That’s what the feeling is for today. Cautious optimism. Such an improvement over the fear of the past 8 years, with its concomitant need for hyper vigilance.
As the media try their best to shake confidence in President-elect Donald J. Trump and to undermine his future administration, we need to hold on and wait to see how things shake out, once he actually takes office.
At the top of the post is the image of a fortune cookie, with a prediction, received on the day after Trump’s election. The fortune reads
The current year will bring you much happiness.
Well, it already has, with the defeat of Hillary Clinton and a halt to the progressive “fundamental transformation of America.”
This year, the “current year,” of the Chinese calendar is the Year of the Monkey. The new year begins January 28, 2017, about a week after President Trump is inaugurated. Next year is the Year of the Rooster.
In Chinese culture, the rooster is symbolic of “exorcising evil spirits.” Seems about right. Let’s take this as a sign.
May he truly bring us “much happiness.”
He’s off to a good start just by not being Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, in my humble opinion.
