Happiness and Politics

Happiness is fleeting, yet so sweet. My parents on their wedding day circa ’53, outside Muv’s home, in Saint Francis Wood, San Fran.

Muv recalled Kennedy in ‘that way’ only once or twice – but that was her way – she wasn’t all that removed from Kennedy’s kind of world.

When she married, they weren’t even 30 when he was elected, their lives packed with promise, feeling rich; full of kids and future.

The reality is always different, but really, there are moments of happiness, fleeting, and so sweet.
