D20 8312 Shelly wades
Happy Thanksgiving. It’s a beautiful day.

Here is Shelly wading in a lake in North Carolina on a chilly day. The water was still warm, though, so she said it wasn’t really a problem. Another use of “challenging light.” Direct sunlight, but this was later in the day when there was some direction to the light which allowed me to pose Shelly to take advantage of sunlight to show off her lovely body in this great setting.

It’s been a good quiet Thanksgiving at our house. Had our dinner at a restaurant, which was excellent. Just got back from seeing the movie “Bobbie” which brought back a bunch of memories. 1968 was quite a year. I “came clean for Gene” McCarthy…but by the time Bobbie was assassinated in June it had become clear that he was on his way to winning the Democratic nomination and most likely the presidency. Which leads to the first question: How would our world be different if Robert Kennedy had become president in 1969 instead of Nixon? It’s almost impossible to imagine at this point. We lost a lot that year.

And the second question: Where are the leaders like Bobbie today? There’s no one on the political scene who I can even imagine holding Bobbie’s coat, let alone carrying his vision forward. We need leadership. We need someone with a vision that goes beyond just getting elected. It sure would be nice to be able to get excited about a leader again. And the country would be so much better off if we had real leaders.

Ok…enough of that…go see the movie. It’s excellent. If you are much younger than me, you may not know the Bobbie Kennedy story. It’s one worth knowing. The movie isn’t really about Bobbie, but rather about the times and the people whose lives he touched and who were touched by his assassination. The actors are excellent. The script is very well written. It’s a good one.
