That guy went into an extended period of work some three weeks ago… I’m not sure he’s reappeared just yet… Oh, the work is done, all were happy and there was much rejoicing… Yay!!! Advertisements
… to “The Great American Solar Eclipse”… Talk about your American-style arrogance!!! … like no one has ever seen an eclipse before. Or it only really counts if it happens in our country… Anyway, I’m driving down into the path of totality. Here’s hoping for clear skies, clear roads and a successful photographic adventure… Like the man sang… “Two out of three ain’t bad…” As long as the middle one is the one being sacrificed!!! Pictures to follow some time next week… Image found here.
… I’m just so disgusted with this country right now… And I don’t even do social media, or watch broadcast news… Imagine how enraged I’d be if I paid attention to everybody else screaming right now… I can’t… I’m like the person who’s no good at long division, ’cause I just can’t even… Mostly I’m just sad… Terribly, terribly sad… So I offer up a respite from the madness of this past weekend, and out madness inducing, do-nothing, say the wrong thing at the right time every time President… A sunrise, from half-way around the world… Maybe a bit of meditation on this picture will help with a sense of perspective… I don’t know it will, or not. But anything’s worth a shot, at this point…
You know what season I mean… That time of the year when we live in mortal fear, terrified we’ll end up in the exact wrong place, at precisely the wrong time. That occasion for which people barricade themselves behind closed (and locked) doors.
Of course, the proposed budget still wants the money to build one… You’d think they’d want to distract attention away from the builders of the last rather notorious wall… not focus a spotlight on it, with all the obvious parallels… They built a wall… And now the person they (allegedly) helped put in office wants to build a wall… Christ… Even Reagan looks good, in comparison… One scrambled country, coming right up… Image found here.
