Let's Take a (Virtual, Twitter Guided) Walk #45 went to the voting booth

What else could we do with LTAW#45 but go to the voting booth? And so we did. We took a virtual guided Walk. Walking separately but sharing a journey #WalkingTogetherApart #Worldwide. Departing from my home in the Lower East Side, I walked to 100 Hester Street, NYC. Where did your walk end? 
Those of you who lived in a part of the world that did not vote joined us to show support in this critical moment. 
We walked for Change to borrow from #44, President Barrack Obama.
By the way, Let's Take a Walk #30 took us to the voting booth to re-elect President Obama. The video featured on LTAW #33 blog post shows a moment as we, a group of volunteers, cleaned up Sandy's devastation on Staten Island.

From near or far, thank you for sharing this journey with me.
Who did you think of?
What was your wish?
What song did you sing? 

Songs I had in my mind and hummed as I walked.
Changes David Bowie 
A Change is Gona to Come, Aretha Franklin,
Change Christina Aguilera

Note that this walk was, for me, chaotic as I promised to guide you Live on Instagram and via Twitter, and I did so without my Tweet Master. Having to go back and forth from Instagram to Twitter, leaving you with pauses and quiet times, I wonder how it worked for you?
To share your impressions or images of the walk, or to be notified on future projects, please do so via mariechrisitne@mindspring.com.
Wishing you and your loved one's health, love, and wonderful discoveries.
