Nine days ahead of the election I started counting down. Counted down to zero (Election Day). Then I started counting again, this time up, up to nine. Here is the result: one person’s shifting, multidimensional, confusing, elated, terrifying, mutating perspective on what appeared to go down in America during the historic Presidential (s)election Process, 2016. Throughout, I was struck by the contrast between two powerful themes occurring simultaneously: Corruption (in the U.S. Government) and Conscience (at Standing Rock).
I started and stopped at day nine, but of course the 2016 circus doesn’t start or stop. I arbitrarily plucked those “19 days” out of the continuum, although in the final post of this seriesI did mine the remarkable symbolic meaning of the number “19” inside the engorging morass.
