That new car smell

Don’t go thinking we’re done.

I understand that it will take a while. I’m affording myself incremental morsels, occasional mouth fulls of hope and optimism. I can smell it and it’s like nothing else ever.

What the wind brings to my nose is rich and ripe. Beyond possibility and potential, there are notes of struggle and hard work in the gusts. The concept of thinking globally and acting locally is about to enjoy a brand new day. Personal responsibility and accountability will be celebrated. Our Man understands in no uncertain terms that we watch with a degree of scrutiny heretofore unseen and never even heard of by any Republican leader.

He’s under the microscope. He will have to talk to us frequently and honestly. Eyes wide open, he walks into the biggest mess an American President has ever seen.

The scent is clean as the wind is fresh.

From whence it blows matters little as there is honesty and community in all it’s notes.

America is now pregnant with possibility for the first time in a decade. Be ready for the role of midwife. Or shitwiper. Each and every, will be asked to participate. Without even saying it, the more who answer, the better our chances.

“I was born by the river in a little tent
And just like the river, I’ve been running ever since
It’s been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come

It’s been too hard living, but I’m afraid to die
I don’t know what’s up there beyond the sky
It’s been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come

I go to the movie, and I go downtown
Somebody keep telling me “Don’t hang around”
It’s been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come

Then I go to my brother and I say, “Brother, help me please”
But he winds up knocking me back down on my knees

There’ve been times that I’ve thought I couldn’t last for long
But now I think I’m able to carry on
It’s been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come” -Sam Cooke

Get ready to be called upon. Your part might be magnanimous or merely peripheral. Prolific or a one time deal. Look for what you can do. Watch what happens and figure out for yourself how best you can be of help.

Without the involvement of her citizenry, America, after reaching the point she has, will fold.

Like a paper tent.

A pale rose without water.

A horse in the desert.

We’re in a ridiculous hole. Government WILL NOT solve our problems. Leadership of the rock solid variety just might. Pay attention. Read and then write if necessary. What has happened is astounding. It is a start. Proof that we’ve begun to understand. A cognizance I hope, pervasive enough, so that we understand we’ll all be required of.

An important window opened upon a still unlikely solution. Maybe luck played a role. I don’t know but I don’t really believe in luck. I can still say this, with any luck, we’re just getting started.

“C’mon people now,
Smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together
Try and love one another right now” -Youngbloods

It’s a runaway train. The passengers will need to do more than rush the goddamn cockpit.

“I go reachin for a cigarette
She says no no baby I aint done yet” -The Gotohells

Drinks for my friends.

  • Fuck you Mike:

    Paying attention.
    Seeing nothing lies and decite from “The one”
    Ron Emanual, partisan democrate asshole
    Jon Corizin, corrupt anti second amendment partisan hack as well who presently presides over the most corrupt state in the union.
    Oh yeah, this Obamma guy is great, just great.
    What a guy.

    That is definitely something new for this country. Having a president with an education is also new. The involvement of the citizenry is the crucial element that will keep us moving forward.

    I love the music you’re playing. I don’t drink. Maybe I’ll take a toke while nobody’s looking.

  • admin:

    The toke is on me. Thanks for reading.
