June 6 - Ravioli w/Meat Sauce
“More cowbell!” you may be thinking. But how are they made? Let’s look at the creative use of metal to make a musical instrument.
I got to work with metal a little bit in school shop class. We were given rods and had to make screwdrivers by heating and pounding the metal. It wasn’t hard to get the shape right, but to get the metal to the proper hardness was a bit of a challenge. I think we also spot-welded some small metal boxes.
This cowbell-making project wouldn’t scare me to attempt, but it would require quite a few specialized tools that are not in my toolbox.

I’m hung up on the unsilverlined silverback Harambe tragedy. After watching the video a few times, it continues to run in my mind. I see the great and beautiful primate clearly making a universal gesture of nurturance with its delicate paw. His aura calm. Body language, unaggressive. Maybe I’m projecting, but I saw awareness and protectiveness on display in that enclosure. And a look, unforgettable, seems to be saying “Yo people, y’all know you dropped bambino in here, down here…Reading me?”
The subsequent hit on the ape, and ensuing flurry of responses, including laying of blame compels me less. But that’s sure interesting too. [As a sidebar to this I keep thinking that if we can no longer recognize fundamental signs, mudras for benign intent- from creatures of our own world- what chance do we have of getting the right message when the aliens come visit?]

“If you're not aware of your location in relation to the indigenous people's liberation struggles of whose lands you’re on, then any liberation that you're fighting for is still gonna be colonization." - Klee Benally, Navajo artist and activist of Big Mountain, Black Mesa, AZ
The Root is working to gain a deeper understanding of what this means so that we can be in solidarity with indigenous liberation. We live, work, and organize on colonized land. The history of the Native people in the Connecticut River Valley has been intentionally and violently replaced. What we have learned about the place where we live is from a colonizer perspective. To decolonize our minds and our spaces it is crucial to un-learn the history of this river valley, so that we can better understand the Indigenous narrative.

The Democratic Party in Vermont is turning out to be a bunch of flaming hypocrites!
I'm not listing all the forums I have not been included in as a Democratic Party candidate for Governor of Vermont, but this is the most recent one I found out about today that I have been excluded from; and now I can see the Democrats for their true colors.
I have not yet been invited to any Governor candidate forum or debate in Brattleboro.
I’ve been called several times from the “U.S. Government Grant Dept.” in Washington DC, informing me that I have been selected to receive a $7000 grant that I “will never have to pay back”. The callers speak strange English. Not Indian Maybe Philippine.
I was just at Avenue Grocery on Western Ave and learned that there is a missing beagle somewhere in Brattleboro.
The dog was in Harmony Lot with its owner, got spooked and ran away. I was told that it is a shelter dog, named Gypsy, and could be anywhere from downtown to I-91.
If you see a confused, scared beagle out there, get in touch with Avenue Grovery and they can put you in touch with the owner.
Guilford Center Stage begins its second season with the premiere of a pair of one-act plays by Guilford playwright, Michael Nethercott, who also directs the production. “Nocturne Titanica” is a unique take on the sinking of the Titanic. “The Lace Jury” is based on the first American all-women jury of the 20th century. Interestingly, the historic events on which the plays are based happened within 6 months of each other in 1911 and 1912.
There will be three performances: Friday and Saturday, June 3 and 4 at 7:30 pm, and a matinee on Sunday, June 5 at 2 pm. at Broad Brook Grange.

I do not celebrate this one day
to commemorate the war dead.
I do not honor this one day
to remember their sacrifice.
No, I will not honor them
on this one day…
