Now is the Time We All Need A Great Leader~

“The duty of a true Patriot is to protect his country from its government.”
– Thomas Paine

Will you stand with us? 

We need words and acts of wisdom, ethics and compassion, from our leaders now more than ever. Since this is utterly lacking, take heart from the words of a truly gifted leader that could never be more relevant than today.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

“Letter from Birmingham Jail,” April 16, 1963

“Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.”

“I Have a Dream”, Washington, D.C., August 28, 1963

My heart breaks for George Floyd, his family, and our country. Are we not better people than this?

There are no cheers…

Skagit Valley: Tulip Festival

During a visit to my cousin who lives in Everett Washington, she took me to the Tulip Festival in the Skagit Valley. On the drive up there, I thought about the possibilities; floral arrangements, a few fields of Tulips and how lovely they would be. Perhaps a photo or two would be in order. However, I was not quite prepared for how beautiful it actually was.

From 1-30 April each year, hundreds of thousands make the journey to witness this annual celebration of spring. With a backdrop of the North Cascade you will not lack for things to do.  Besides, the photos were too pretty to waste! Thanks for indulging me.

Bisous, Léa
