Most of us want to see Bush leave the White House yesterday, not a week from yesterday. His time as our president is something we’d like to forget, but that would be a mistake; we don’t want his errors to be repeated. Some awareness is needed.

In celebration of the Lunar New Year, China on Broadway presents Soul of Shaolin at the Marquis Theatre. It tells the story of a young boy who is separated from his mother in the midst of war.


“Magic Passion Love Project” is an ongoing project of Trickydame Productions that shares, promotes and creates products and events to help others manifest their own personal Magic Passion Love (MPL).


Thanks to 9/11 Environmental Action for the heads up.
