Since Halloween, there hasn’t been a day that I haven’t thought of these men and one woman.

Every day, several times per day, I commute the same bike path on which their lives were inexplicably taken. During my daily commute, as I pass the newly installed barriers, I reflect on their spouses, their children, their parents, their community, the impact they had on their world, the impact they will no longer make. I wonder how are they, the left behind, coping? Do they know they are being thought of kindly, compassionately, lovingly? Loss, grief, initially deadens you. You don’t become whole again overnight. The very act of living, despite fear everywhere, is an act of #hope, an act of #faith. (Who amongst us ever thinks when we awake “today is our last day on Earth”?) This evening I rode home, I had to stop to pay my respects. And share a message of #empathy and #respect. All loss is shared. #inmemoriam

Crisp beautiful Fall 🍁 day in #NYC, I do realize how fortunate I am to pass through #CentralPark weekly on my way to work. And no I don’t take a horse and buggy. #autumn #commuterlife #bepresent #BeMoveDo

#storytime 📖 Today while running errands I encountered yet another protest against Trump/Pence, #fascism. And this reminded me of what occurred at the #EastAsiaSummit this week as relayed by #NewZealand’s New Prime Minister #JacindaArden
"I was waiting to walk out to be introduced at the East Asia Summit gala dinner...and while we were waiting, Trump, in jest, patted the person next to him on the shoulder, pointed at me and said, 'This lady caused a lot of upset in her country', talking about the election. "I said, 'Well, you know, only maybe 40 per cent', then he said it again and I said, 'You know', laughing, 'no-one marched when I was elected'. “ #resist #fight #standup

#shutthefrontdoor It’s getting cold. I just bought these @uniqlousa #blocktech pants. I was prepping to wash them before 1st use & read the care label. Not only must these pants be #handwashed it says basically no matter what I do, how I care for them, they are created to last no more than three winters. 😳😱😡#wtf These pants retail for US $40. Who intentionally buys perishable pants!? And I’m stunned #uniqlo thinks it’s okay to bury this information on the inside one inch care label? Even if you don’t care about #sustainability or the #environment or #landfills or #climatechange, do you care about the economics of throwing your hard earned good money away? Is it unrealistic to expect seasonal gear to last longer than 3 years with proper care? #uniqlo #notmybrand #RETURN #baitandswitch #spreadtheword

Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed
That with the sun's love
In the spring
Becomes the rose🌹

#Orange roses were seen as a bridge between friendship symbolized by yellow roses and love represented by red roses. They can be an expression of fascination, or a gift to say 'I'm proud of you.'” Or make for a beautiful photo taken on a photo walk. #orangerose #nybg #autumn #photowalk
