ROSES AND A BEE – TEXTURES

TUESDAYS OF TEXTURE | WEEK 46 OF 2016


Tuesday was election day. I’m sure pretty much everyone everywhere knows that. We voted. Then, I took pictures. Not a lot of pictures. A few around town. It shows no election-related activity. None, at all. Which was worrying at the time, and more understandable now. The lack of enthusiasm was unusual, something I hadn’t previously experienced.

The texture is the velvet softness of roses, the sharpness of thorns … and a bee.

These are probably the last roses of 2016 … and likely, the final bee. I was glad to see a bee. There have not been nearly enough of them recently.


I hear that there are anti-Trump protests all over the country in the big cities. Well, gee, talk about a dollar short and a day late. How many of these marchers went and voted, when it mattered? Do they now think that these protests are going to make him quit? Seriously? All it’s going to do it piss him off.

I am still seeking intelligent life on Earth, but I’m beginning to seriously wonder if I’ll ever find it.

  1. Focus on bees. It is a better use for your energies and it is an area where one can possibly make a difference. Cure the small ills in the world around you and hope there is a trickle-outward global effect. I think that is the best we can hope to accomplish in our lives anyway.
