Still marching after all these years....

What a great day in Seattle (and around the country) when thousands and thousands of folks marched for Civil Rights. Yes, hard to believe, but in 2008 we are still marching for Civil Rights. We have an African American President elect and we are *still* marching for Basic Civil Rights. Dude. and another popular slang -- WTF? This is the front line of the thousands who marched. I couldn't begin to capture the enormity of it all, it was spectacular.
The park just kept filling up and filling up. We moved to the Westlake Center to stand above the crowd for a wee bit of space for little man, he was too excited about all the love and justice to sleep for the longest time, but that space and relative quiet did allow him to have a bit of a nap eventually.
I love this kid's sign. "When do I get to vote on your marriage?" She put her heart into that artwork.
Partly cloudy with a chance for justice and love. Dude it reigned in Seattle.

C!!!!!!!
Loving the view of baby's back of head.
Cold here in the high desert but crafting up a storm! 3 crepe paper crowns, paper ornaments, cathedral window ornaments--nothing too exotic. Trying to figure out how to make an art quilt using these awesome photos of women wearing sweaters from a magazine, circa late 40s early 50s.
Church is wonderful and growing. Baptizing 3 children tomorrow. Great find for the little man at the local thrift store. He's gonna love it
