Thursday thoughts


Happened to watch on Youtube a CBS doc on Robert Kennedy narrated by Walter Cronkite. He spoke of the people who loved RFK and those who thought him ruthless. If you think of Kennedy and then open your eyes and see Donald Trump. It makes you ill. After RFK assassination, President Johnson called for a panel “to look into the violent fabric of America”.

No word on the kidney transplant front.



for an hour or so today at dialysis, I drew this sketch of Samuel Beckett, my dialysis is four hours long….I go for dialysis four times per week….sketching passes the time…the drawing is not finished, needs some adjustments, catch lights added to the pupils will be especially value adding, still a good effort for 90 minutes of work
