A picture is worth 1,000 words

For those of you who may not have noticed, I wanted to call your attention to something new we have done with the Flickr stream on the left-hand side of the blog. During the election, we were streaming shots from the campaign, and appreciate everyone who contributed photos of walking, phoning and election-night festivities! But as we are now without an active campaign (at least for several more weeks!) we have connected this blog to the California group photo pool on Flickr.com.
The group is one of the largest on Flickr, made up from people spread all across the state, so the photos featured change very frequently. At any given moment, this photo stream will give you a little glimpse of California — its natural wonders, its simple pleasures, its people, its landmarks, its spirit. For us it evokes the deep love and committment to California that we share; the sense of pride and patriotism for our progressive history that motivates us to work hard every day to beat back the forces that threaten that history and continue pushing forward.
We hope it will provide you, as it has us, ongoing inspiration for the political work we are all doing to effect real progressive change in this state.
