Woke up this morning with 1 of my favorite Audre Lorde quotes all in my head:

"Sometimes we drug ourselves with dreams of new ideas. The head will save us. The brain alone will set us free. But there are no new ideas still waiting in the wings to save us as women, as human. There are only old and forgotten ones, new combinations, extrapolations and recognitions from within ourselves - along with the renewed courage to try them out. And we must constantly encourage ourselves and each other to attempt the heretical actions that our dreams imply, and so many of our old ideas disparage."

I blame LeftRoots. I went to bed reading some of what some LeftRoots comrades recently wrote and am feeling re-inspired, intimidated and fired up to help create the world we need.
