This blog is an eclectic collection of interesting things I've seen and heard on Tumblr, the rest of the web, and beyond. Its name is taken from this quote by Dinah Craik:

"Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away."

Civil Rights March on Washington, D.C. 
In August 1963, more than 200,000 Americans celebrated the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation by joining the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Key civil rights figures led the march, including A. Philip Randolph, Roy Wilkins, Bayard Rustin, and Whitney Young. But the most memorable moment came when Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
This photo is a wide-angle view of marchers along the mall, showing the Reflecting Pool and the Washington Monument.  August 28, 1963.
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial opened this week in D.C.  His memorial is the first on the National Mall to be dedicated to an individual other than a U.S. president.
