In good old USA, the richest country on earth, there is terrible inequality. To me this means that we are approaching a time when this disparity of wealth will become a dangerous problem. I’m not going to go on with this political rant any longer. Suffice it to say this photograph made me think of it.
I’m hoping this image helps to underline my point.
These two pumpkins were sitting in a Beacon Hill entryway as I clumped down to Charles Street to buy our Sunday Papers. I initially thought I would title this image “Mother and Child” or “Still life with Pumpkins”. Those titles probably would have worked OK but I think the current one works better.
Society is always at a time when the young start replacing the old in leadership positions. That transition is particularly relevant in today’s fractious political climate. I fervently hope that those who will lead this nation in the years to come take their increasing responsibility VERY seriously.
And you thought this post was only about a photograph of pumpkins!
It may be because it’s raining right now or I just watched a powerful video on the events of 9/11 that I’m posting this photo. Somehow this drug addict seems emblematic of the mental state of our President. Scrounging around for the next media high to fuel his insatiable ego, regardless of the suffering involved.
This poor guy and Donald Trump desperately need help. I pray they get it.
