While friends to the north are knee deep in snow, here in Virginia it is 60 degrees.
My contribution to Monochromia this week. My contribution with the terrible caption 🙂
We’ve all seen the signs.
Clever ones. Funny ones. Instructive ones. Angry ones.
I’ve got dozens of photos of signs, but frankly, I’m having trouble processing them.
I’m too busy calling my elected officials, attending card writing parties, and planning an event to help Elect More Women.
I’ll be back to regular posting when things settle down a bit.
In the meantime, let’s all try to love one another a little more.
I find that I have to keep the tissues close at hand as the emotions of 1/21/2017 overwhelm me.
Millions marched the world over.
More than 500,000 in DC with no arrests.
Not one negative comment or action did I witness.
Solidarity. Love. Passion. Commitment. Unity.
As my good friend and fellow marcher, Jim, noted “Now it is time to see that this marvelous moment becomes a meaningful movement that perseveres forward toward a future where justice and equality prevail. We shall not rest”.
That is our challenge.
About these images: As we walked the 2 miles along East Capitol St, from RFK Stadium to the rally site, the people who lived there welcomed us with signs, high fives (and high walkers), cheers and thumbs up.
As you might imagine, I have hundreds of photos to process. I’ll be sharing more about this historic march as the days and weeks go by. I realize that not all of you agree with me on these issues, but for those who do:
Let’s Make it a Movement!
I’ve already planned a Let’s Elect More Women event and havee got a postcard writing party in the works.
Peter Nowell designed this poster for the Women’s March on Washington. It is freely available for anyone to share and use. Peter Nowell, when sharing this design said:
“When I heard about the Women’s March, I felt inspired by the causes behind it and how inclusive it is. Contributing a poster design felt like an opportunity for me to show up for, and support, so many of the people that I love.
Let’s use it to spread the word and inspire even more people to join. You can share it on social media, print it out, remix it… it belongs to all of us”
Thank You, Peter Nowell!
I look forward to marching in DC next week, surrounded by women, men, and children from all over our nation. I will walk with them, and in spirit with people who will be marching in every state, and in some countries around the world. I will also walk for those who will not be able to walk whether because of work, finances, or ability.
I know that Alys from Gardening Nirvana will be marching in San Jose. Where will YOU be marching?
It is hard to tell, but the snow was still falling when I took this image, allowing us, as my friend Jim over at Poetry in Motion said, to walk on virgin earth.
As I write this post, quickly before leaving for work, I am pondering if after 4 1/2 years it is time to freshen up my blog. I’ve not changed a thing since I first stepped onto the virgin earth of this blog space. Perhaps it is time.
