Freedom Friday: The Fall Back Edition

Hello My People!

This Sunday, daylight savings time ends so it is time to fall back.  Falling back can be a good thing.  It can be a time of reflection, listening to your spirit and getting focused for the new year.  With less than 2 months away from the new year, we can get started on doing better, making right or beginning again.  Each day, we are granted new mercies so we should seize each day as a blessing to try again. 

I know at times it is challenging with our responsibilities and priorities–the jobs, kids, families, bills, etc.  However, if we fall back, get quiet and listen, the next steps will be revealed.   We also sometimes have to fall back by stop worrying, complaining, fretting, and getting frustrated.  By falling back, we can begin to move forward.  

Enjoy the weekend!  Check out some events below.


Founded in 2008, FotoWeek DC has evolved from a city-centric photography festival to a multi-season tribute to photography in all its forms.

FotoWeek DC celebrates the transformative power of photography through the exhibition of inspiring and provocative images, diverse programming, and collaboration with the local and international community.

Whether through photojournalism, fine art photography, or the work of emerging artists, FotoWeek DC provides a dynamic, evocative, engaging experience for  photographers, cultural institutions, galleries, curators, schools, area residents and tens of thousands of visitors to the Nation’s Capital.
