    It wasn’t the best of times, it wasn’t the worst of times. It was before my first cup of coffee, so it wasn’t any time at all. That is, I had no temporal or spatial reference when the crackling and crashing began. Was I still in bed dreaming? Or standing in the kitchen by a monstrous, superdecibelious juice extractor? It was then the explosion made me jump to the wall as bed, lamp and dresser plunged from above, confusing both space and time, which I thought had ended. Now awake, I grabbed my smartphone and saw the news, Richter 5.0.

    It wasn’t the best of times, it wasn’t the worst of times. It was before I even read that morning’s headlines in the ‘Times’ newspaper. The first thing I always read every morning is the obituary column, to see if I’m still alive. Apparently, I’m not. I died of unnatural causes, namely drowning in a vat of single malt whisky. Carting these wings and a harp about were clues I suppose and the fact that I had been particularly light headed for a couple of days whilst seemingly meeting old friends I thought were dead.

    It wasn’t the best of times, it wasn’t the worst of times. It was before the 2016 U.S. elections, I decided at 19:21 on November 8th that this presented an opportunity to assume narrating while ‘walking the walk’ with the first female President, Hillary Clinton as I did with the first African American, Barack Obama from 2008 to 2012 in self-published “Raindrops”. Many nations from Turkey to Israel, and Germany and England had enjoyed female commanders-in-chief but still not the USA, the cradle of democracy! Instead, on November 9th, I witnessed a ‘yuge’ reality distortion alla Americana, produced in Hollywood studios.
