They are the champions!

Each woman who stands up against the storm of the world's displeasure empowers the next, and the next. I salute Naomi Osaka for risking the lightning strike! I wonder if her taking a stand against exploitation and abuse in the name of Sport actually gave Simone Biles the push to standing up for... Sign in to see full entry.

Bubblewrap. My mom used to fall down a lot, and we told her we should wrap her in bubblewrap. Today, talking about bumping into things a lot due to my wonky eyesight, the topic came up again. Bubblewrap hat... maybe a turban! Because it would be so elegant. Then this: *scene on a bus, train, or any... Sign in to see full entry.

More of ancient China

I have found another historical drama from China, set in the century before the first Empire. It is during the Warring States period which, if I recall correctly, lasted ~500 years.

Memorial Day, here in the US... A day for remembrance, for appreciation, for thanks to those who served, to those who died, to the many whose lives were changed irrevocably.

Copied over from my Facebook page
