Exactly five months ago…


Took these photos on August 7, 2020.

Exactly five months ago I was in the backyard “capturing” images of butterflies. Yesterday, I sat in disbelief watching pro-Trump rioters storm the U.S. Capitol Building on live television. In the end democracy survived despite the damage and four deaths. Joe Biden will be president on January 20 and Kamala Harris will be vice-president. And, by that time, Democrats will take control of the U.S. Senate. But all the butterflies in the world won’t rid Congress of elected representatives who espouse hatred with some ascribing to wild conspiracy theories fit for the minds of the mentally unsound and domestic terrorists.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
