The above quote is from Hamilton – King George singing about his relationship with the Colonies. (It’s such a Southern Italian sentiment.)
It also seems pertinent today with our own ‘mad king’ making threats – threats that he thinks sound normal.

He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is.
And the above pic is of North Park Lake. Morning light is amazing. When I came back around, an hour or so later, the contrast, the details were all bleached out by the late morning sun.
