A quote from the writer Kate Morton “Purpose has been his life raft.”
In my case, the purpose for Mutualism Queensland has been to position my organised radical work onto the political spectrum so as to make the distinctions – unique and / or specific identifiers – clear to an audience.
So what has been the hold up?
Meaning 1 of “hold up” = maintaining support for the idea of a Queensland-specific Banner for an education and community activism focus. This required a localised message.
Meaning 2 of “hold up” = coping with chronic shortages of necessary resources due to my determination to be independent and self funding. This required surviving from an incredibly deficient resource base.
Therefore my community development activities have been my life raft.
