Vast Night Of Fear and Peak Summer Days
Firstly these peak summer days make me reminisce. We’re going to do that and more in The-Vast-Night-Of-Fear-Bob Davis Podcast 937.
Lot On My Mind
Secondly done a lot of political podcasts this month. Time for an easy talker. No prep. Or plan. Just what’s on my mind.
Striking A Perfect Chord
To begin with I watched a movie the other night that really struck the perfect chord for the times we’re living through.
The Vast Of Night
Certainly you should check out The Vast of Night when you get the chance.
In the same vein I noticed a news story the other day that says America is an ‘Anger Incubator’. Even more it reminded me of a recent podcast this month which wondered whether we’re all delirious. You can hear it here.

Is Fear The Root of Our Anger?
In addition rather than anger I submit America is really an incubator of fear right now. Fear is what drives the anger.
Perfect Summer Days Are A Contrast
But on the other hand, when we hit one of these perfect summer days, it gives me some perspective. Even more it strikes me as strange that we’re living in caldron of fear and anger with the wind in the trees and the sound of cicadas.
Sounds, Smells and Sights of Summer
Even the sound of a train rolling through the neighborhood reminds me of times past. Similarly, the feel of burnt grass or warm asphalt under my bare feet
And the smells! Right after a thunderstorm. In the early morning hours.
Do We Control Outcomes?
Finally, I think our fears are related to the certainty we can’t control outcomes right now. Not even a little.
Embrace The Heat
In conclusion it’s a short summer in the upper Midwest. Embrace the heat. Sleep with the windows open. Get out in the vast night and capture a look at the stars. Share it with someone before the heat leaves us.
