And mostly, I am thankful to all of you reading my series of writings, musings & hazy remembrances.
And my wish for us all:
May 2018 be the year where our popular culture leads the way in transforming a troubling state off affairs in our country. With movements like #metoo and Blklivesmatter we can continue to ramp it up and keep the pressure on to effect real change. And there will always be wheels already invented, those which we can use simply by examining our successes in the past – especially from an era where I believe we were at our best – those mercurial 1970s.
Happy Holidays to everyone!
