Welcome to EVOKE! Curious about how you're involved with Hexayurt - I hadn't heard about it until Josh Judkins mentioned it in one of his missions + it sounds really resourceful/useful. Look forward to your contributions!

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

Charleston has an exhibit opening up with pieces of old african art and sculptures. Every piece of art, quilts and dolls, is beautiful and engaging in their own way… Many of them address the mermaids that followed the slave ships to return the souls…
