Honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Honoring RBG

On September 29th, Olympia Indivisible sponsored a peaceful rally to honor the legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Friends and neighbors masked up and social distanced on Fourth Avenue in downtown Olympia. Our signs said RUTH SENT US:

To Protect the Supreme Court
To Flip the Senate
To Win the White House
To Phone Bank, Text, and Donate
To Save Democracy
And Vote Early! Use Ballot Boxes
Learn How: OlympiaIndivisible.org

A set of photographs on my Flickr account document some of the rallies of the past three years as well as this group.

Night Walk Night Hawks

Night Walk Night Hawks

A walk around downtown Olympia on a drizzly spring Friday night inspires this post. Viewers who are familiar with my approach know that I’m a creature of habit, returning to locations time and again, to see and record changes that occur over time. I’ve shared some of those experiences in previous posts and add a few new images.

Sunrise

 


Following up on my post about the unusual snowfall last week, with the melt-off in progress, and the full moon of yesterday entering its waning gibbous phase, we were treated to this sunrise just over the southern edge of Mt. Rainier.
