Warm greetings on this dreary February Saturday, a week before our Feb. Community Conversation.
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I offer this poem by Audre Lorde as a tribute to an amazing force in the world of art, education and activism and as an opportunity to think about love.

Love maybe


in the middle 

of our bloodiest battles

you lay down your arms

like flowering mines

to conquer me home.

Audre Lorde
