Have you always wondered what to bring to a Black and Pink event?
Well, Black and Pink cookies, of course.
On the screen today, I’ll share with you a tasty recipe that makes an abundance of treats…perfect to bring to your next prison abolition meeting or organizing event. Most folks need a bit of sweet sweet vegan support to do all the amazing, fierce things they do. And, if anyone needs a little cajole, it doesn’t hurt to give ‘em a cookie.
This past Sunday I was passing by the community garden on my way to the coffee shop and found out that, lo and behold, the farmer’s market was open! The weather has been so tricksy (colddddd and gray) that I forgot all about the market times! So, my garden friend, the sweetie and I went over there to check out the seedlings and to mouse around a bit. It was near the end of the market and most of the farmers were packing up for the day, but we found one booth that had…
Maybe you live in a house; an apartment; above a bar; in the country, out in the open and quiet; in a city that screams loud and gray; couch to couch; or the same bed you’ve slept in since you were a child.
Maybe your home is fixed in place, stable, or home space is more temporal, altered states of wherever you fall at night and open your cute-crusty eyes in the morning.
Spring comes along, and then soon enough it’s summer and most of us know what that means…
DON’T TURN ON THE OVEN.

Being a housequeer is all about taking joy in our ability to make home whatever we want it to be. For me, that means always having just the right book for any mood. When I want to read cozily curled up in bed with my cat on my lap and forget the outside world on a wintry Tuesday I need a very different book than when I’m reading next to an open window on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Young Adult literature is one of my favorite things to read, and I write about it over at Crunchings and Munchings. So, for all of you who are looking for a great book to grab, I’ve prepared a list of my favorite recently-published (since 2000) queer YA lit. It has everything from high school realism to fantasy series, so I hope you can all find something you want to curl up with! There is also a slew of exciting-looking queer YA that will be published this spring and summer, so I’ll be back next month with a list of what to look out for. In the mean time, come on over to Crunchings and Munchings and check out some more YA books, movies, and television.

2. Go out into the garden.
3. Eat snacks.
4. Enjoy the outdoors.
What a precious time! There’s something so quiet about Sundays that I really enjoy, especially at this time of year. The birds are chirping, the winds are blowing, and perhaps there’s some sunshine or puddles to jump in. When I reflect, this continues to be a special occasion for me because I used to work every single Saturday and Sunday for a couple years, and dang was it hard to make Tuesday morning brunch feel like Sunday brunch.
As my cat, Tengo, is getting all cozy in the “bad poetry” box that I sorted out in my office/studio, I’m realizing I should take the time to amend my previous post on spring-cleaning.
