IOTD …. “🇵🇷⚾️ Images of the Day, Very Special …. ‘Roberto Clemente – #21’ ⚾️🇵🇷 …. “!!

ROBERTO CLEMENTE DAY

Every September, Roberto Clemente Day is celebrated around the baseball world.

His storied name is synonymous with moral excellence, compassion and charitable work.

Whether it was in his adopted home of Pittsburgh, his native soil Puerto Rico, or even the largest country in Central America, Nicaragua, the fans and followers have never forgotten this selfless living soul.

Our memories are not only of a proud ballplayer who had an extraordinary career but also about the character and courage of a human being affectionately called ‘The Great One,” Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente Walker.

TODAY WE ALL WEAR NUMBER 21

The final story is well known. The life led before the tragic end, however, reveals the depth of Clemente’s strength. The people he touched are numerous.

On Dec. 23, 1972, Nicaragua suffered a devastating natural disaster-an earthquake. It left incredible damage throughout the capital of Managua. In only eight days, Clemente’s impassioned pleas throughout Puerto Rico resulted in donations of $150,000, numerous boxes of food, clothing and medical needs. But Clemente had heard reports that the donations were not being distributed to those who needed them the most.

On the evening of Dec. 31, Clemente boarded a plane filled with relief supplies, but the overloaded plane would never reach its final destination.

It plunged into the ocean off the shores of Puerto Rico.

Widespread Panic


DOES ANYONE BUY THIS? PANIC? … Can’t say it better … “Trump’s excuse for lying to the public about the realities of the coronavirus is that he didn’t want to cause a panic. That’s what he told Bob Woodward on the tapes. That’s what Kayleigh McEnany told us yesterday. And that’s what Trump repeated and claimed was leadership. But those of us who live in reality have already been panicking since election night in 2016.”

Donald Trump’s excuse for lying to the public about the realities of the coronavirus is that he didn’t want to cause a panic. That’s what he told Bob Woodward on the tapes. That’s what Kayleigh McEnany told us yesterday. And that’s what Trump repeated and claimed was leadership. But those of us who live in reality have already been panicking since election night in 2016.

After Bob Woodward’s book “Fear” came out without any cooperation from Donald Trump, he decided to be interviewed for the next one. For “Rage,” Donald Trump gave 18 interviews. He agreed to be recorded. As it turns out, he’d often call Woodward late at night, probably right after he got off the phone with Sean Hannity.

It’s not shocking Donald Trump would lie to us. I even saw that as a defense from one fucknut on social media yesterday. What’s shocking is that Donald Trump…

Today’s Forecast: Rain


Love the look of autumn and the sound of rain … ” You turn your head – that’s what the silence meant: you’re not alone.
The whole wide world pours down.” – William Stafford, “Assurance” in The Way It Is: New & Selected Poems.

Live & Learn

You will never be alone, you hear so deep
a sound when autumn comes. Yellow
pulls across the hills and thrums,
or the silence after lightening before it says
its names—and then the clouds’ wide-mouthed
apologies. You were aimed from birth:
you will never be alone. Rain
will come, a gutter filled, an Amazon,
long aisles—you never heard so deep a sound,
moss on rock, and years. You turn your head—
that’s what the silence meant: you’re not alone.
The whole wide world pours down.

~ William Stafford, “Assurance” in The Way It Is: New & Selected Poems

What ‘moved’ you today?


I saw that story!! It tugged at my heart too … my thoughts are with you and yours!! Tight, Boricua hug!! … have to share!!

Live & Learn

Short story.

How did we get here with this random, mid-day post.

Ray, a fellow wordpress blogger, who must be beyond fatigued with my photo hobby posts across social media and my incessant sharing of book passages and quotes, said “ENOUGH already” and asked for a story.  And when Ray demands, I move.

So, I’m giving him one.  And it aligns with the spirt of this blog — if it moves me, it goes up.

My youngest Brother recently passed away.  I am the Personal Representative of his Estate. It has been a journey in this COVID-19 environment to settle his affairs, and we’re far from done. Let’s leave this at that.

I’m sitting in a bank branch this morning waiting to get help. I’m holding my smartphone in my hand, and a file folder with my Brother’s paperwork on my lap.

And I’m waiting and waiting and waiting…
