A Time of Innocence

Donald Trump has taken more vacation days in his first 8 months of office than Barack Obama took in his 8 years as President. One might almost think there was a concerted effort to keep Mr. Trump away. Things were different when this photo of myself and my dog was taken in 1961. JFK was President, his brother Bobby and Dr. Martin Luther King were still alive. The photo was taken in an age of innocence. Since then, the the world's population has doubled. Too much golf.

 

Our home was in East San Diego County, off Fuerte Drive just East of Mt. Helix in La Mesa, Ca. From our back garden we could see the Mexican border off in the foothills. At night we could see the migrant worker campfires in the distant foothills, and we knew that somehow they'd show up early each morning ready for work at the local farms and golf courses getting them ready for the day's business.

 

On weekends we could drive down across the border into Tijuana for some fun. Tijuana was quite small then with only about 70,000 people. The city was not well run and it often had to borrow the San Diego Fire Department when things got too hot. Today Tijuana is a metropolis of 1.7 million and growing.

 

Since this picture was taken, I have endured nine other US Presidents and have watched my country become a battleground of weaponized selfishness, greed, and self absorbed narcissism. Young people who all want to be over-night super-stars and billionaires. I seem to be the only person on the train or Metro or even on the sidewalk who is not spending 80% of my waking day checking my social status and staring at a device instead of the world right in front of me, or even tossing a slobbery tennis ball to a pet who loves me because I am as foolish as he is.
