We raised $13,300 in pledges and donations at the Building Dignity show, at Macalester College, St. Paul / Minneapolis, last night. Added to the $5,000 already raised, this almost hits the target of $20,000 for the construction of La Encantada Centre for Development with Dignity, in Villa El Salvador, Peru.

This morning, I'm smiling at sunlight on snow. The beauty of bare branches, iced white rooftops, against blue sky. Relaxing into the deep satisfaction of a job well done and a vision for social justice set into motion.
