Reuven Carlyle on Tax Inequality

OK, this is not Subud related AND it is politics, but this may be the main issue affecting quality of life in the State of Washington. (OK, maybe after ACD.)

State Representative Reuven Carlyle is one of the most articulate and focused legislators in the state. Son of longtime Subud member Hadiyah Carlyle (and of you’ve not read her book Torch in the Dark, you should), he is in this important video showing us how bad the tax system is in Washington.

Washington Is on the march

Hadiyah Carlyle reads at Elliott Bay Books


Torch in the Dark


Please consider attending a reading by your Subud sister Hadiyah Carlyle. Her powerful new memoir, Torch in the Dark, has been released and she will read Sunday, June 3 at 2:00 at Seattle’s legendary Elliott Bay Books.

The book is a brilliant look at how one woman overcame the tremendous obstacles of a horribly traumatic childhood to become a single parent welder 3,000 miles from her native New Jersey to raise a son who would become a State Representative.

The writing is concise and completely compelling. I read the last 150 pages in one sitting. Wow!

Reading at Elliott Bay is a landmark in any local writer’s career as a writer. Come show your support as Hadiyah celebrates the release of this chronicle of her remarkable life.
