The signs are dark indeed

The signs are dark indeed
Dear friends, feel free to interpret this and my previous images as a comment on the dark turn the world has taken on November 8. While reality will inevitably erase trumpery in the long run, the damage to our already shaky ecosystem could make life as we know it unsustainable. It is not us but our children and grandchildren who will face the consequences, and it is for them I grieve. What little I can do myself to mitigate the damage and to shine a light, I will do. In dark times, art and poetry can be intensely meaningful. So can kindness.
Be well, everyone.

I advise anti-Trump Americans to look back at the 50s and 60s and look at how people overcame the serious social problems of those days. Just sayin.

This is a beautiful, well-composed shot. Trump will never get your eyes!!

Thank you, John. I hear and appreciate what you are saying. I've actually been thinking a lot about my parents and grandparent who survived WWII and WWI, living in the relative safety of the island Switzerland yet deeply affected by the war, just as I am living on the island California and more specifically the Bay Area, among the hard core resistance.

In the 50's people worried -- with justification -- that a nuclear war was going to wipe out life on earth as we know it. Now we face climate change which has already spurred a refuge crisis, and as we know will get much worse and likely faster under the regime that is about to assume power. Having said that ... predictions of the future are notoriously iffy, and who knows -- a giant asteroid might hit the earth a year from now and wipe out everyone's problems instantly!
Now there's a cheerful thought ...

That should have read "Trump will **never** get your eyes". Sorry.

I have to admit that I'm at an age where I'm not taking a long-range view. Unless I look backwards of course. I posted a comment elsewhere about how people reacted differently to Nixon's win in 1968, and was indignantly told by another commenter that no one could know how people reacted 50 years ago.
