Transcript The WAND is a monthly publication of Womynspace, an organization designed by and for womyn, and operated by a steering committee. Opinions expressed in articles printed herein do not neccessarily reflect the views of the editors of the WAND or the Womynspace organization as a whole. Submissions to the calendar must be camera-ready,with three inch columns. Groups may send us notice of their regular meetings and special events by the 15th of the month for the next month's issue. We are glad to network with other groups that work for social change and share a feminist perspective. Submissions of articles, poetry and cover art should have positive, coalition building content and will be printed at the discretion of the Newletter Committee. Articles maybe submitted on IBM type diskettes, 5.25" or 3.5", ASCII format. Submissions must be signed; specify your byline or if you wish your name to be withheld. Women contributing articles are invited to the WAND layout, around the 20th of the month at 6:30pm (check the WAND calendar). Please include a phone number with any submissions so we can call you if significant editing is required due to lenght.etc. We print as much as space allows: current events are first priority. We would like to have a portfolio of material we could use in future WAND issues when we have a quiet month with less events and more space for articles or poetry. For return of any material, please enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope. We need community support to ensure the WAND is a comprehesive networking directory for the women's community. Womynspace is a 100% volunteer organization. Advertising Rates for the WAND Camera ready artwork may be sent along with the payment for the ad to WOMYNSPACE. P.O.Box 980601 .Houston 77098.

Womynspace produces a Halloween and Valentina dance and two retreats, usually in the fall and spring; events are womyn only and chem-free. We respect the diversity of the women's community and at this point of Woraynspace's herstory, many of our active members are not chem-free, but we feel it benefits the community to provide chem-free space. Essentially, chem-free means smokers smoke outside and drinkers drink at a restaurant or bar after the event with other Womynspace supporters. Finding affordable rental space for dances and other events has always been a problem. Aquiring permanent community space is a long-term goal of Womynspace.

I 'j USBIAN/GAY RIGHTS! ohby OF TEXAS M Contact Laurie Eiserioh for more information, 512-474-5475. L For Immediate Release The Allan G. Calkin Fund, the research and education branch of the Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas, announces the commencement of phase two its statewide appointments project. During her term of office, Governor Richards will male over 4,000 appointments to state boards and commissions. These boards and commissions regulate everything from the statewide university systems to the coordination of statewide health care. Persons appointed to state boards and commissions set public policy and are considered appointed state officials. It is imperative for lesbian/gay people to be appointed to a significant number of these state boards and commissions. 'The lesbian/gay rights movement is in a place comparable to the women's rights movement of 20 years qgo," stated I_aurie Bserloh, Executive Director of the Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas and its companion organization, the Allan G. Calkin Fund. "In order for us to advance the cause of our community, lesbian/gay people must be appointed to important government posts." In an effort to secure these appodntmeiits, the Calkin Fund has initiated an appointments project. Phase one of tins project has already resulted in the appointments of lesbian and gay people to several important positions, including the judiciary, the funeral commission, and the Texas Department of Health. Phase two of this project is a statewide call for resumes to build the pool of potential candidates for appointments. A list of appointments important to the lesbian/gay community has been sent to LGRL members across tbe state. Additional copies of this list will be made available at LGRL events and at interested lesbian/gay businesses. "The list includes appointments to a variety of boards and commissions," Eiserioh explained. "I had two criteria in creating this list from the possible list of 4,000 appointments. Firstly, I looked ___ at areas such as health care and the arts where diselimination is taking place. Secondly, I chose boards and coiiL-uiSsioiiS governing industries where a large number of iesbian and gay peopie are employed, such as the cosmetology board." Eiserioh stressed that individuals wishing to participate on a board or commission not on the list should nevertheless submit a resume to the LGRL. If you areinterested in a state board or commission, if your business is interested in receiving copi of the list, or if you would like to make a tax deductible donation to the Calkin Fund to help su this project, please contact the Calkin Fund at PO Box 2579 Austin, TX 78768. Dreamside of Reality From the mist of a dream with sweet feelings, so content, I watched you, studied you in a moment that we spent. I saw in all your faces the changes left behind in the subtle traces of your smile, so genuine. The changing shape of middle age, your body, you'd fuss about. Accuse yourself of getting fat look in the mirror and pout. But I looked at your nakedness and marveled at the way your flawless skin shimmered and how the light did play off your luscious curves. I watched your motion, your timeless ballet, in all your preparation. I sat and I did stare my attention on every detail. Your makeup, your graying hair, your suit and accessories, selected with such care to finish the look. Oh how it turned me on, swirled my heart and head until all my reason was gone. Igniting my passions and desire, so all I wanted to do was dismantle it all, piece by piece slowly, make love to you. So what if we were late. There were more important things at hand The corporate world would have to wait. Be second to love's demand. As I took you in my arms a distant ringing broke the calm. I cursed quietly and closed my eyes but you were already gone. Again, the experience, denied, the longing in the heart of emotions undefined. Worlds that hold us apart from the sweetest kiss that would be mine. My body pulsed with feelings. I still saw you in my mind. Half in each reality a heartbeat out of time. Which world was I in? I didn't really care. In one you don't exist the other, you are there. I'll close my eyes another night and you will come to me and I will have all of you on the dreamside of reality. <^s^su^^ contempo and eclectic ▼ art ^F furnishings ^F potpourri, candles ^pr Jewelry, accessories yf casual ar\d career clothes patti oriot 1633 W.
