Post 178

I started my travelswithallene blog on May 31, 2020.  It is hard to believe a year has gone by!

In addition to blogging three times/week, over the past year I have:

  • Launched a mystery book club with my chums and read more books than I can count, usually mysteries of course
  • Zoomed with friends approximately 90 times – some involving books, others involving cocktails
  • Knit 17 afghans of various sizes, 21 cowls and 7 scarves
  • Logged many steps on my Fitbit on my daily walks around my neighborhood
  • Supported my husband during his shoulder replacement surgery
  • Watched 61 old movies with my husband, mostly film noir
  • Also drank countless glasses of wine with my husband during our nightly happy hour
  • Watched in horror as insurrectionists stormed our nation’s Capitol
  • Received both doses of my COVID 19 vaccine
  • And the list goes on……

I looked back at my first post which was written one year ago right after George Floyd’s murder.  I said:

There are many different aspects, but the one I am feeling most keenly today is that of a mother or grandmother. I can’t begin to imagine the fear they have for their Black children and grandchildren EVERY SINGLE DAY!

I have to wonder if parents or grandparents are any less fearful for the safety of their Black children one year later??????

See you on Wednesday with Post 179,
