Love letter to Wisconsin, Part 3

Good morning, Wisconsin.

Without getting too political here, this is a scary time for our state. Our rights are under attack and just sitting down and taking it is not an option. I’m not sure quite yet what my plan is for taking action, but this morning I am thinking about all of the good things about Wisconsin and trying to send all positive vibes our states’ way. Here is the start of a list, in no particular order:

1. The Green Bay Packers

The Packers, owned by thousands of Wisconsinites, just showed THIS MUCH HEART and won a little football match called the Super Bowl.

2. The University of Wisconsin System

The Memorial Union Terrace

From world-class professors, stem cell research, and ‘Varsity’,Β to ice cream,Β beer and popcorn at the terrace and the Rathskellar, I love the UW.

3. The Wisconsin Film Festival

After working in the box office for the festival two years ago, this event has become one of my favorite things about Wisconsin. It’s where I first saw ‘Food, Inc.’ (which completely changed my way of thinking about food and the environment) and a charming film called ‘The Beetle,’ a documentary about a man living in Jerusalem who decided to trace the history of his VW Beetle. Seeing an email about this event in my inbox last night made me infinitely happy.

I’m off to go cross-country skiing, so this list is to be continued….
