"Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen with our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our sheer relentlessness and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe. Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing. - Suzanna Arundhati Roy" Hi, I'm Dan. I try to follow Jesus (the nice way). I'm 49. I am a husband and a father (two sons). I work in a factory fixing things. I am an elder in my church. I like to read and camp and ride a beat up old bicycle and write things down and be with my family.
