Politics Stress Relief

As I write, the first Presidential debate, between presumptive candidates Joseph Biden and Donald Trump, is underway. For now, my intention is not to watch. Later, I will start with clips and possibly peek at a recorded version through which I can fast-forward and pause. The live event promises to be pure poison.

Or stated differently: Various manifestations of elder abuse. Seriously? You ask. Yes, Biden for his sheer presence and demand to stand and be mentally present for 90 minutes or so. Trump, for the abrasive handling by the hostile CNN moderators.

To lighten the mood of the evening and the country’s collective consciousness, I present a soothing mural spotted in my San Diego neighborhood of University Heights. I used Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra to capture the Featured Image on June 23, 2024. Vitals: f/1.7, ISO 12, 1/500 sec, 23mm (film equivalent); 5:05 p.m. PDT.
