Dear friends, Today, we are not ok. Our friends are not ok. Our children are not ok. Our country is not ok. Over our short history, but specifically over the past year, Recess has negotiated a pressing question: how do we identify the needs of our community and address them with care? Care is different than service. Care implies a proximity—a physical closeness—and an ethos. We have asked this question together with our artists and thinkers in the context of overwhelming pain and trauma. We will continue to collectively ask and respond as best we can. Today, Recess will offer a space of care, food, drink, and rest. Bring loved ones, children, family, friends. We will be open from 12-6pm. Please come slow down with us, step back. We need each other. With love and care, Allison & Recess
My best work
REVIEW: Janice L. Loper 5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional. Truthful. Intensely absorbing. Eloquent. November 29, 2018 Format: Kindle Edition You get such an emotional response from each page. Your mind shouts, “Yes, This is truth.” As you read. Some passages leave you bleeding and stunned. Others have you shaking your head. These collections and musings are quite stirring. The truth can be quite ugly.
