#WordlessWednesday: The Merry Month of May

It seems there are as many ways of doing “Wordless Wednesday” as there are bloggers.

I define ‘wordless’ as non-verbal, which is why I include music in my #WordlessWednesday post.

This Mozart piano concerto played and conducted by Mitsuko Uchida
makes me proud to belong to the human race.

Her passion is contagious.

Enjoy

San Francisco Pride -Strength Across Generations

We fought for and still fight for a great and noble cause: the liberation
of all people from the tyranny of ignorance.

I made this video in 2015 with images from two years of Pride
celebrations.

This year I made a new version and added photos from 2017.

Fight for what’s right and decent and celebrate your life.
