Oh lord, I wrote a thing about trash: https://firewally.net/post/the-trash-post/
Today and tomorrow (9/16 and 9/17):
If you show me proof that you donated $5 or more to habitat protection or another legitimate climate cause, you’ll get a CAF letter for free.
Include address where it’s going and name of recipient.
I’ll be reading in MPLS in October in support of my friend Bill, whose new book of poems “You Are Still Alive” comes out this month. I’m really excited about his book. For my part, I’ll also be reading pieces from my project Compliments from Animals, which is a letter writing service that lets me pretend I’m a lot of different creatures with positive opinions about people.
My post calling out St. Paul Public Works for stealing some pavement from me.
Heads up MSP Bike pals, there's another Midtown Greenway closure/detour coming up. It appears that there is going to be a reasonably safe detour route this time around, and we'll be loud about it if there isn't 🚲 🚴
This Thursday eve: join us for a drink and some co-working time to write your next streets.mn article. Black Stack Brewing.
Ayd Mill is getting a road diet AND a bikeway. Amazing!
If you gift a letter from Compliments from Animals, and you feel it’s helpful for me to know if the recipient has decreased vision, please let me know. I’m more than happy, for example, to print in larger type, or we can talk about emailing a recording of the letter, too, or something like that, like emailing the written letter if they have text reading software. Anything you or they like.
Friends I’ve got my act together and I WILL bring my handmade reusable-from-reused-materials nametags to the streetsmn meetup on Friday.
You can make your own and keep it, or give it back for us to reuse. Or DM me if you want me to make you one (send me your name and preferred colors, plus pronouns if you’d like them to be included).
PSA: file your 2017 m1pr before the 15th to get that free property tax rebate money before it expires
also file your 2018 while you're at it.
it's free money. it's yours. your name's on it. fill out the form. get it.
Femme/trans/woman/non-binary friends: Next Friday, August 9th streets.mn is having a FTW meetup in Saint Paul. Please join me to talk streets, write posts, complain, brainstorm, etc.
Or feel free to DM me!
