The March

Some signs (and an inspiring book) at the
Women's March in New York this past
Saturday.  So uplifting, so much fun, SO many
wonderful people (about a half million)!

inSPIREd Sunday

This is the spire of the church of
Saint-Germain, in Paris—
built (and rebuilt) for the past
15 centuries.

The Weekend in Black and White

Normally, I try not to do this—that is, repeat
a photo.  But a) hey, I like this photo a lot
and b) this is the starting point for NYC's
women's march, and where I'll be today at 1 p.m.,
when those of us with names beginning
with the letter A or B get to join the march,
which will end up eventually at Trump Tower.

Watch this space.

Tough Day

Each of us is entitled to our opinion, 
and this is mine.  Feel like
I need to put it out there (you know,
just in case anyone was wondering
how a born-and-bred New York liberal
would be feeling today).  Oy.

Thursday Challenge—"best/favorite photo of 2016 (#2)"

Last week for this meme I posted what
I thought was my best photo
of 2016.  Still on the theme (and another
difficult choice), my favorite is
probably this one of a very rare young
clouded leopard that visited
my office back in July.

ABC Wednesday—B is for "books"

Somewhere in Paris, someone filled a
shop window with stacks and
stacks of books.  Good luck finding any
particular tome you're looking for,
but obviously that's not the point here—and
it does make kind of a nifty display.

So long, Santa

It's finally (past) time to pack up all
the Christmas things.  This Santa
was handmade and hand-painted and
signed by someone named Fran (I think)
Deckel (I think), on Cape Cod.  Was
able to
 find precisely nothing on the Internet,
so suffice it to say that this makes me
 happy for a month or so each year
and I hate to put it away.
