Perspective. It helps me cope w/ my Trump angst & binoculars.
I thought of this while helping one of the kids w/ HIS bins. He’s got the hold-the-barrels-steady part.
The Eagle Optics Kingbirds & National Geographic Kids Bird Guide are great, btw;
which reminds me that solid ideas & resources help w/ coping too.
Then I had him read signs @ various distances
starting w/ the closest & moving farther away. Perspective.
Another source of perspective? Late night tv, or in my case, late night tv youTubes:
A signal that Great Ape rough & tumble play is such
& not prelude to “I’m gonna rip your throat out” is panting,
an early form of laughter.
I wish the PFN could emit something like these deep,jocular bursts of air.
A laugher recognizes life’s absurdities & copes,
demonstrating an awareness of common ground w/ the rest of humanity.
But it’s impossible to laugh if you’re narcissistic
& dishonest w/ yourself.
Humor: I love to laugh; it comes easy. Not so our PFN (president for now). A 420 character, 9-liner
that I have unease on this glorious green day
full of birdsong and kid-laughter;
I’ve been hearing the Black billed Cuckoo sing all night now that it’s breeding season.
In fact, I feel like a Black billed Cuckoo who’s eaten too many spiny caterpillars
& the spines have stuck in my stomach lining.
She periodically sheds such to remove the spines;
perhaps our PFN* will be shed & with him my unease.
*PFN=President for Now

Another Inquiry (not one Mr. Mueller need attend to though): Black-billed Cuckoos keep the destructive writhing Tent Caterpillars in check; how about our writhing PFN*? (a 420 character 9-liner) (For more info on Mr. Mueller and his task see below.)
