You might already have seen this picture: it was all over my Facebook feed, as well as in the Chicago Tribune this week. I saw it and was fascinated by her eyelashes and had to share it with you. The entire article is here. I not only noticed her eyelashes, but also the fact that she seems to be wearing iPhone earbuds as she took her selfie. Well, that says something about the resilience of the phone's battery, don't you think? According to the article, it was way below anything I could imagine, somewhere around minus 80°F. Yikes!
Here come the walkers
This morning it was downright balmy here in Bellingham, temperature well above freezing and a chance of rain (it didn't, really, but last night's rain is evident in this shot). We walked around Zuanich Park, a short one of between four and five miles. Some of us then went off to join the Women's March for Peace and Justice in solidarity with several more cities around the country.
Colorful flags and blue skies
By the time I arrived at City Hall for the march, there were thousands of people already there. It was probably a smaller gathering than a year ago, but there were many more people with signs bearing a positive message this year. With the same sense of being around so many people demonstrating our right to peaceful assembly, something not everyone around the world is able to do, I was so pleased to be a part of this wonderful and harmonious crowd.
