Happy Birthday, Alice Walker !

It's thanks to a Howard Zinn page on facebook, the Zinn Education Project, that I realized this birthday.

I will post that link later today.
This is the page that Howard Zinn page offered, an interview of Alice Walker by Amy Goodman from Democracy Now....

Ok, I am going to try to post the interview on its own....--

I was either in high school or college when I first read Ms. Walker's fiction & poetry.

Her poem, *Expect Nothing*, was introduced to me by a colleague when I was a counselor at Indian Brook, one of the Farm & Wilderness Camps in Vermont. I was 18 or 19. Those lines have helpfully danced in my head for 30 years!

* Live frugally on surprise. *
