Amanda's new book is a historical, political, colorful novel titled "The Reddening Path" which tells the story of a little Guatemalan girl adopted in the 80's by a lesbian couple in Ontario, who goes back in her 20's to meet her past ... We all left with a (signed) copy!
(Amanda, a former journalist, is also a visual artist who has been previously invited to Guatemala to paint a mural, along with a couple of other Canadian painters, on the subject of human rights)
I don't know what else can I add to this post, other than what we are experiencing more and more often in an ever increasingly overt, blatant, greed riddled, unethical, immoral behaviour of peers as we stand back and watch in "helplessness".
Without a doubt we all must survive in "this jungle" - what I do not understand is this increasing paralysis in the general population that lacks the compassion and the individual leadership and risk taking required to affect changes - even in our ow backyard!
Peace, love, joy and laughter and a huge hug to one and all
