I'm a member of both Sierra Club U.S. and Sierra Club Canada, and I want to share this image that Sierra Club Canada posted today along with their news of offering discounted memberships to join the resistance against Trump's assault on environmentalism.

This was then.

First They Came -- by Martin Niemöller
First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the ill and disabled
And I did not speak out
Because I was not ill or disabled
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

This is now.

I sent fannish gift packages to due South fen around the world: Hungary, New Zealand, Trinidad, and of course Canada. I bought bakery treats to bring to work for my co-workers, and I told the salesperson at the bakery all about More Joy Day and told her to "keep the change -- that's for More Joy Day". Along with [personal profile] sl_walker I co-created and am co-admin of a new dSC6D and Twin Peaks forum Both Sides of the Border for which we chose More Joy Day as the opening day. I had IRL More Joy Day dinner with [personal profile] verushka70 and we did 10-minute due South snippet word-sprints in honor of More Joy Day. I offered to beta (and the offer was accepted) for a due South writer whose fic has been WIP's for several years and who is now wanting to post again. I connected a fangirl who needed help from an Irish-speaking fangirl for Irish dialogue in her fic with an apropos Irish fangirl. I gifted [personal profile] sdwolfpup with a year of DW Premium account.

I didn't manage to do the daily postings for this year's Fandom Snowflake Challenge which has been running annually from January 1 to January 15. I saved in a folder all the comments made by those who did post for the challenge and I will read them all, albeit a bit late. Today's challenge, Day 15, the last day of this year's Fandom Snowflake Challenge is "In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers".

Short and simple: LOVE to the mods past and present of Fandom Snowflake Challenge, and all y'all of my flist and my circle and my followers!!!

We are in some hard times, flisties...so here I share some inspirado with y'all: "May we all be able to get up every day and, in spite of our pain and loss and fear, put on our boots and vest and plan to destroy the Empire."

And here is the rest of the article -- "The Importance of General Organa" -- from which that quote was taken.

This month continues to be the month of badly-fucked-by-RL. I just found out about Janet Wright:

Janet Wright of "Corner Gas," "due South," et al has died.

Just one day after I boosted the signal for the Safety Pin Movement, I am now retracting that boost because I've gotten a warning from the very watchful [personal profile] grey853 that white supremacists have co-opted the wearing of the safety pin.

I can't craft my own coherent thoughts right now, so here's a link to a well-written article and vids. Too much despair this week already, and now Leonard Cohen....

I keep thinking of these words from Hamlet when I think about the transition from Obama to Trump: "that was to this, Hyperion to a Satyr".
