Dear Linda,

Thank you so much for this – it is wonderful. Encouraging and really pertinent to what I am trying to achieve.
I will see what can be put together – and thank you again for the opportunity potentially to screen the U-tube video.

There was another contribution by you – which was the interview with Hilary Robinson – that you did.
I’ve attached it – just to ensure you have it for your own records. No need to add further comments.

Lots of love and best wishes,


Katy Deepwell,
Editor of n.paradoxa

LINDA MARY MONTANO  STATEMENT RESPONSE: FOR KATY DEEPWELL/NPARADOXA

How did the article/interview/artist project that you published in n.paradoxa represent a moment in your own intellectual history?

MY article  MONEY IS GREEN TOO MANIFESTO was born when I attended OCCUPY WALLSTREET  NYC and saw/felt/smelled the result of focusing on $$$$$$$$$$ only to the detriment of inner peace, especially when I read   one of the signs: COMPASSION IS THE NEW CURRENCY.
Being at this demonstration was like being in a war. It was trerrifying and big and momentous. I felt I might get killed.
Money had already killed me because I grew up in daily reminders of it's importance. My parents were depression-30's survivors and  second generation immigrants--Ireland and Italy...They worked themselves to soul death, almost, and I feared eating because they had to work sooo hard to feed us.

BY escaping the stink of money I entered a convent at  19 and didn't last, leaving 2 yeas later going from 135-80 pounds, food and emotional traumas still issues.
Because my art is my life, and money was/is still a big life-brain toxicity, I wrote about it, made a video about money and still go to therapy about it!!! And I'm 75! You would think, wouldn't you?



 Was it the start of an area of work for you or the end of something?
My relationship to money will only get better with intense meditation and time and maybe loss of ability to count?


Was it a continuation of long-term interests or a one-off?
Not a one-off. Am grateful to n.paradoxa   for listening to my money "share."

 Maybe you have a story or anecdote about reactions to the journal from colleagues? Or something that happened as a result of publication?
n.paradoxa   and England aer always held with HIGH ESTEEM In America and with our current leader DT in "charge" we wonder why we ever left your shores!!!!
