As we move to authoritarian government based on white nationalism, I'm keeping an object each day and some brief notes about my life and what is going on in our politics.
Here is a picture of my gallery of things and also here are my notes.
When we are each called to account and when historical and creative records are wanted to record what took place, I will offer these things and these notes.
