Out & About with Brief #RandomThoughts




I decided to "break the ice" for the year as I began the year featuring the Retrospective on my Life I produced in close collaboration with StoryCorp.    It was important as this week will be 90 days since My Aunt Mahroo Left Us.

As I have hit the ground running for the year, I decided to share this Visual Essay I produced of my Year-End Travels in 2019 --and how I was in awe as to what I saw both in National Harbor and in Washington.    Please enjoy these scenes as I look forward to being supportive of the Daily Outsider and the challenging times we're faced with.
