I stalked Day of Action on Twitter yesterday because I had to work and went straight to Foley Square afterward. I had no idea what to expect and was slightly nervous. Excitement overruled. A lot of people were there- a spectacular sight. The atmosphere was amazing-the chanting, the music, the speeches, the signs! I didn't have my camera but thankfully, phones come with cameras now.
Police were everywhere. They set up an unnecessary amount of barricades for a peaceful protest. At least they kept to themselves.
I grossly underestimated how cold it was. My feet were nearly frozen by the time I headed home but I had a great time.
Auden is a dark fantasy author. As a kid, she created her own books by folding several construction papers in half and stapling them down the middle, adding her own illustrations. No matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t get away from writing. Darkness and dark thing have always fascinated her.
