Thursday Thoughts...

“And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.” 

Libya Bray

It feel like it gets harder and harder to think and believe this, yet I know it is the truth and what we all must do.  I don't think I have ever felt so deflated by the state of politics as I am now - on every side, in every country it is awful.

I know that as individuals take a stand, ask questions, challenge the status quo, are kind to each other and to strangers, and persist and persist and persist, we WILL see change.

If I back peddle a bit, and get off my sorry horse (what mangle of metaphors that is!) I definitely feel as if we are at some turning points. I think for women, things are changing. For gay and lesbian and trans people some things are changing.  We are in places, becoming more open, compassionate and kind. And for that I am grateful.

It seems to me it is up to us, 'we the people' as they say, to make that one gesture. To make and mark that moment in time. Together.

  1. (((Fiona))) every gesture of loving kindness helps

    1. So true and we need to just keep doing love and kindness, love and kindness...

  2. For a long time there was a sign in Austin we looked forward to seeing each time we drove by:

    "We the people don't get it"

    It's gone now, but the thought remains truer than ever

    1. That's a nifty one Liz! Indeed 'we the people' have no idea what is being done in our name right now...


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
