access pass

We are going to Death Valley tomorrow to see the wildflower superbloom.  I wonder if that will make it crowded.  I love the desert.  But the high there tomorrow is 37, and it’s supposed to be windy. My sleep schedule is so f-ed that I don’t ever have a feel for what time it is. […]

happy Sunday

Yesterday I posted that Do Small Things With Great Love pic on my facebook and got lots of attention as a result.  It felt good, but it happens in cyberspace, and I would rather do things in regular space.  A friend I knew as a teenager was curious about prison abolition, and we commented back […]

the knock

Today it’s supposed to hit 70–sweet.  Then it will rain tomorrow, is the predication, then cool off, getting back to freezing at night. Sorry if you don’t care about the weather.  I guess it’s important to me but probably not you.  You have your own weather to think about.  Unless you live in a dome. […]

strenuous stilts

This is an art zine by david sait of Canada.  It’s beautiful and brief. I like the colors, the shapes, the feelings, the moods. I like the chaos of some of the pages.  I like the collage.  Sait’s art is greater than the sum of its parts. strenuousstilts.tumblr.com

I can handle this day

Yesterday we came home in the late afternoon.  We didn’t know what we’d come home to–there have been handypersons for weeks.  But all was calm–no handypeople.  Just regular people. Ming is out serving the hungry.  Last night at community dinner I got overloaded and left early.  I think I was still on retreat in my […]
