Thank you, Dr. Bakari, for speaking openly and truthfully and for giving us a voice and a platform. I'm so sorry you've endured what you have, what we all have. You're a Blessing.

Re: “Coyote America author Dan Flores lays out why we should know more about the resilient native canid

The coyotes near us here in New Mexico are a curious and not entirely unwelcome presence. Behind our home is a protected land bordering on urban development. The coyotes howl at night and if one has never heard them, it is not like anything other animal sound. Sometimes, when we hear them at night and if they are real close by, we'll get up and go outside with flashlights in hopes of seeing them. Listening to them is also a treat.
These animals are so well suited to living around people. During the daylight, I have had coyotes walk right past me on he street and not even realize that they are there. They have a particularly good camouflage.
We will be permanently leaving NM this weekend for our other home in Manitou Springs. It has not yet been my experience to witness coyotes in Manitou, though I will not be surprised if I begin seeing them. They certainly belong and humans need to co-exist with them.

Re: “Perfect pages

Another great GLBTIQ book that recently came out is "The Cross in the Closet" by Timothy Kurek about a southern baptist young adult who came out as gay for a year to see how his family, friends and church/ community would treat him. Great book- amazing courage and meekness to do such a thing and see for himself that God loves and accepts GLBTIQ people too. I want to bring Timothy to CS during Pride to speak to our Youth group and community. I think this could open up dialog between the GLBTIQ and church community to promote tollerance, acceptance and peace among all people who live in Colorado.

Re: “Perfect pages

I think you're wrong about A Land More Kind Than Home. That's been on my to-read list for seems like a year. I saw reviews of that book all over the Internet. So it hasn't been "under the radar" in my opinion. Wilderness, however, has been, although that, too, has been on my too-read list. I just by chance found a review of that book and now really want it.

Re: “Poetry party

I just now saw that the poems are here. At first they didn't show. I believe there are two versions of the ending, with the thought's being the same. I may be recalling the version online......

Re: “Poetry party

"Red Alert" is among the favorites of mine. If you recall, the ending is something like "for years, I thought it was wolves I had to beware." In other words, it was never wolves, but the mother. Nothing can prepare one for mothers of any kind. I have heard audiences nervously, slightly giggle at the end of this one when Lois has performed it, and I have heard them outright gasp. It is a very powerful piece.

Re: “Poetry party

Wow. Really enjoyed Red Alert. "dressed me in the color of raw meat ..." powerful. So much our parents can't -- or won't -- prepare us for.
