A Note About the “special Black History” notes March 2, 2023

Many blessings to all, and especially to those observing Lent, Great Lent, and/or the Baháʼí 19-Day Fast during this “Season for Non-violence” and all other seasons!  Much love to those who are reading (and/or learning to read) on Read Across America Day! 

“In order to create a peaceful world, we must learn to practice nonviolence with one another in our day-to-day interactions.”

“Day 32 ~ March 2nd ~ Patience”

– quoted from “Themes for Week 5” of the “Season for Non-violence,” provided by the Mahatma Gandhi Canadian Foundation for World Peace 

So, “Black History Month” is over; but Black history is still being made – and I mean that literally and literarily. I’m not sure how or why I underestimated how much time and energy would go into researching, writing, formatting, and posting the “special Black History notes” that I decided to post this year; but, I did. Given my miscalculation – and everything else that I’m doing and that is going on around me – I only managed to post 13 notes (covering February 1st – 12th, plus February 14th) before the arbitrary deadline of February 28th. So, almost exactly half the month.

But, I have notes and plans for the rest – and I plan to finish and post the rest.

It’s hard for me to tell, just by looking at the analytics, if anyone is reading these posts in real time. It is also hard to tell if anyone is interested and/or invested in reading more and knowing more (to paraphrase a certain children’s book author, who was born today in 1904). However, I am interested and invested. Also, based on random comments, it seems like a lot of people are actually reading these posts “out of time.” – which makes the whole end of the month thing even more arbitrary.

So…. in keeping with the theme of today, I would appreciate your patience (and support) as I sprinkle in the remaining special Black History notes.

### “Said ‘woman take it slow, and it’ll work itself out fine’ / All we need is just a little patience / Said ‘sugar make it slow and we’ll come together fine’ / All we need is just a little patience (Patience) / Mm, yeah” ~GNR ###

Hello Myra – I appreciate the Black History notes very much and deeply respect the time, effort, and love it takes to researching and posting them. I read them slowly since I need to put everything else off my desk in order to fully appreciate them and the experiencing of reading and learning. Thank you!

Hello! You are more than welcome. Thank you so much for the comment – and for the time and attention you put into reading the notes. Of course, I always appreciate how present you are in everything you do. There’s another one coming soon. Peace to you and yours, Myra
