There was nothing further to do but wait. The customary agenda fell into place. Breakfast of ham and eggs. And a sliced green apple. In and out of the shower then onto the bike.

This evening is the inaugural installation of the new municipal council back home. The bipartisan nature of politics - broadly between the right and the left, liberal and conservative, merchants and developers, locals and newbies, redneck and artsy/fartsy - is growing at every level of government, municipal, provincial and federal. Even internationally. Though there are those who seek to promote civility among opposing residents the human instinct for Schadenfreude will no doubt endure as the winners gleefully relive their victory over the losers. Elections are a fitful method to restore cooperation, being instead housekeeping on a murderous scale. Thus the pendulum swings until the murky evolution commands clarification.
