Are you doing doggie day swim next weekend??
A Sioux Indian Story The Creator gathered all of creation and said “I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it. It is the realization that they create their own reality” The eagle said, “Give it to me, I will take it to the moon”. The Creator said, “No. One day they will go there and find it”. The salmon said, “I will hide it at the bottom of the ocean”. “No. They will go there too”. The buffalo said “I will bury it on the great plains”. The Creator said, “They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it there”. Then Grandmother Mole, who lives in the breast of Mother Earth, and has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes said, “Put it inside them”. And the Creator said, “It is done”. The book WALLS is based on the belief that life is not a series of unrelated random events. There is a process to how people gather and evaluate information and make the choices that direct their life. WALLS offers an opportunity for you to step out of your daily routine and explore some issues that have a tremendous impact on how you create your reality and direct your life towards the outcome you desire.

Although, I am not in New York City, I had some professional experiences and personal experiences as it relates to New York city. "Artists are a workforce, and they ought to be recognized as such," writes Elizabeth Alexander. "And while the legacies of other workers can and do shape our lives, artists profoundly and uniquely influence how we experience and envision the world around us through the work they undertake." #past #black #female #memories #adult #communication afrika-abneyartist.weebly.com (Professional Artist Website) https://time.com/6072837/mellon-foundation-artists-covid-19

Dear DPR: please construct more outdoor pickleball courts within the district that have permanent nets installed. It’s also critical that pickleball courts have a spacious perimeter so that we can serve without interference from a wall — which is unfortunately the case at Rose Park in Georgetown, for example. Please consult orgs like DC Pickleball Club when constructing pickleball courts so that the courts are made to the appropriate standard for pickleball enthusiasts. #morepickleballcourts please! #washingtondc Thank you.
