Thinking About Judge Kavanaugh

I normally try to stay away from politics but lately the pain that seems to be tearing this country apart has got to me. This alone and angry lady sitting on a Back Bay stairway expresses my feelings very well.

Bridges

Here in Boston, where the Charles River empties into the harbor, are these two bridges. I liked the juxtaposition of the angular old counterweighted one with the soaring grace of the much newer suspension span. 

Humans build bridges that are both physical and personal. The physical ones are easy to understand, they help us cross things. The personal bridges join humans together. They are hard to construct and, in this fractious day and age, even harder to maintain. 

Would that this were not so.

 

Boston March For Science…2017

One hell of a gathering!

A Political Post…Sorry

Demagoguery enters at the moment when, for want of a common denominator, the principle of equality degenerates into the principle of identity……..Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I am well aware this is primarily a site for posting photographs. Something just cracked inside me this morning. I promise I won’t do this very often.

My Wife’s New Hat

It’s the season for increased political activity among all kinds of people who traditionally were less inclined to make their feelings publicly known. My wife Sarah is one of those folks. She just bought this pink pussy hat. She likes it a lot and I suspect will wear it as much as she can in 2017.

I wonder if there is some kind of men’s head gear that carries the same kind of political statement? If you know of one please let me know.
