The Lone Ranger gets schooled

I’d rather things were boring. Opening up a page with the news is like drinking from a fire hose running at full blast. A bit much. Other than that things are simpler. Keeping occupied in retirement is hobbies. Keeping alive vs the existential threat of the moment, is just another pastime. But it was alwaysContinue reading “The Lone Ranger gets schooled”

Four Months of THIS !

Back in March the Forth of July seemed a long ways away. It was gonna be warm. On the 4th we’d have a cookout, family at safe distances (mom is 96) but the weather was cold and clammy. I am reminded of Mark Twain saying that the coldest winter he ever had was summer inContinue reading “Four Months of THIS !”

Yo y el primero de Julio

Its been raining. The weeds must be thriving out there in the damp. The First day of July and winter is just around the corner. I always feel we’re coasting from this point. That’s Maine weather, seasonal to perfection. It will get hot and cool off. If we are lucky the late Summer and FallContinue reading “Yo y el primero de Julio”

Equilibrium Fractured

“May you live in interesting times” well, we got our wish. My instinct somehow is to think its one crisis at a time. It isn’t of course. The crises don’t have a coordinating committee assigning different pains in the ass at different times to different creatures. No, they pile on. Can’t blame the virus forContinue reading “Equilibrium Fractured”

July’s leading edge

Haven’t posted anything here for a week plus. My mood shifts in normal times. I might feel like putting together content one day and not the next. I have other activities so its not like I am fetal lining in a spider hole. That’s too much like being inturd, a shitty feeling… but do weContinue reading “July’s leading edge”

Juneteenth+1 in Tulsa

The idiot in chief says he made Juneteenth famous. He did put a spot light on it. We’ve seen enough of his clown act to know there are several angles on what he does. He claims ignorance of the significance of the 19th of June for black citizens. Declaring his ignorance, which I guess weContinue reading “Juneteenth+1 in Tulsa”

Micro code as therapy

Not yet being compost my grey matter likes exercise. The website offers some. There’s the drawing. The writing, both prose and the other stuff. Projects in the back yard. I finally put that kiwi plant into weed Valhalla. My resolve to build the tiny house weakens, flickers then flares up again. As the old sayingContinue reading “Micro code as therapy”

An afternoon at Laite Beach

Invisible cats ran over the waterVisible dogs ran across the sandThe cats left cat’s paw dimpled waterThe dogs left sandy divots on the strand Elbows to picnic table, binoculars to eye.A sailor in sailboat long hauling home I spyProfligate jib and mainsail full and spilling air  That’s a wealthy sailor, one having wind to spareContinue reading “An afternoon at Laite Beach”
