Hi.  I’m Shannon.

Me, doing sporty things

Me, doing sporty things on Humboldt Bay

I like hanging with my daughter and her papa, doing sporty things, fighting injustice, cooking from scratch, reading the New Yorker, and trying to keep up with family and friends scattered all over the place.  I live in Oakland, CA but someday I hope to move back to the Humboldt Bay Area, where I lived from 2004-2008.

I don’t like grapefruit, corporate capitalism, driving, clothes shopping, doing breaststroke, and the distance between me and my family.  I currently work in transportation advocacy – trying to provide more non-driving options for the world – and have been an organizer for democracy, trees, and clean water in the past.

This blog is intended to be a mix of personal stuff and commentary about the broader world.  I used to write a lot – poetry, journaling, letters – and now I mostly write action alerts and press releases, which are useful but somewhat formulaic.  No plans for the great American novel, but I am hoping this blog will get me back into writing and hopefully provide some entertainment for my peeps and perhaps beyond.

    This is something I’ll watch. Thanks, Shannon! I always like your take on things.
    Plus, I look forward to baby pics, too!
