Opinion | ‘I Want to Be at the Table When the Next Donald Trump Shows Up’ – The New York Times

I took to running, but I didn’t keep it up. I took to doing push-ups in the morning, which I have kept up. It makes my heart feel better. I’ve become (I hope) a kinder, more inquisitive friend with my conservative neighbors. And finally, I’ve thrown myself into trees. Not into them, literally. But into planting them. I’ve collected thousands of acorns, seeds, cones, samaras, and I now have a nursery of small trees that I regularly push into the ground. — David Cater, 51, Colmesneil, Texas
