yippie dog, walking, fruit, medication

There’s a dog outside–it sounds like it’s in the Dairy Queen parking lot–that’s been yipping and barking for hours now. At first I thought a Dairy Queen visitor had left their dog in the car, but it’s been too long for that now, and I’m confused. This morning I went for a walk at the […]

music, two kinds

Yesterday I went to my friend P’s house to talk and practice harmonium. I’m learning the Sunday morning worship songs. It’s interesting to get to know a new instrument–it’s been years. The left hand works the bellows, and the right hand plays the keyboard. P says I’m working too hard, so next time I’m going […]

three media consumptions

I watched Gigantic: A Tale of Two Johns, which is a documentary about one of my favorite bands, They Might Be Giants. I found it inspiring. It made me feel like there are more possibilities in the world for me, a badly-needed feeling. I’ve also listened to two new CDs lately (new to me)–Unplugged by […]
