My second to last postcard! I’m a bit sad. This project has been so huge for me, especially by taking photos. Unfortunately I got a little behind while mailing them (two weeks) which has taught me that unless something is felt with a violent urgency and accountability, it seldom gets done.
Action is on the horizon- I can feel it. My generation cares about climate change with one foot in the present, and one foot in the dismissive: “Ah- we’re going to die any way.” “Boo. Capitalism.” The challenge will be to transform irony into action.
I’m in Ottawa right now for Thanksgiving. In this photo is my aunt Paula, me, my cousin Thomas, his girlfriend Cassandra (tragically cut off) and of course postcard #51: Queer Commie with AIDS
The quote of which is: "We're here! Let's rise up! We have nothing to fear!"
I think, if we quiet our minds and listen to our hearts; I believe it to be true.
