2. Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited (which meant it was free) to go to Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes' 43rd Annual Celebration. It was great to hear about the work that Planned Parenthood is doing, even while under attack from politicians. The keynote speaker was Leslie Kantor , who gave a great talk about the potential to improve sexual health education in our country. The whole thing made me want to be more actively supportive of Planned Parenthood. You should support them too, if you can. Donate, volunteer, be an activist, or simply be one of the millions of people that utilizes their resources.

I knew there were going to be a lot of people there, and that I wouldn't know anybody, and would have to either stand in a corner by myself or actually go up to strangers and talk to them. Both horrifying prospects. But as I was driving, this, my favorite song by the National (and my theme song for every fall), came on the radio:
Please note, I have idea what is with this video. Just listen to the song.
4. It rained a lot yesterday, but there was this lovely rainbow:
5. I got home last night to find a huge package from Chez. I didn't know what could possibly be so big, until I opened it and found Teddy Gunn, mascot of Rowntree House. He sure was a sight for sore eyes.
|My unparalleled joy.|
