Jan. 21 and the sea of pink

There was really never any chance that I'd be able to make it to the Women's March today--my body doesn't deal well with the early part of the day even on my better days, and today is emphatically not one of my better days. But I've been happy to see pictures of the marches all over the world (Antarctica too!), and some of the signs out there are glorious.

One of my neighbors left the DC march early because she was in too much pain to stay; but she described the event as "very friendly, with a great spirit" and was glad she'd gone. Here's hoping people continue to be active in all the right ways from now on. Rule by the people means something more than getting in a voting booth every few years, after all.

Too migrainey to say what I want to say right now. Maybe in the near future I'll be able to get it out?

i saw some coverage of antarctica too,and my sis sent me an article about a nursing home who did a march in their building,which i thought was great! i was glad to hear of all the gatherings and the good press and it seems,goodwill of the marches. it gives me hope as even the little bit of news i'm listening to is oherwise hard to deal with. ah,but it doesn't help that it is january,either,with my layer of s.a.d.,hurray! sorry to hear you have a migraine and i hope you are feeling better now.
