In Celebration of the “New Wave”

A few months ago I called it a multi-colorful, multi-cultural wave. Today, in a series of provocative and powerful photos, Vanity Fair called this group of women the New Wave.

We did not come to play”

In my opinion, there’s no better way to start 2019 other than a group of diverse women willing to disrupt the old system of order.

As I was writing this, I happened upon an image of Mike Pence swearing in the first openly bi-sexual person in U.S Congress, Kyrsten Sinema! Karma?

How are you feeling about it all?

    It’s such a beautiful thing to see so many new faces, female faces, and especially so many women of color. I’m thrilled and hopeful and can’t stop crying when I look at the photos.

    Loving it. Especially when they try to cut down Ocasio-Ortiz for dancing and she just takes the high road and shuts them down in the best possible way 😎. Can’t wait to see what these people do to change our country for the better.
