For my friend VanessaLeigh, who organized a vigil acknowledging the eve of the beginning of testimony regarding Prop 8 in California:

Psychscribe Quote #17

February 22, 2008

“I call up my names: Woman who has been born in the arms of a woman and welcomed home. I shout truth teller, silence breaker, life embracer, death no longer fearing, woman reunited with her child self.  I sing woman who is daughter, sister, lover and mother to herself.   I hum woman planter, gatherer, healer.  I drum woman, warrior, siren, woman who stands firmly on her feet, woman who reaches inward to her center and outward to stars.  I am woman who is child no longer, woman who is making herself sane, whole. ”  Andrea R. Canaan

Psychscribe Quote #16

February 20, 2008

“Much Madness is divinest Sense-

To a discerning eye-

Much Sense-the starkest Madness-

‘Tis the Majority

In this, as All,  prevail-

Assent-and you are sane-

Demur-and you’re straightaway dangerous-

And handled with a Chain-“

                             Emily Dickinson
