Snarled world needs a lock picker. Not a man who looks like he’s smashed the caps-lock key. A 420 character 9-liner

(Kit prepared by a 6-year old, “just in case.”) Now to the 420-9-liner:

 

Tweets that look like he’s smashed the caps-lock key?

Doing harm (again) to the next generation?

Hunched over his hand-held device, foaming at the mouth.

(Hmm. Or was that Alec Baldwin?)

Action needed, people, to loose these surly bonds.

Like Francis (from Assisi?) said:

Do the necessary, then the possible, then we’re geared for the impossible.

Or the very difficult.

This needs a lock-picking kit mind-set not tweets

How to keep learning? How to counter Trump and Fox News. A 420 character 9 liner on Times Square bees and staying in the know.

 

 

 

I approximate to stay on the edge of my learning.

I read, listen, & make connections.

Often I do this frenetically so as not to fall prey to conspiracy-theorist,

Fox News predator types.

I like the mindset of that beekeeper

watching the capture of a huge bee swarm in Times Square.

He estimated the swarm size to be 20,000.

Are you sure? No, he says, but, to be sure all you need to do is

count the legs & divide by 6.”

Keeping track is vital. Our 6-year old notebook-keeping-Bird-watcher is learning this. A 420 character 9-liner.

Keeping track makes the thing matter,

leading to a wide-awake life.

The 2 generations down from me value this Earth

in a way I didn’t as a kid.

Value it in that they learn it & figure out how to care for it.

My grandkids’ parents know they have to be positive & constructive

to ward off intentional trumpian chaos w/ facts not fantasy.

Lots of science, history, nature, marches, writing, letter-writing, & talk.

Keeping.
