Art, Activism and Attitude: An Interview with Donna Barr
Donna Barr, a woman I have known for over 20 years, her passion for looking at the world in all its facets -- good AND bad -- is what I love about her. This is a no fluffy-rainbows-and-unicorns woman, but one who sees everything about the world that needs repair and redress and dives in. Whether its pointing out human foibles and blind spots through her characters, championing the environment or calling on people to rethink their ossified attitudes, there is never a dull moment around this woman.
Donna Barr (born 1952) is recognized as one of the classic authors of the 1980's black-and-whites comic books. Her series "The Desert Peach" and "Stinz" are much beloved, and their characters continue in the series "Afterdead," along with her people from "Bosom Enemies" and "Hader and the Colonel." Her latest projects are The Desert Peach Musical, and the 2014 Clallam Bay Comicon (Both available on Facebook, and links at http://www.donnabarr.com).
About Corbie Mitleid:
Corbie Mitleid has been on the mystic’s path for over 30 years -- meeting challenges, always questioning, leading the “examined life.” It’s proved to her an essential Cosmic Truth: God gives all of us what we need for a life filled with miracles and joy, and as long as our hearts are open, whole, and aligned with our Source Energy, anything is possible. (And it never hurts to bring laughter on the path with us!) If she can share that blessing with you, she feels she's doing things right.
While she’s now a full time intuitive counselor and psychic medium, her career has encompassed positions as a professional actress, television producer, radio personality, executive recruiter and “power behind the throne” for a number of high-profile CEOs. Corbie knows what it is to live life on a roller coaster with no brakes: she’s survived divorce, abuse, poverty and life-threatening illness, always maintaining her strength, courage and humor. “We have opportunities we can go after, and challenges to get past. After dancing with breast cancer three times, I learned that first-hand. My job is to give you the tools and courage to deal with both situations. Everything else is free will, and up to you!”
Corbie travels internationally, bringing insight, hope and encouragement to clients dealing with indecision, confusion, fear, even depression. Now she expands her work to a worldwide radio audience.
