As many of you know, I’m operating from my base in Tucson, Arizona. These past few weeks have greatly impacted all of us. The posts I had in the pipeline to carry me through Groundhog Day (the anniversary of my moving to Tucson 22 years ago) just didn’t fit with all that has been going on here.
This isn’t a political site. I have several other of those if you are interested in non-megacorporation networks and media . So I won’t wax eloquent here other than to say, business and every other part of Tucson Life has changed, as life always does, as of the events of January 8th. We will use the change that is presented to us to build a better more vibrant community that is most in keeping with the apparent meaning of the word “Stjukshon,” pronounced CHUK-son, used by the Tohono O’odham people, the original human inhabitants of Tucson.
The O’odham word roughly translates as the spring at the foot of black mountains. The people of Tucson are the wellspring at the heart of life in this valley. We are a diverse, wonderful people and we are a real community as we have been for at least 3000 years. We mourn our losses and celebrate and strengthen all that is our community.
I will continue to post reviews and such here, but I also will be expanding my business in a new direction with the intention of celebrating and strengthening our community. Stay tuned for an announcement within the next few weeks. For the moment you can still find a list of my business services here.
