Three wishes

Some sparrows in a field gone to brush.  Any sparrow will do.

A wren nest-building and singing.

A quiet moment sharing an old abandoned stonewall with a chipmunk.

Thank you, Lord.

Who would have believed it?

Believe what?  That it would be the  Republican party who put a Russian mole in the White House._____________________________________________________________________________________

The Trump-Comey dinner

"It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his job depends on not understanding it."

----- Quotation from Upton Sinclair

Welcome to Trump World

The following was written in 1990 by Michael Thomas for an essay titled "The Money Game."

In such conditions time itself breaks up into discrete parts.  An enterprise that may have sunk its roots in commerce and community over a century can be disassembled by a takeover artist in a matter of  weeks.  Continuum means nothing.  Relationships mean nothing.  The modern financier lives and dies by  the  transaction.  Each day is wholly  new, the wheel subject to  endless reinvention.  There is no need for coherence because there is no advantage for coherence  Action is all , , , Critical judgment is neutered by celebrity, censure collapses in the face of  success."

Prophetic, wasn't it?
