Mindful, Day 206, Beautiful Heart

Saw this charming drawing on a driveway this morning while walking. Thinking about why the little figure looks so sad in the middle of the beautiful heart. Another untold story.

Mindful, Day 204, Baby Feet

What could be softer or more cuddly then a baby's little feet? We were passing around my grand niece at the concert in the park last night and everyone enjoyed thier chance to hold her and make her smile.

Mindful, Day 203, Wiggly Teeth

My great-niece wiggling away at her loose tooth! She and her friends were all busy comparing the various states of their front teeth at the park tonight. Brings back memories.  The suspense of waiting for the tooth fairy to come and leave you something special!

Just as the lilies from last week are starting to fade this new lemony yellow and white one has started to bloom. It looks very cool and refreshing - like a sorbet!

MIndful, Day 200-201, Beaded Leaves

After all the rain we have had this week, the air is saturated. This morning all the flowers are covered with dew drops and the coleus could not be more beautiful with its beaded edges.

Mindful, Day 199, Women's March at Six Months



I am mindful, with this reminder, of how important these actions are for ourselves, our daughters, our grand daughters, our families, our communities, our country.

Six months old & still making history

Can you believe that TODAY is exactly 6 months since millions of us came together, on all seven continents, for the Women’s March? January 21st was the largest single-day demonstration in world history, bringing people of all races, ethnicities, religions, immigration statuses, sexual identities, gender expressions, economic statuses, ages and abilities together to call for a world that is equitable, just and safe for all, where the human rights and dignity of each person is protected and our planet is safe from destruction.
Over the past six months, you’ve been part of an intersectional and inclusive resistance movement aimed at holding corporations, Congress, and the Administration accountable for oppressive agendas that marginalize our vulnerable communities. We’ve accomplished so much already!
• 10 Actions / 100 Days – We turned the energy of the march into a sustained movement, beginning with the spring of resistance!
•  #NoBan Rallies – We united at airports in numbers too great to ignore to stop the Muslim ban.
• A Day Without a Woman – We showed how crucial women are to our economies and our communities with a one-day strike and boycott.
• #DropOReilly – We did that! Bill, bye.
•  Heath Care Demonstrations – Phone calls, letters, protests, sit-ins, die-ins, the massive outcry to protect our health care is terrifying Republicans!
•  NRA2DOJ March – We took on the NRA and marched 18.6 miles for justice for Philando Castile.
After six months, we’re only getting stronger. Women’s March is a nationwide phenomenon and we won’t stop until women’s rights are human rights, for women and femmes of all races, ethnicities, religions, immigration statuses, sexual identities, gender expressions, economic statuses, ages and abilities.

What’s next? We’re going to make history again with the first ever Women’s March conference, a chance for all of us to come together again to learn, build, strategize and organize – towards 2018 and beyond! SAVE THE DATE: October 26-28, and stay tuned for details in the coming weeks.

Thank you for being part of the movement for human rights and dignity for all!
