Whether we’re aware of it or not, we are all on a path….some paths may twist and turn and and take us off in unimaginable directions…..others may be straight and steady with goals checked off at each end point as new ones are quickly created. Some of our paths are influenced by family and the values we learn in our early years and some paths are influenced by curiosity, and openness,……..even dreams, intuitions, synchronicities, coincidence and perhaps a bit of magic. Some of our paths are a hodgepodge of all of the above.
My guest this week on KOWS Wise Woman Storytime, Susan Lamont has been a feminist most of her life. While always politically conscious, her activism became energized and more focused around 2000. Today’s story is about the intersection of all of the above……how the values in a family inform us; how the coincidences of our lives influence us and how synchronicity, a little bit of magic, a determination to live in a just world and the sheer grit and willingness to roll up our sleeves and jump in, transforms us into our best selves.
Susan Lamont is currently actively involved in social justice work through the Police Brutality Coalition, the Green Party of Sonoma County, the local chapter of Veterans For Peace, It Won’t Happen Here and 100 Thousand Poets for Change. You can contact Susan at Peacenik@sonic.net
