The women of our affinity group spent the weekend of February 22nd and 23rd planning for the March 8th DC action. Some of us also planned to take part in a baring witness event the morning of February 23 near Warren Wilson College in Black Mountain.

When we arrived, it was a beautiful but cold morning with light snow. Oddly, no one else came. We had a digital camera and decided to bare witness anyway, which prompted an interesting discussion with a local farmer after the event. We were a bit limited in the shapes we could make, so we opted for the circle, which represents our connections to all life, and the yoni, which speaks to our power and responsibility as women to protect life. So while it isn't the most well planned event, it was beautiful nonetheless.
