Well, it’s a new year! And an auspicious time to get the Gero-Punk Salon series up-and-running once again, don’t you think?
If you are in the Portland, Oregon environs, please join me and my co-host Dana-Rae Parker for the first Gero-Punk Salon of 2016!
When & Where: Sunday, February 21st, 2:30-4:30 p.m., Sellwood-Moreland Library
Our theme: Gero-Punk Self-Care.
What is “gero-punk self-care”? Well, one hint is that it focuses on walks (even when it is -10 degrees Fahrenheit!), naps (even if you’ve had a good night’s sleep!), and baths (with two cups of Epsom salts), in any order that suits you. It also involves beautiful food. And sometimes hula-hooping and jumping rope. And deep belly laughs.
What else? In addition to having fun, come prepared to engage in deep conversation about the politics of mainstream notions of self-care and to share ideas about how we might create our own practices for care of self (and others). Remember, to be a gero-punk is to question normative ideology ’bout….well….everything!
Will you join us? I hope so!
