Mother George

Picked up this book at the local little library. I connected with this paragraph:

"If the outstanding youths are corrupted who will be left, then, for the practice of philosophy but the mediocrities, attracted by the showy dignity of it all? These men have little to offer but sophisms. Other than these, there are a handful, here and there, devoted to true philosophy because they are fed up with the madness of the multitude and with the corruption of the political world (496 D). A man of this small minority can do little to correct the world, nor will he join its madness. He is content if he can cultivate his own garden and be left in peace. (Strange thoughts from an Athenian, they for whom public life was as natural as breathing.)"

The Washington State History Museum features seldom-spotlighted history in Crossing Boundaries: Portraits of a Transgender West”

On May 29, the eve of Pride Month, the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma will open an original exhibition about transgender people in the West from the 1860s to the 1940s. The exhibition was created in collaboration with Dr. Peter Boag, an historian, author, and educator at Washington State University Vancouver. Crossing Boundaries: Portraits of a Transgender West highlights specific people who moved west and changed their activities, clothing, and behaviors to lead lives that fit more with their sense of self. Their life stories illuminate the exhibition’s themes of visibility, identity, acceptance, and history – themes that remain significant in the queer community today. Through historic newspaper clippings and artifacts, Crossing Boundaries considers how westward migration provided these individuals and others with opportunities for self-expression and fulfillment.

Mother George


Black settlers were the first to settle Idaho’s Grays Lake Valley in the 1860s. One of the many people who came west was George Holmes, known as “Mother George.” Mother George served as a midwife for many of the families in the valley, remaining in the area even after harsh winters drove many settlers out in the 1880s. She was believed to be of Black and Native descent. Although many people commented on her unusually large hands, it was not until her death around 1919 that those around her determined to their satisfaction that she had a male body.

Washington State Historical Society Day of Remembrance Virtual Events

Child in Japanese detention camp.

The Day of Remembrance (DOR) is an observance of the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. On February 19, 1942, Executive Order 9066 was signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, authorizing the internment of Americans of Japanese ancestry. The internment camps were hastily constructed compounds surrounded by high fences and barbed wire, and secured by armed guards. Living conditions were dismal.

Please join the Historical Society and our partners for two FREE virtual programs on Thursday, May 20. To learn more. Click the links below for full details:

5:00 PM - See a performance of Never Again: The Story of the Japanese American Incarceration, presented by Dukesbay Productions. This play features a collection of first-person stories of people who were forced into incarceration camps during World War II. Over the course of several scenes, five actors will bring this powerful history to life.

7:00 PM - UWT Scholarly Selections panel discussion, “Never Again is Now: Japanese American Incarceration, Anti-Asian Violence, and Immigration Detention in the 21st Century." A group of accomplished scholars will lead an engaging discussion about the history and meaning of U.S. government surveillance of Japanese Americans and World War II incarceration, in relationship to contemporary issues of anti-Asian violence, immigration and labor, private detention centers, and border patrol. Informed by history, we will address relevant questions about democracy and civil liberties, neoliberal policies, citizenship, and American identity. Panelists will also consider the possibilities of solidarity between social justice movements for freedom and equality, including Black Lives Matter.

Krist in Aztec

I was born 56 years ago today. I am trying to take care of myself by living in moderation. I feel great! My dad is 85 and I am shooting for at least that amount of life. I am really grateful for all I have. Thanks to all of the fans of the music I have been part of in my life!!! I play a lot of fingerstyle acoustic guitar. I also love playing bass and accordion. Thanks to so many for all of the support!!!
