Fishing in Pittsburgh

 I snapped this photo of a Toronto fisherwoman  a couple of years ago.  Checking the nets was clearly her job, her livelihood, but I like to think that she’s fishing for all of us, fishing for freedom…..

You know, I find it ironic and surprising to be announcing myself to the world as a Pittsburgh feminist, since I hated the city when I arrived here.  Having grown up in Southern California, I found the endless gray days hard.   But I’ve also found the best feminist friends I’ve ever had here.  Thank you, Anger Management Girls!!!  Some of you don’t yet say the f-word, funnily enough.  I’m fishing here.
