Christmas Lullaby

“Christmas Lullaby,” by Jason Robert Brown, eavesdropped after dinner early December last year. [Ed note: since it’s not hosted on this site (file size exceeds capacity, etc.), it’ll be less choppy if you give it a moment to load before hitting “play.”] I couldn’t help but re-run this sweet gem

At the end of the tether

Tetherball at big sister’s schoolyard, Berkeley, CA.   Next time around it smacked Baba in the kisser. That’ll learn me to pay attention.

Michigan mother Amy Weber addresses Troy, MI’s proudly heterosexist mayor with the kind of loving, measured, dead-on appeal

A love story.

A brilliant two minutes of film from GetUp!, a multi-issue progressive Australian organization (along the lines of Courage Campaign here in CA).
