Sucking everything up in its wake.

November 6, 2012


You can see the two men dragging themselves toward the finish line. Their tongues hanging out. When you hear about the schedule they keep its a wonder someone doesn’t die. I can’t imagine the stress. Always smiling. Being upbeat. My mother was upbeat. When she wasn’t depressed. These are symptoms of bi-polarism not the mentally healthy. But the race for the Presidency fits the frantic pace of modern life. People thought the 50s were the rat race. ‘This is ten times worse’, (to quote Dylan). Contemporary life is like a tornado. Sucking everything up in its wake.
