Hands on Politics

I worked for my candidate today

in a stuffy warehouse instead of

packing picnic for walk in woods.

I made myself call strangers on

cell phone I don't use on my own

because I believe future depends

on citizen commitment to remaking

government of, by, for all people .

Seductive trap to accept passive

role as consumer of government.

entitled to argue, lament, complain.

I worked for my candidate today.


  1. Good for you for practicing 'hands on politics,' Victoria! So important not JUST to be a 'consumer of government.'

  2. You're an inspiration, Victoria. Hard to cast aside a lovely picnic, but so uplifting for the right reasons.

  3. You amaze me with your dedication to something so important to our lives. You are an inspiration in so many ways and this one is one of those.
