I chose a picture of my grandmother for this collage and submitted it for the Tranquility topic because her expression is so serene. She was 19 when the photo was taken, approximately 1912.
American women did not yet have the right to vote. I don't know how she felt about this, or whether she may have supported the women's suffrage movement. I would love to have known, but she left this world when I was young so I never had a chance ask her.

New Hampshire has a small Atlantic Ocean coast. We have lots of lakes too. But most of the ocean and lake coastlines are lined with private properties that prohibit citizens from accessing these bodies of water, which are owned by the state, not the wealthy homeowners. The supreme court has decided that poor people's homes can be confiscated by local governments for the benefit of corporations. Well I would like to see this same law applied to huge beachfront trophy houses, so that these properties might be returned to the people. Fair is fair.
