I learned about JR's passing on Facebook last night, and was amazed because I thought she'd died years ago--apparently she's lived a very quiet life in recent years, but active until the end. Fortunately this means I remember her in her prime, which was a classic period. Beautiful AND funny.

the freewheelin' suze rotolo. so happy on that long ago snowbound day on the streets of greenwich village with what's his name.
what a genuine life and woman she was.... imagine how true to herself she had to be through all those things and how cool it might have been to share some ideas with a person such as herself

Sanchez Lujan discusses his growing up in a rural community, East Los Angeles, and Mexico; how early experiences and changes in culture have affected his art and developed his interest in history and politics; his attraction to black culture and the relationship of art as a medium for inter-ethnic interaction where politics and human nature create divisions; his understanding of racial segregation and apartheid in California society; coming into consciousness as a Chicano; and his collaboration and the formation of Los Four with Roberto de la Rocha (father of Zach de la Rocha), Carlos Almaraz, and Frank Romero.

I was at an outdoor show last summer where everybody was checking the weather on their phones because tornadoes were threatened, though all that happened in the end was a pretty spectacular thunderstorm. Makes me realize even more how lucky we were, especially as I was in a covered area.

Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai passed away today after undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer. Maathai was the founder of the Green Belt movement in Kenya in 1977, which has planted more than 10 million trees.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu said: “Professor Maathai introduced the idea of women planting trees in Kenya to reduce poverty and conserve the environment,” in a statement.
“At last count, the Green Belt Movement she helped to found had assisted women to plant more than 40 million trees.

She was a true African heroine,” the statement continued.
“Our condolences go to Professor Maathai’s family, to the people of Kenya, and to the countless women (and men) across Africa and the world to whom she was an inspiration,
