Conversation over coffee

He stands a strapping 6’5”. Burly. He clearly manifests his Viking ancestry. His large hands are calloused from a lifetime of building houses and furniture and boats. He carries the scars of his three tours in Viet Nam.

As he watches the news he tells me, “Y'know, I haven’t always liked the outcome of presidential elections. Some presidents I liked and admired. Others I’ve disliked, sometimes they made me angry.” I nod in agreement. Then he says, “But this is the first time I’ve actually been afraid of the new guy.” He looks down and shakes his head, and I notice that the hand wrapped around his coffee mug is shaking.

Once more reality is driven home. Hard.
