May 30 Colors and Letters: ORANGE RED

Self is joining the May Colors and Letters Challenge. More about it here.

The color for May 30 is Orange Red.

Self decided to take pictures from her front porch today. Well, the geraniums in the first picture look more pink, come to think of it. Oh well, they’re pretty, she’ll just leave them in.

More About Daddy, the Trump Supporter

Hugely enjoying Ayad Akhtar, let her tell ya. Self, too, is trying to understand the mystique of The Former Guy.

Here, Akhtar continues to try to de-construct his father’s support for DJT:

I think Father was looking for an image of just how much more his American self could contain than the Pakistani one he’d left behind. I think he wanted to know what the limits were. In America, you could have anything, right? Even the presidency? If an idiot like Trump could get hold of it, couldn’t you? Even if you didn’t want it? After all, the idiot apparently didn’t want it, either. He just wanted to know he could have it. Or maybe the emphasis there needs to shift: he wanted to know he could have it.
