But Not This Year

My favorite time of year is again upon us. 
A time of renewal and new beginnings,
But not this year. 

All is different
Because hope is now riding in the back seat.
The new driver is Fear
Assisted by Lies, Corruption, and Arrogance.

It is dark, indeed, even as the dawn comes.
The once bright world has taken on a different hue
Since Evil and his cronies
Started lurking the West Wing of the White House, saying "You're fired!" 
To Truth and Compassion.

Will Spring return in all its glory
Once this growing black cloud, filled with Hate and Greed,
Is conquered by Truth, Liberty, and Justice?

A crisis, terrifying to watch, is approaching.
I can feel it, and it frightens me...
So, this different, unfamiliar spring, the likes of which I have never known,
Is making its move into reality.

A time of renewal and new beginnings,
But not this year.

We Shall Overcome!

Here we are in downtown Santa Rosa, all 5000 of us!

Rain decided to come to the party, but our spirits could not be dampened.

Downtown Santa Rosa

What a great day. I'll never forget it!
We shall overcome.

Brunch at Tiffany's

Elegant! It's a birthday brunch for Bev, and Tiffany might as well have catered this affair. 

Even the birthday cake screamed Tiffany.

So, of course, we all got into the act.
