February is Black History Month and I saw Clint Smith’s Brief but Spectacular moment last week on PBS Newshour. It is so powerful and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Insomnia strikes again. I am not sure what it is, but it now seems like a habit that I wake at the 2 AM hour and I am sure it has nothing to do with the stereo snoring going on, right?
Through the Loops MKAL socks are both done through clue #1 – I caught up sock #2 yesterday while catching up with Victoria. Now, I have to tell you that the V&A in London is one of my favorite museums in the world. I really love history and I am enjoying tremendously watching this PBS series.
I have made more calls to my representatives in the past three weeks than I care to admit. Do I feel this is successful? Yes, and no. Will I stop? Nope. It is the most important thing I do right now.
Tell Trump’s economic advisors to stand up against the Muslim ban.
That is all I have for today – have a good Tuesday everyone!
I love the colors you chose for the socks; they look great! During my first visit to Monticello, I was amazed at the house, crops, and plantings, until it dawned on me that slaves had done it all. Still amazing, but at that time the docents were speaking as if this had all been accomplished by Jefferson himself. I’m still making calls also (re: DeVos, Sessions, and removing Bannon from NSC), and will continue.

Resist until there is nothing to resist. I’m enjoying Victoria, too, although I am now an episode behind.
Ugh. I just read the news about confirmation of our new Education Secretary… and I am sick.
We just have to keep pushing. That’s all there is to it. (Love your socks.)
I was feeling hopeful and then I read about the appointment of Devos. But we can’t.give.up and we won’t. Love your sock picture, the shadows and lights are really striking.
Love the colors of the socks…thanks for the link to Clint Smith’s Brief but Spectacular moment…so very eloquent and appropriate for not only Black History Month but these very trying times. We are in the process of convening a huddle this week…plus doing what each individual can. The news just gets wearier and scarier, doesn’t it?
Your beautiful socks are a bright spot today. The news is just so extremely tiresome and frightening.
Keep on keepin’ on… it helps to have great knitting projects (love those socks!) and friends to share it all with.
I’ve been enjoying Victoria as well. Some of the folks on the Ravelry PBS board have been a little critical of its inaccuracies, but I’m watching it because it’s a drama, not a documentary.
I’ve tapered off (again) for obsessively watching news feeds. It’s a struggle and I’m far better off being unplugged for my sanity. Your socks are lovely 🙂
thank you for sharing the pbs news brief – excellent and very well put
