From Feminist to Artist

When I was two years old I attended the second annual Gay Pride Parade in San Francisco on June 25, 1972 with over 54,000 supporters.

Manifesting In A Wonderland

Manifesting In A Wonderland by Michelle Ida Fairchild My enthusiasm for bright new ideas and plans for the future has been lagging lately.  This didn’t bode well as I began to try and figure out what I would write about the topic of Manifestation.  In light of my floundering I found myself googling “What if you don’t know what you want to manifest?” except that I somehow typed it wrong and wrote “What if...
