This is an ongoing series to help those in my community that are economically impacted by the virus COVID-19. Each week, you will be introduced to several artists, artisans, musicians, writers, etc. If you are not economically impacted by the virus, please consider buying something from those who are.
We’re in this together.
Peace and Love,
Pink Buddha & Terri

I, like no other individual, like no other political party, like no other self proclaimed authority will ever permanently shape society. We are society. We may individually or collectively influence it though. How we emerge from our current crisis or the next one is still a guess. I love my freedom and liberty, it allows me to grow on my own terms and through my own choices. What I did notice, as did many, is that most people were easily divided and much of the blame was on the corruption prevalent in all government globally. So, when we emerge from this crisis, do we want to influence change or just accept the continued corruption? I believe we have windows of opportunity and I can sit back and await that window closing or use my influence, my love, my peace, to promote a “better more caring society.” So, I must. —Nigel Mitchell

What do we say to the establishment? Fuck you.
Fun Fact: Luke cracked his head open one night, partying with his pals. Ended up getting staples to hold it all together. I insisted he send me a photo of it so I could share it on myspace.
Working with charcoal along 2000+ miles with stones, rivers and
creeks, 600 marked sites with earth since 7/27/2016… with being with
alignment and with the energies I sense with the place and space, the
time of day and the seasons as continuum…

Nina says: When I was a toddler just having started to walk my parents always had me in a leather harness with a leather leash until I was about 4 ….. wonder if that’s where my fondness for B & D comes from.
