the word occupy seems particulary poignant right now this picture of me & sister-crone kami was taken on the first day of occupy vancouver. to be at the vancouver art gallery downtown  & experience the full engagement of young people is heartening. their faithful & patient adherence to the democratic process highlights the incompatibility of democracy with capitalism. 

i made my mother mask based on the features of my own face,   exaggerating the allure of my mother's. a small group of us were working with lizanne fisher on clarissa pinkola estes' version of baba yaga & vasilisa. through the story and creating the mask & a doll/rattle, i found myself beginning to penetrate deeper layers of connection with the wise crone at the core of the intractable mother.
