Keep Swinging at Hurricane Harvey

IMG_20170830_194909

The Houston area is flooded on a scale that boggled the mind. Fortunately, people near and far are mobilizing to assist in rescue and recovery.

I gave a $ Super Power donation today to Terence Winkler, a friend’s brother, who lost everything, along with the eight children and four adults with him.

Here’s the link: https://www.paypal.me/twinkler1

He is a generous man richly deserving of generosity in return. I strongly support giving to the givers because their needs are so often overlooked.

Let’s keeping swinging at the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey!

Anti Racist Group Forming.

I had a great conversation today with a friend who’s forming a group in New Orleans to ensure protests and marches aren’t co-opted by political thugs from any side of the ideological spectrum.

When he’s ready to go public I’ll gladly share all relevant details. A cursory glance at the headlines confirms the crying need to reclaim public spaces and gatherings from political thugs from any side of the ideological spectrum.

We agree you can’t play favorites with those who assault and intimidate others.

Creating Safety Together

 

This mosaic speaks volumes about what it means when I say, ” Let’s create safety together. ”

Safety is for all, not some, to enjoy.  It shouldn’t be limited via government or corporate rationing.

#Super Comes in All Colors.

The above image ( my words and Justin Tyme’s digital magic ) is our response to the Charlottesville, VA., race riot.

As advocates inspired by heroic fiction, we shared a picture that seeks to bridge a widening divide in our body politic.

Some have been amused by it and others welcome it as affirmation of their own battered commitment to unity.

I define ” super ” as realizing ones unique potential and helping others. It transcends indentitarianism’s narrow focus on one group. We want the exceptional recognized in all colors and social categories.

When a couple of guys who call themselves ” Cap Black ” and the ” Redneck Superman ” tell America not to overlook who can be exceptional, people do a double take.

Two Cats & a Community.

My ” sidewalk office ” near the automatic doors of the New Orleans Healing Center is an active one. While watching out for area neerdowells and opportunities to assist patrons, I’ve made the acquaintance of a pair of tuxedo cats, affectionately nick named the Landlord and Junior.

Junior was so dubbed by Sam, a great human and benefactor to neighborhood cats and dogs.

The cats graciously allow me to perform security and greeter roles in what is essentially their domain. In return, I ( along with their other humans ) feed them from the Centers food co-op, which sells organic cat and dog food.

I gave the larger feline the Landlord nickname because of her loud demand to be fed, up to and including following me to the Co-op’s doors, should breakfast not be served fast enough.

The Landlord and Junior enjoy daily affection and tasty tribute, as befits their high calling as community cats.

Patrons look forward to seeing them luxuriously sprawled on the sidewalk and honestly, the pair make my day as safety creator for the building.

I thought I’d share a few words about the Landlord and Junior, two cats who have a warm place in many hearts within the New Orleans Healing Center community.

#CapBlackStreetPatrol 101.

The basic purpose of my street patrol is mobilizing people beyond pigment and party to unite around creating safety together.

As police morale ( and ranks ) plummets amid a lovefest for violent criminals and thieves, the safety created by the public is often all we can count on.

I fund my volunteer street patrol by working with businesses, staff snd patrons inside a building on the cusp of a ghettofied old neighborhood and a gentrified new one.

Its precarious proximity and welcoming culture invite any number of violent youth whom I’ve displaced who robbed people with impunity, along with engaging lengthy lists of folks in crisis.

This job arose as a direct result of my volunteering there in the wake of a female patron being attacked in one of the parking lots. It was Cap Black Street Patrol 101, where I provided a sorely missing presence and netwotked with stakeholders in the building and surrounding community.

Street Patrol 101 gave me a daily opportunity to create safety with people whose empathy regarding root causes of area violence and theft stops short of being required to become victims.
