There's no knead for dough.
We stir it up. We go high.
Together we rise.

A photo essay by me of the Women's Walk
"In Portland, (Maine) massive protest
teems with more than 10,000"
Our Portland, Maine
huge inaugural protest January 21, 2017
was, according to Portland (Maine) Police,
"of historic proportions,"
like so many around
the world.
