While Activist and Author Starhawk's words did not leave me feeling a new mission to go out, protest, and get arrested (as she has done on so many occasions -- although I do think I'll do that sometime before I die) I do suppose that kind of “activist mentality” will envelope and fully inspire all those who attend her weekend presentations in Seattle (while I must stay home due to my necessity to work so I can attend her rally again someday in the future).
Last night, Starhawk repeatedly made the audience laugh. She admitted choosing the night's topic was a long process and planning transpired before the U.S. presidential election. She admitted she could not decide, at the time, if her topic was going to be about how to move forward as an activist under Obama’s presidency – or, should the "other guy" get elected, be about how to not kill ourselves.

Starhawk, if you don't know her, is a widely publicized Wiccan Witch. Here's a (very dated) documentary that plays the same Goddess song she sang last night, where the lyrics in their entirety are: "She changes everything she touches and everything she touches changes."
