I am currently working with the Gustavus Myers Center for the Study of Bigotry and Human Rights on the distribution and marketing of their Sheroes Womeyn Warriors Calendar, and would like to invite you to take a moment to consider purchasing one either for yourself or as a gift. A brief description and history of the calendar follows:
The website address for the calendar can be found here:
Each day of each month we honor a different womyn with a photo/drawing and brief warrior bio. Many of these innovative womyn were maligned, attacked, denounced, imprisoned, even assassinated for their activism. We hereby recognize and honor each and all included.
The Sheroes Womyn Warriors Calendar was created in 1998 by Fred Ho, Big Red Media, and ORSSASM, the Organization of Revolutionary Socialist Sisters and Some Men. It was designed by Carol Genetti; additional editorial contributions came from Samantha Smarts. Numerous companeras/os helped the collaboration. Sheroes is now published by the Gustavus Myers Center for the Study of Bigotry and Human Rights. We thank Chaz Maviyane-Davies for his striking cover design for the 2007 calendar.
We welcome suggestions on womyn rebels who should be included in the 2008 calendar. Contact us at myerscenter.org.
Thanks - for in the struggle for justice is the hope!
Proceeds from the calendar will benefit the work of the Myers Center and will continue the publication of this amazing calendar. Please also consider a generous donation to the work of the Myers Center with your calendar purchase. More information about the Myers Center can be found at http://www.myerscenter.org
I would also be more than happy to answer any questions about the calendar. Please feel free to forward this information to interested parties.
Thanks so much.
Yours in struggle,

The following is from SARK's book inspiration sandwich (I love the fact that on the cover it says "eat this book")
EXTEND SUPRISE INVITATIONS
My friend chrisinia said to me, "Want to come over and eat poptarts and watch movies?" I rapidly did an "adult" calculation: Poptarts = a headache, movies =time spent doing "nothing."
Then, I let my "inside child" take over. Her house was set up as a movie cave. Futons, cushions and pillows covered the floor, and it was dark, cook adn quiet. Boxes of poptarts were stacked by the toaster. We bundled in and did nothing but eat poptarts and watch movies, and I loved every second! No headache! We need to extend surprising invitations and accept them.
(I am tired so the rest of this article will have to wait till tomorrow.)
Hope everyone has been able to experience alittle bit of "SARKish" living every day.

magic and Sark
I have been sneeking into the corners of my temporary University bookstore to read bits of Succulent Wild Woman. I have not read this book before, and I love it. With all the mix up through Hurricane Katrina, it is so nice to hide away between the tall bookshelves and have Sark whisper her secrets to me. She casually brings up her incest, and I have more hope for my healing through incest pains. All the little drawings in Succulent Wild Woman have flown through my mind onto my class notes all week, making Biology a lot more interesting!
I love my secret hidden times with Sark in the bookstore. I am going to buy my own copy of Succulent Wild Woman soon, but I almost find myself putting it off so I can continue the way I have been. It's like an adventure. I love adventures. ;-) -Brittany Current Mood: rejuvenated

What do you do
in the in-between times?
I've just had a series of dreams come true: a new job, I'm starting social work school in eleven (eep!) days, my partner and I are getting married on October 15th, and I feel like I'm just sort of stuck in a holding pattern until things start happening. What do you do when you feel stuck?

Anyone have ideas on how to make this community more lively? =)
Meme-type questionnaires, maybe? Any thoughts?

Hello there! I am a new member. I have only read one of SARK's books (Succulent Wild Woman
), but I love her. She has a great perspective on life. Her writing encourages me. So nice to see such power*full women out there, and here! Current Mood: hopeful

I just joined and thought I would introduce myself...I'm Julie and I'm 22 from Windsor, Ontario, Canada...I found one of Sark's books, Prosperity Pie: How to stop worrying about money and everything else last year by some miracle in a clearance bin when all I was doing with my time was worrying about money because that September I would be going to University....after that I was addicted! I am currently reading The Bodacious Book of Succulence and have also enjoyed Eat Mangoes Naked, Succulent Wild Woman, and Transformation Soup...I sound so boring hehe....it would be great to get this community active!

just saw this
I watched and felt so inspired! I have always wanted to be an author and have only been published once. It was really great, and I have been trying again since then, but not so much. Anyways-watching this little clip makes me want to start again!
Just thought I would share! I hope everyone has a great day! :-) -Brittany Current Mood: inspired

I just joined this community, so I thought I'd introduce myself. My name's Christina, I live in a suburb of Boston, and work for the Women's Institute for Housing and Economic Development (http://www.wihed.org
). I'm an avid reader of SARK's books, a poster on the MMB, where I"m leading a group through Make Your Creative Dreams Real. I'm always looking to meet kindred spirits!
Thanks for this community!
