Past Lives

If anyone asked me if I believe in reincarnation I would say no. But, I am always open to possibilities- sort of. People who like reincarnation seem to, in another existence,¬†have been a prince or princess or a wealthy mogul of some kind. I haven’t heard much about serfs, chimney sweeps, dishwashers, beggars or mothers of 17.

However, in looking up a fact or two, I learned that Adolf Hitler died in 1945. Guess who was born in 1946? That narcissist of 2016, The Donald Trump.

This is either too awful to be possible or it is a bad, bad dream.

I think it was President Carter who said, people get the government they deserve. I am certain that no one I know deserves Trump. I think he needs to have a name such as he throws at those he dislikes – maybe a contest. Trickster comes to my mind.

I recently read a quote  from NEVER LET ME GO by Kazuo Ishiguro. I have not read anything by this writer but the following quote made me want to find the book

“There was another life that I might have had- but I am having this one.”
