Focus-Be steady-Pay attention:
A mantra that helps me keep track of Trump, not go nuts,
& still be able to look for solutions,
to say “maybe if I or we do,say,write,call,act; then…”
it’s like how I teach kids to hold their bins: Start w/ what’s closest
& move further away.
Hold steady, ease the focus wheel this way & that.
Expect that you will see & hear something you’ve missed.
Be wide awake to possibility. Focus
I’m teaching the kids to bird, mayhap igniting an interest (a passion) for the environment that will help them be part of the changes that need doing. (A 420 character nine liner.)
Learning: The Cabinet hearings taught me what we’re up against;
I will use what I’ve learned to help short-circuit their moves.
They represent the exact opposite of what would be
the best leader for each cabinet spot.
Recently I searched for the Rough-legged Hawk &,
while I didn’t find her,
I learned the lay of the nooks & fields over which she perched, swooped, & hunted.
I’ll know where to look next time.
by a crowd of other White Men,
Mr Trump nixed international NCO’s health care to women
& then Mr Pence spoke to the Pro-Life Marchers to reaffirm his support for fetuses;
me too, BTW,
but (and it’s a big but) for decades this rabid support of the unborn
is not linked w/ equally rabid support for kid once born.
Trump’s anti-refugee order reminds me again that the Aylan Kurdis will not be safely
Trump has a checkered histotry on abortion. His words demonstrate that he saw the opportunity for votes and so became a pro-lifer late in the game (really, Patty, this is so not a game.) But he tweeted the Pro-Life marchers in lieu of showing up. Perhaps the man does have a sense of shame.
Note to Trump publicists, surely even you can see the problem with the optics in the signing ceremony? And the timing? Holocaust Rememberance Day?
