Notations On Our World (Weekly Edition): An #OutsiderWall On the Week That Was


Our team was in the community this week as we had the pleasure to be witness to the vibrancy of the community as a major landmark in South Orange County was bustling.   We decided to headline our weekly "Outsider Wall" with images we captured during our week.

It has been quite a week in our World as we were witness to devastating floods in Europe and as COVID continues to rear its' ugly head.    We also continue to assess the ongoing challenges with China, the US Politics scene and the on-going aftermath of the January 6 insurrection.  

We present our weekly "Outsider Wall" on the week that was courtesy the team at the Washington Examiner, The Economist of London, The Financial Times of London, The Visual Capitalist, Haaretz and Defense One.

We look forward to the continued privilege to serve:
