The Remains Of The Year

On 4 January 2017 I left Paris on a plane to Seattle.

I had come the other way on 1 November on a flight to Paris.

I was in paris for 63 days.

How joyful.

If you have looked at this blog over the last two months you will have seen a lot of pictures and some prose about this, my most recent Paris sojourn.

I even posted an opinion about the travesty of trump based on the statue of Thomas Jefferson that is on the quai at Pont Solférino.

I voted by mail before I came to Paris.

So I was sure that Hillary would win.

Back in Seattle on 5 January I was in the garage when a summary of it all – the bleakness of our future here in America - presented itself.

As usual, it was an image, demanding that I record it.

So I did.

Here it is:

How sad.

  1. Thanks Noel...I have been writing a piece in my head on my discovery that I don't like my owncountry anymore. In the past 6 months plus I have made some horrible discoveries about what this country is really like.
