The Summer of 2017

Many years ago, I forget how long ago now, I was looking ahead at the future. I was going along, one year at a time, just looking for anything I thought might be a significant event or turning point. I saw lots of things, but the one thing that stood out in my mind was that when I got to 2017, the mood of the entire U.S. was at a fever-pitch. In the summer of 2017 there was a huge mob of people that descended on Washington DC and someone – I thought someone ‘presidential’ – was run out of town on a rail after being practically tarred and feathered!

As last year’s election drew near and everyone was saying that Hillary Clinton was going to be president, I thought, “Uh-oh! Hillary might get run out of town!”

When Donald Trump was elected, I thought, “Uh-oh! The Donald might get run out of town!”

When I learned that Obama was still in Washington, that he was organizing protests against Trump and using taxpayer money to bail out protesters who were arrested, I thought “Oh my! Obama might be the one who gets run out of town! Those activities are seditious, illegal, and probably treasonous.” 

So now I’m watching to see what happens. It’s possible we’ve taken a different timeline, but certainly the mood of the country is pretty feverish…guess I’ll just have to watch what’s unfolding. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about clairvoyance, it’s patience. You ‘see,’ and then you wait and watch, remaining ready for anything and creating whatever good you can along the way.
