There’s no urgency, she’s getting her work done using a minimum of resources, living and working at the same time. Airing her laundry on the balcony, she’s my doctor or my waitress; my neighbor. We all live in the same kind of apartment, wear similar clothing, eat the same food, enjoy free education and health care. We are democratic. Instead of competing with each other, we are all in it together.
From Cuba: An Adventure in Image and Word, paintings by Peggy McGivern and verse by Peter Stravlo, Opening Reception Friday, May 16, 5-8pm, Abend Gallery, Colfax and York, Denver. I’ll be reading at the opening.
