Americans and their garden signage are a curious thing..
You walk past these talking houses and you see placards telling you “Black lives matter” , ” Gay rights ” , ” Trans rights”
“Equality for women” …” I’m with jesus ”
and , for the goths ” I worship the devil ” ( this one is helpful as you know off the (flying) bat ..That lot are gonna be possibly over weight and certainly somewhat braindead )…. You get Xmas decor , Halloween decor , “Welcome to spring ” and ” I love Autumn ” bows.
You get the persons voting preference and pop culture choices as garage stickers …Their gate fittings,at times, tell you about their pets and they leave books to browse, borrow or keep ..They even leave take away philosophy quotes and homemade poems
In short the American garden is a social media post before social media was invented
So, who would have thought it, America a land that was once so scared of the feminine male it invented the Marlboro Man and John Wayne – though after much homo appropriation those two now seem as camp as Richard Simmons sock collection – has now, at last,at last, at last made gay marriage legal..Ireland lead the way and America followed. Still the USA are the first super power to make such a move and that is no small thing, it really is a historic moment and America should be VERY proud of itself….
It seems as England moves backward, America keeps its “New World” promise and moves the everyday forward – Take that Vladimir Putin, you cretin!
Celebrate the change, enjoy the moment – though please, don’t say “I’m grateful” say “About time”
The light is love, the light is hope, the dark forces may try to stop it BUT they can’t, they merely cause a delay.
