Women's March in NYC, 1/21/2017
Yesterday TQ and I joined up with a bunch of paddling friends for the Women's March in NYC. He and I never actually got to march, the number of people that turned out exceeded expectations and it took more time to get things moving than we had (lost a friend in December and his memorial service was yesterday, wouldn't have missed that for anything and I'm very glad we went), but we can at least say that we took a stand! Amazing day in NYC, powerful and peaceful. Thank you Mary for putting this together, and to Melinda Beck for permission to use her artwork as a sign (she's an amazing graphic designer and this was for a recent editorial by John Kerry in the NY Times - she shared it on Facebook and I loved it), and to everyone out there who marched yesterday. What a day. Here's a bunch of pictures - no more writing, click on the first picture for a slideshow view.
