For Book Beginnings at Rose City Reader and Friday 56 at Freda’s Voice ,
here is a book I used for these two memes earlier as well but had never got around to finishing the book (mostly due to time constraints at that time). And today, with all the posts floating around via social media about President Obama’s Book Picks, I noticed this book and remembered that I had never gotten around to finishing it. So, picking it up again, and will be reading it over the weekend as hundreds of thousands will be joining the Women’s March on Washington

For Book Beginnings:
I am born on a Tuesday at University Hospital
a country caught
between Black and White.
These are our almost friends, the people
we think about when we’re tired of playing
with each other.
For Photo Friday, both the photos below
For Orange You Glad it’s Friday
This is of a rose from our garden (taken earlier) and that is definitely one of my favorite pastimes – photographing right in our backyard – there is so much to explore right there
For Friday Skywatch
This photo was taken as we drove out of Grand Canyon National Park during our road trip recently (Dec 2016).
