Lakeside Fog 060 - Like many, I stopped social posting for a while as another terrible reminder of our country's painful rooting in racism has triggered an important soul searching moment across America. And before I get back to sharing my art, I want to focus a moment on the importance of active anti-racism. Others say it better than I can, but briefly, we've reached a point where being non-racist isn’t enough.
This moment has stripped away any pretense that this is somehow a reflection of political opinion. It's human, and it's right. We must drive positive change with a fully engaged, proactive, empathetic voice. I want to encourage you to lend your voice as well. https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/ is a website that lists several ways you can help move things forward. If we've learned anything over the last decades, it will take more than our own beliefs to right these wrongs. We need to act.
May today's post it be a beat of quiet stillness for you as it is for me.
