Puerto Rico, trapped in time

HOPEFULLY!! … “These youth do not know of windfalls; they are children of all the crises: economic, climatic—hurricanes, droughts, earthquakes—, politics—with the colony on their backs and protest always alive, and now they are surviving a pandemic. They have nothing to lose. They can risk it all. Hopefully they will. Hopefully we will.”

Repeating Islands

On April 9, 2021, Spanish newspaper El País published a piece by Ana Teresa Toro: “Puerto Rico, atrapado en el tiempo.” As the editors explain, “With a personal look at the past and another at the future, Puerto Rican journalist and writer Ana Teresa Toro lists some of the clues to [understanding] a territory that is part of, but not an integral part of the United States. An anachronistic present.”

To illustrate her points about the colonial condition, the present state of the island (no pun intended), and its trajectory into the future Toro also speaks about the work of different Puerto Rican figures such as writer Cezanne Cardona (author of Levittown mon amour); artist and executive director of Taller Salud, Tania Rosario; and economist and urban planner Deepak Lamba-Nieves. [The article includes fascinating photos by Luis R. Vidal.] Here are excerpts:

White people in this country are afaid and IGNORANT!! … it doesn’t justify what some of them are doing!! … “So, what is the Great Replacement Theory? It’s a fear by white people that in the future, they will no longer be the dominant race in this nation. Do you know who else had that fear? Adolph Hitler.”



Tucker Carlson is a white supremacist and with every new show, it’s less subtle.

Tucker has spoken in the past about the Great Replacement Theory and I covered it in this blog in 2019. Jesus, Tucker’s been on this racist shit for a while.

So, what is the Great Replacement Theory? It’s a fear by white people that in the future, they will no longer be the dominant race in this nation. Do you know who else had that fear? Adolph Hitler.

Tucker says white supremacy doesn’t exist and every night on his show, he proves otherwise. He is a white supremacist and he has a prime-time slot on the number-one rated (HA) news show in the country. As Tucker argues white supremacy doesn’t exist, former Grand Wizard David Duke tells his followers to watch Tucker because he’s talking to them. It’s all winks and nudges, but Tucker’s racism…

Walking. You Would Never Break the Chain.

I knew it was FleetMac!! … “…I can still hear you saying / You would never break the chain… ” DKan Photos, Here @ Birds and here @ Daybreak..

Live & Learn

Morning Walk. 348 consecutive days. Like in a row. 

This morning, 6:00 a.m. Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, CT.

I’m at the end of the Pier.

I wait. Sunrise @ 6:11 a.m.

And wouldn’t you know it, my playlist flips to The Chain, by Fleetwood Mac.

…Listen to the wind blow / Watch the sun rise…

I reach for the iPhone and press repeat.  And turn the Volume up.

And, I stand, and wait.

Because they don’t disappoint. My Canada Geese.

They’re out in the distance.

I turn the volume down, their call, barely audible over Stevie Nicks.

They turn slightly left, heading my way.

I hoist the camera up.  Steady DK, Steady. Breathe.

Here they come.  Come on Team, keep coming. Stay your course.

They’re in my viewfinder.  Bearing down straight at me. Now DK. Now!

I put camera down to watch.

Entire flock honking, wings beating.
