I'm planning a trip to California and southern Oregon to interview feminist publishers of the '60s and '70s. I'm hoping to meet Jean and Ruth Mountaingrove who published The Blatant Image. They lived in an intentional community in Southern Oregon, land that is still designated as WomensLand. Many of the communities that converged around the act of publication remained, and outlasted the actual periodicals, themselves.

Every once in a while, you walk around your house, admiring evidence of your valentine. This morning, I ate my favorite breakfast in a favorite bowl (made by Robin), then discovered my favorite jeans and shirt (laundered by Robin). R. left her glasses and glasses case on the table. I like looking at both. So I bought her a surprise we've been talking about for weeks. We plan to enjoy it after our work is done, today.
