Emotional Intimacy Question: Giving Back

Folks have mentioned an interest in questions and conversations that make them think. So I've decided to offer more of those. This is the current list.

45. If you had $100,000 to give away to any cause, which cause would you choose and why?

Oh, gosh, I'm torn. Two of my go-to givebacks are tribes and animals like wolves. Thinking about the amount, it wouldn't go that far for wolves. But it would be enough to found a herd of bison for a reservation that doesn't have one. It would buy a LOT of fuel oil or fresh produce. It would fund several native-language books or cob roundhouses. Yeah. I'd probably mail it to Pine Ridge and say, "Do whatever you need most. Mitakuye oyasin."


Poem: "Made for Togetherness"

This poem is a birthday present for [personal profile] dialecticdreamer. Sometimes, just surviving another year deserves a medal. This also fills the "island" square in my 8-2-19 card for the End of Summer Bingo fest. It belongs to the Aquariana and Strange Family threads of the Polychrome Heroics series.
