December 4 Day 636: The Wisdom of Presidents

Today in the White House Visitor’s Center, I spied these words from Chester A. Arthur. Little did he know that these words would be relevant to every person living through the 2020-2021 Corona Virus Lockdown.

I was grateful for the chance to explore my country’s capital on a beautiful fall Saturday before flying home to Washington state. Led by the intrepid Kate Kozak, president of AMATYC and accompanied by Laura Watkins, president-elect of AMATYC, we walked out the door of our hotel on a journey of 18,000 steps (AKA 7.5 miles).

Thanks to Kate and Laura for dragging me along on their adventure. I’m so glad we spent the day together.
