better-informed eye, generic money order viagra to be subtly elegant paragons of good design. Generic money order viagra Meanwhile, generic money order viagra as the pages pile up, generic money order viagra the reader is learning–in easy, generic money order viagra bite-sized steps–more than she knew before about the thousand-and-one questions involved in bike engineering and manufacturing.
Generic money order viagra (4) All disappointment vanishes as this leads to renewed appreciation for every bicycle, generic money order viagra and numerous near-crashes as the reader turns her head (while riding her own bicycle) to look more closely at bikes passing by. Generic money order viagra Back at home on the couch, generic money order viagra the pages of her notebook fill with scribbles and doodles inspired by the facts and images in this extraordinary book.
Generic money order viagra (5) Five stars: The book itself is well-designed, generic money order viagra with just the right blend of text and photos for a book of this kind. Generic money order viagra Apart from the sheer physical joy of looking at (and imagining riding) these bikes, generic money order viagra the close reader will be rewarded with information and inspiration.
Generic money order viagra In sum: This book is right on time. Generic money order viagra As the planet warms, generic money order viagra we need more people to be inspired not only to ride but also to tweak and redesign bikes of all kinds.
