usually i like to keep the mood light here, as i'm sure you've noticed. and we will return to regular scheduled programming of outfits, cupcakes, cats, and life happenings after this...
but well, this is a life happening for me. and there's been something pretty major going on that i feel like i can't ignore... even though most of the other blogs i follow have been pretty quiet about it.
i'm not sure how many of my readers have been following occupy wall street, but it's something i've grown passionate about quickly. on saturday we went to the protest in times square, and it was a wonderful and energizing experience. there were 20,000 people there of all ages, races, and religions.
maybe you think it's hippie bullshit. i think it affects us all.
perhaps some won't agree (hell, i may even lose followers over this), but i feel it's my duty to post these pictures and spread the word. if you're interested, you should check it out. the movement is spreading to many cities all across the country and worldwide.

this woman sang the national anthem as everyone sat down and sang along. an entire crowd of voices singing along.
next time i'm bringing my tambourine & glockenspiel... music everywhere!
