I had a really cool evening tonight. Russell is in B'ham visiting family and, being home alone, I decided to go to a screening of _Dirt: The Movie_ at SPUR. It is narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis which was cool and featured lots of folks including Vandana Shiva, Wangari Maathai, Paul Stamets, Alice Waters and Fritjof Capra amongst many others talking about various aspects of soil. From the dustbowl and "mountain top removal" to organic farming and living roofs. SPUR now has a San Jose office (I think of it as a San Francisco based group) and I'm jazzed to know about it because they have some interesting programming. They have Wednesday lunchtime programs. If I didn't already have plans for next Wednesday I'd go to that one.

An extra bonus was my friend Stephanie turned up at the screening and I invited her home and we visited for about an hour and a half. She is also a long-term unemployed person (mechanical engineer/designer) and we commiserated and caught up on each other's lives. <3

Tomorrow I have an interfaith program at the Jain Center on _Religious Education in Middle Schools: Challenges and Opportunities_ to which I am quite looking forward. So this week, between volunteering at Abilities United, viewing Dirt and attending an interfaith forum -- I will be out and about a bit more than usual. I think I am opening to the energy of spring a bit and leaving my winter hibernation behind.

I hope you get to see it. I thought it was very worthwhile.
