Michael Jacobs  I'm at a rare loss for words right now. After this past week... being in Canada feels like living in an apartment on top of a meth lab ! :-(

Marti,

When it comes right down to it, every life matters regardless of race, religion, color or anything else that makes someone different.  We lived in Los Angeles during the Rodney King debacle followed by riots, and I still remember his words, "can we just get along!"    A

Marti - It's great to see you post on ActiveRain after your long absence. Welcome back!

"Being Silent is Not An Option." Definitely, not an option. If everyone had to pull off their masks and wear blindfolds, indefinitely, for a period of time until there was no more violence or prejudice, I wonder how different things would be?

On a positive note, I am in hopes that everyone will click on the "YouTube," and "Bandcamp Distant Atmospheres;" then subscribe to marti garaughty "soundscapes, music for film and television."

Marti, I thoroughly enjoyed your music! It so soothing and the best I've ever heard. Congratulations on an outstanding accomplishment. I know how hard you worked on your performances. Even though you took a lot of time off from writing blog posts on AR, you stayed focused on your goal and you always managed to read posts and feature posts in the the "Art of Marketing You," group. 

Thank you, for sharing with us your beautiful musical and artistic talent. 

Patricia

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  hi Patricia and thx for sharing your thoughts. I didn't say much in this post, just tired of what I'm seeing in the world, not much has changed since I was a kid. No wonder I feel more comfortable around cats than around people most of the time ! ;-)

 I hope all is well in your part of the world. It's been a seriously crazy year so far and we're not even halfway through 2020 !

marti garaughty - Less is more...

I'm not the person who came up with this thought, but it has been told we are one of the few species on the face of the earth who must protect itself first against our own members. Isn't that interesting?

Whether or not cats are gifted with vision humans can't see, they sure are amazing creatures on earth. 

2020 has been a very unusual year. It's as if time stood still and I want my time back. I really, really wish I was busy in business. Best wishes to you!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  So true... as a species, we seem to be doing a pretty good job of self-destructing these days ! As for wishing to be busy... slowly things are getting back to some kind of normal here, not the previous normal but a new kind of normal. I think the next few months/years will be an ongoing period of adjustment for all of us.

marti garaughty - words like justice and choices will take on new meaning. The failure of justice lies at the feet of politicians, judges, and lawyers. The burden belongs to all. Sadly, one way or another, we shall all pay for these crimes.

Hannah Williams  Yep... I'm seeing that all over the news now. I used to love visiting the U.S. both for doing art exhibits and for vacations. Now I basically have zero desire to cross the border for awhile. I hope you're doing well despite how weird the world is right now !

I"m so sorry to be late reading this, Marti. The coronavirus is one thing, the hate and racism virus is another. It literally brought me to tears for a couple of days. I honestly cannot understand how human beings can act this way.  What the world needs now is love, sweet love. D

marti garaughty - Thanks for the "like" and your visit on my blog post. As always, it's great to see you. I hope everything is going well and that you're accomplishing a lot of great music. 2020 has to go down as the craziest year ever. Let's hope the last few months will be better for all and 2021 ever greater.

Take care!!!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  Hi Patricia... all is good, just hoping to get out of 2020 alive ! On the bright side, Halloween is almost here so I'm enjoying the Halloween kisses/toffees that are available for a short time ! ;-)

marti garaughty - I think we are all on the same page with you! We SHALL prevail! It helps to look on the bright side. May your candy dish be full of Halloween kisses/toffees and satisfactory too! I'm wondering how your cats are doing? Do they sense something is in the air or are they without a care in the world? Oh, it would be fun to peak inside a cat's brain to know all the wisdom they possess! Did you know on October 31, we will have our second full moon for the month?

 The cat pics I post on FB, etc... belong to my sister, friends, etc... they're all fine. I just don't see them very often because of Covid restrictions in my area.

marti garaughty - I understand. I'm glad to hear the cats that belong to your sister and friends are doing fine. These Covid restrictions are hard on everyone. I hope and pray I get to see my son, daughter, and granddaughter again.
