FABRIC ART PIECE
I have spent time every day working on this art piece of a living room. Here is the blank slate, of sorts...
I have added some windows and a door here...
And in this photo you can see that I have added a fireplace and zigzagged around the windows as well as the fireplace...
Next, I will be adding things like pictures on the wall and any other furniture that is standing up against a wall as well as flowers, candles on the mantle, fireplace screens, etc. Once those elements are finished then I will work on the furniture. I am thinking of having a central grouping situated center right with a small sitting area to the left.
ORGANIZATIONS TO TAKE BACK CONGRESS
There are a lot of different organizations. One way to find one that appeals to you is to google your particular interest and go to the sites that offer information.
The easiest way to find out about your local elected officials is Common Cause, a non-partisan group. Check it out here: http://act.commoncause.org/site/PageServer?pagename=sunlight_advocacy_list_page
This is a great site to check out legislation, congressional records, addresses, telephone numbers, etc.
Check it out here: https://www.congress.gov/
This site gives you information on what the party is up to as well information about local offices. Check it out here: https://www.democrats.org/
This is a large grassroots organization that is basically leading the charge. You can find the Indivisible Guide as well as local groups.

TOWN HALL MEETINGS
CNN keeps their list up to date. Note that there are many sites that offer lists of town hall meetings.
Check it out here: http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/10/politics/town-hall-location-congress/
There are many postcard mailings. This one is world wide. It's called the Ides of Trump.

There are lots of other very worthwhile groups and organizations that are getting involved. I hope you check out one, or two, or more, and get involved.
One caution: Don't over-extend yourself. Do what you can, when you can. Best thing to do is to find a cause or a group that appeals to you and get involved. The idea is to get involved now and stay involved from now on.
If you can't get out and march, send postcards or call your elected officials regularly (daily!)
Most of all, be sure you are registered to vote, and vote in every election from now on.
Question: Have you ever thought about running for office, any office, yourself? Think about it, we need to take back from the local level up.
Thanks for dropping by...
Enjoy your weekend...
