“Golden Passages”

~ November, ’17 ~

It doesn’t have to signify

literal interpretation.

Let’s go beyond

small town streets. . .

This isn’t about inanimate things.

No, not roads, location or

any particular, “certain”

areas of the country.

It is about friends,

neighbors, families,

couples, single ones and

warm, caring connections.

***

It may even be a path

not visible to eyes.

***

Laughing, sharing

and stretching beyond

yards, often into unexpected

senior communities and

sophisticated condos.

Humanity touching by

inviting others into closer

proximity and “within arm’s reach.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Intended to include

and unite so much

more than just

one town.

Please finish

this thought:

“Community

means to

Me. . . ”

Clinton said, “Look, I respect his children. His children are incredibly able and devoted, and I think that says a lot about Donald.” She was lying. I knew it, and you knew it. I suppose it was the best she do. She still thought, as a politician, she had to be polite.

I believe we have all learned otherwise in the year since.

Trump accepted Clinton’s words as “a nice compliment,” and added, “I will say this about Hillary. She doesn’t quit. She doesn’t give up. I respect that. I tell it like it is. She’s a fighter.” Really? Wow. Praise indeed.
