I saw a Gallup poll today that showed that Republicans are more Popular than Democrats this year in America.

I had a lot of thoughts on this. 

Maybe you have some too.

They are complicated thoughts, and dark. And they balled up in my fist. I looked down. And I thought "Open your fist."

I opened my fist and found I only had a hand and a moth flew out of it and went to a light and circled it forever.

I have so many beautiful speeches.

I don't mean to brag, but I am wonderful.

But I would never say that. Or write it down.

Of the 64 pictures I made this evening these are the ones I wanted to show you.


  1. You seem to be having way too much fun!

  2. Popularity of dems and reps...I have a push-pull relationship with the political situation. I want to care, I want to help, but I have no idea what to do. Mostly I'm glad I've made it to my 80s and maybe I'll be gone before things get too much more horrible. [There's always a chance, I guess, but women in my family have a disconcerting way of making it to their mid-90s.]


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
