The common good, or the general welfare, must become more fully inclusive for all of us, and should maybe also include Greek folk dance -this just in from a Theban friend of mine on how you can learn and support it:
Since Covid is here, many dance teacher have taken to zoom. This Saturday February 6, 11am pacific time, Kyriakos Moisidis will be conducting a 90 minute worshop from Thessaloniki Greece. He is a great teacher and dancer and very knowledgeable in many areas of Greece especially his Pontic roots. Seminar is free but a small donation would be appreciated at Kypseli.orgZoom address for workshop is
Thank you, Tony!
So, it turns out that the Pontians are those Greek-speakers who were ‘exchanged’ from the southern Black Sea cities of Trabzon, Samsung, and I’ll look up the third, after Smyrna became Izmir, during the sad ‘population exchange’ between Greece and Turkey.
Please forgive the hurriedness of this post…
1.) Search for two different sources related to the Holocene Epoch and to the Holocene Calendar.
2.) Share them with us in the comments, here, please.
3.) Share your thoughts on how a calendar based on the Holocene Epoch might help, or hinder, inclusive thinking,
4.) Write a book, blog post or tweet that uses an alternate calendar, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. If you write a book, once published, please consider donating to your local public library.

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.
Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
