real-time reflections on the struggle for our country's soul


Hi. I’m Alicia. More about me at This blog is an exploration of – and (I hope) a source of support for – the spiritual lives of ordinary Americans in the Resistance against the Trump Administration. Our reality is changing daily and I needed a way to think about it in real-time. As a writer, and a person of (Jewish) faith, a blog seemed to be the answer. It’s an experiment.

A word about “Spiritual Resistance.” Originally this phrase refers to the victims of Nazi Germany and ways in which they resisted spiritually, artistically and culturally when they could not resist physically. As a Jew I respect the differences between 1930’s Germany and this moment in America, but on the other hand, the similarities are chilling. So the echo is intentional, but the meaning is different.
