Lady Liberty is a symbol of freedoms to millions around the world. Minding my own business and getting some outdoor exercise, I came across a neon green interpretation of this monumental statue. Lovely strangers took a shot of me next to this replica. I posted it to Instagram. Almost everyone commented on the camo joggers that I was wearing and NOT the the hashtags , #letsallbefriends or #inclusive is #beautiful.
I rarely post anything with political overtones, but I was hoping that this shot of Lady Liberty, or her neon facsimile, would have gotten some attention given recent headline news. Often I reflect on such matters.
I am not going to dive into political commentary, but I will say that this is a time where everyone should be reaching out to find common ground. Please!
This is NOT the time to add fire to the ire ( sorry, I had to put that in) that is stoked by so many media outlets.
Reach out and look inward. We have much more in common than we we think.
Learn from Lady Liberty!
Back to the mundane and fashionable. Not that I am dressed in a remotely inspirational way. I chose my clothes purely for comfort. What will be light weight and warm; which bag is light ? Practical choices, all.
My camo joggers were bought locally and from a mom and pop shop. NO links to share, as I have the utmost of faith that you, my dear readers, can find something similar. Okay, I will post ONE, these are from Bloomingdale’s are very similar.. I will say that my shirt, also bought in my neighborhood from another mom and pop store, is a whisper light woven blend of cashmere and cotton! Quality that will last!
This happened to be a perfect day in terms of temperature. After months of excessive heat and rain, a cool day with the optimal amount of cloud cover was so appreciated!
As I ambled home, I snapped some quick photos of colorful foliage and gems in bloom.
Diversity in nature is divine.
I ended this lovely afternoon on my rooftop, where I took some time to be still. Gratitude, pure gratitude, is what I experienced there on my perch. Wishing to share this, I add this post to my roster.
OH, THE LONG AND DRAMATIC SHADOWS OF THE DAY’S END.
What does Lady Liberty mean to you? How are you coping with this changing world?
