Why Bread and Roses?

As I try to explain my resume to people that I've never met before, I frequently find myself going back to the old labour song, "Bread and Roses".

I've worked for about equal number of years in social justice/political advocacy roles and in arts management. To me these activities are two sides of the same coin.

We toil for our daily bread but the soul needs roses too.

Hi Linda,
I like your analogy. Like you I'm feeling my way through blogworld. I'm training as an arts educator and am interested in using blogs as a learning medium. I'm especially interested in the idea of the blog as an artists book, so just today I set up my blog technojaywalker, to make a start, hope to post some images on it soon.

Hi Jane, I was delighted to see the first comment here. Wow!!

And I'm fascinated by your plans. Coincidentally, I have been receiving some wonderful art by email from a friend of mine who is in India for six months. Indian by birth himself he is having a rather transformative time working in Varanasi in literacy programs.
