something different

Today was cloudy. It rained for about three minutes, more like sprinkling but big drops. I was very impressed. In the afternoon I was lonely and chatted on the new Icarus chat. I met an interesting couple in Buenos Aires. I learned of a site called deoxy.org and learned what DMT is. Psychedelics are the… Read More »

reprieve

This morning I went to county pharmacy to pick up refills. I went right at 8 and only had to wait for half an hour. I finally finished the DH Lawrence book I’ve been reading for weeks Women in Love. The ending is very dramatic. Today was an excellent mail day. I got two letters,… Read More »

some baking, a trip to Davis

Today I baked a carrot cake. The recipe calls for some apple juice, but we didn’t have any, so I used orange juice instead, and it really added something. I also made some baba ganoush with the eggplant I got at the farmers market this morning. I’ve been reading Take the Cannoli by Sarah Vowell,… Read More »

today’s better than yesterday

This morning we went to the farmers market for nectarines, broccoli, eggplant, a melon. It was fun. Then we went to the touchless car wash and washed the car and the truck. Both were filthy. Now Erik is meditating, and I just worked on the review for No One Belongs Here More Than You by… Read More »

Today I read the first half of No One Belongs Here More Than You by Miranda July, which was sent to me by my friend A. I think it’s brilliant, but it’s also disturbing. None of the blurbs on the back mention the disturbing part. Today was remarkable in that workers came and installed a… Read More »

two dreams from #41

the blue glove I dropped one of my blue gloves into the river far, far below. I asked a little girl to get it for me, because the river was so shallow there, and I could see it. I was too tired / busy to go. She said yes–then I realized this was a dangerous… Read More »

how we spent our holiday

Today we went to Pt Reyes. We took a little hike down to the beach. I sat in a cliff shade while Erik took tide pool pictures. On the trail, we saw some pink flowers with four dark pink spots. They were so pretty. None of his pictures of them really turned out. But here’s… Read More »

gardening, a miracle

This morning instead of my usual walk, I went to Vedanta and pulled weeds for half an hour. I also started working on some ivy that’s growing up some trees, but then I got spooked standing in that ivy, thinking there might be a snake in it. Afterward I ran into J and we talked… Read More »

walks, neighbor revelation, farther / further

The morning walk has become a normal occurrence. Every day I go a little farther. But today I must have been walking extra-quick because despite the extra distance, my walk took less time. Tricky! I had a revelation yesterday. It has to do with loving my neighbors as myself. I realized that hating my neighbors… Read More »
