Working to finish up a journal I don’t like.
Not because of the paper — Strathmore paper is good paper.
The journal is not falling apart (I’ve stuck with THOSE.)
No, this is because the Strathmore Journal has a strange feeling cover,
and the pages don’t lay flat so I am always fighting them.
This was an early journal, so I didn’t know what I liked.
I gave all the others away, BUT I had some nice images in this one
and a couple of memories, Nicks in McMinnville and the Catholic Church and
when Mitchell split his thumb on the saw. I just could not toss it.
Then there is this, below. Seriously, I’ve had nightmares.
I didn’t have them with Bush, and I didn’t like him… but he was not Trump.
I didn’t have them with 911… I sobbed at the deaths, but was not afraid for my own life
despite what the media was trying to do to us daily.
Trump and his large band of inciting-to-riot cohorts are scaring the shit out of me.
