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.
Couldn’t resist. I was just going to call this a red, white and blue abstract but the lock and colors were too much of a temptation.
After the events of the last few days I can’t help but thinking that this recent photograph I took at the Frog Pond is a pretty good metaphor for the way this country feels right now.
Walking the streets of a major city as much as I do, one can’t help noticing the increasing fragmentation of our society. Class, race, wealth all contribute to this but the really scary fact is so often it goes virtually unnoticed. Trump is in the White House because those in power didn’t see it or, even worse, were too myopic and self centered to look. Maybe a camera would help.

I find myself lately very discouraged about our country’s current leader’s ability to look at people and world events clearly. Everything he does seems to be filtered through his own highly damaged ego.
This fear brought this older photograph to mind. The picture is of a window in an old abandoned house down the road from where we used to live in Maine. It stands up fine on its own but I now find it symbolic of my current concern for our country.
