#20 in the “Divine Feminine” series.  In October and November we’ll be featuring quotes about, for and by women.  Inspired by the Awakin.org call with Elle Lunaauthor The Crossroads of Should and Must. See also Aphrodite Emerges on Medium.com and “#the100dayproject” on Instagram.   This was written by Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis in 1939 when she was 10-years old and her name was Jaqueline Lee Bouvier.

This Gem is dedicated in loving memory today to President John F. Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963) and to his widow, Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis with great respect and sorrow.  I was only 3-years old but I remember this day.   I remember being in the middle of the living room and many adults were standing around the television and crying. I have vivid memories of seeing pant legs and skirts from knee-height, milling around, holding each other for support.  To see so many adults crying was a terrible shock.  It wasn’t until I was older that I truly understood how much we lost that day, “…the end of Camelot.”

Photo “Solvitur ambulando – It is solved by walking” by Niki Flow. Inspired by Nicole Huguenin, Chief Dream Architect, Wild Dream Walks

#18* in the “Divine Feminine” series.  In October and November we’ll be featuring quotes about, for and by women.  Inspired by the Awakin.org call with Elle Lunaauthor The Crossroads of Should and Must. See also Aphrodite Emerges on Medium.com and “#the100dayproject” on Instagram. Nicole Huguenin is not only one of our Under1000Skies photo contributors, she is one of our city artist-pack distribution volunteers.  The first time I read “solvitur ambulando” was during our shared KindSpring.org challenge, “The 1st Annual KindSpring Eowyn Challenge” in September 2015.  The origin of the saying is lost in time, but if I had to guess, I would say it was first said by a Roman mother to her child who was too long indoors (or perhaps to all her family members).  “Solvitur ambulando!” (It solved her problem, too.)
