Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

Image


Snowing … “The snow has quietness in it; no songs, no smells, no shouts or traffic. When I speak my own voice shocks me.” (Anne Sexton, All My Pretty Ones.).”

Live & Learn

There is Something about being out and about and walking @ Daybreak as light snow falls.

And in a city of ~130,000, not a single set of tracks on any of the footpaths.

Just fresh fallen snow, silence, and me.

The snow has quietness in it; no songs, no smells, no shouts or traffic. When I speak my own voice shocks me.” (Anne Sexton, All My Pretty Ones.)

DK @ Daybreak. 6:32 am, January 24, 2022. 25° F, feels like 15° F. Light Snow. Cove Island Park, Stamford, CT. More shots from this morning’s walk here.

Sunday Morning

Here’s sending you the best, enlightened energy to deal with ‘the issue’ … keep us posted!! — “And then it’s back to this morning’s walk, and here we are. Walking, on these same knees. And yes, overwhelmed by the beauty of it all.”

Live & Learn

+ Sunday Morning. Sully waiting, not-so-patiently, for his pancake breakfast. And blueberries, ah so sweet blueberries, hand picked from the hills of Peru, they go down first.  + This morning’s walk. 40° F, yet feels like I’m traipsing through Antarctica, without the ice pack. Wind gusts up to 35 mph, finding exposed skin on the back of my neck. “To enjoy bodily warmth, some small part of you must be cold, for there is no quality in this world that is not what it is merely by contrast. Nothing exists in itself.” (Moby Dick) + Email 8 weeks ago, I concluded it was spam. Trashed it. Same email 4 weeks ago, this one catches my attention. It was related to a blog post, a silly, innocuous blog post, including a photo from the internet, source attributed in the post, and without knowledge of any copyright restrictions…

A world lives in you.”

Happy Caturday …. “🐱 ‘We Really Missed You, Mommies 🐱 …. “!!

~~November 20, 2021~~

WHILE YOU WERE AWAY

This is really, really amazing!! Frida doesn’t really stay on either lap – it’s just not her and, frankly sometimes, Kitty doesn’t let her!!

Add another important fact, they are calmly resting, laying, sleeping relatively close to each other.

This is a HUGE deal!!

Where did this come from? It’s all here … “Conservative, you think you’re funny and clever, but you’re not. On top of that, you’re cowards. If you want to say, “Fuck Joe Biden,” then say, “Fuck Joe Biden.” And guess what. We don’t care. I’m not going to lose sleep because a bunch of white nationalists has hairs up their racist asses. We understand you can’t get over the fact Biden defeated your cult leader in a democratic election. Wah. Get over it.”

Let’s start the day with honesty. A lot of stuff we said about Donald Trump, myself included, wasn’t very mature. In fact, we were kinda juvenile with it.

Orange Shitgibbon, Orange Julius, Cheeto Jesus, Hair, Fuhrer, Heir Hitler, Heir Ceasar, Diaper Don, Cadet Bone Spurs, Screaming Carrot Demon, Grandpa Fucko, Tangerine Tornado, Mussolini’s Taint, Creep Throat, Shitler, Groper-in-Chief, Trumplethinskin, Drumpf, Fuckface Von Clownstick, Short-Fingered Vulgarian, Adolf Twitler, Putin’s Puppet, Angry Creamsicle, Oompa Loompa, Baby Fingers, Blitzkrieg Bozo, White Kanya, Sniffles the Clown, Bumbledore, Butternut Squash, Cheddar Boy, Sack of Gilded Lunchmeat, Cheeto Benito, Fascist Carnival Barker, Fascist fuckwad, Cinnamon Hitler, Orange Anus, Lady Fingers, and Tiny are all pretty silly nicknames.

However, juvenile they may be, they’re funny, clever, and a hell of a lot better than “Let’s go Brandon.”

What’s “Let’s Go Brandon?” It’s conservative’s code for “Fuck Joe Biden.” And conservatives say, “The left can’t meme.”

Immerse yourself with Van Gogh

Seem clips of it! Seems awesome!! … “It is a blend of wonderful music highlighting Van Gogh’s wonderful art as it appears slowly at times and explodes on occasion onto every wall of of a large exhibit room.”

musingsofanoldfart

My wife and I went for a second time yesterday to see the “Immersive Van Gogh” exhibit that has been making its way across the country. This time we took two of our adult children to experience it. They enjoyed it as much as we did. What is it?

It is a blend of wonderful music highlighting Van Gogh’s wonderful art as it appears slowly at times and explodes on occasion onto every wall of of a large exhibit room. The fact it is not a rectangular room aids to the viewing, as you could change your position on your bench seat (built for two or three) and see nooks of art or turn around and see a larger wall.

The viewing is of repetitive segments of about fifty feet long where the art comes alive. The immersive experience has the computer presented art actually moving, whether it is shimmering…

End This Wicked Marriage

The ‘evangelical commnity” … is indeed wicked!! – Gerry of Grumpy’s Grumblings – “His voice, unfortunately, is like a lone howling wolf in the wilderness, especially as it relates to the evangelical community.

Indeed, those folks are a tough nut to crack. As he so often has pointed out here in this space, on our blog, they’re like a bunch of sheep in a herd. Critical thinking is discouraged. Dissent is a quashed, quickly and forcefully.”

On The Fence Voters

Our friend Jerry over at Grumpy’s Grumblings has a big announcement today. The book he’s been working on for several months, is finally finished. I want to officially offer my congratulations to him for getting it done. His voice, unfortunately, is like a lone howling wolf in the wilderness, especially as it relates to the evangelical community. Indeed, those folks are a tough nut to crack. As he so often has pointed out here in this space, on our blog, they’re like a bunch of sheep in a herd. Critical thinking is discouraged. Dissent is a quashed, quickly and forcefully.

That’s why his courage to speak out must be amplified and spread as often as possible. And if I can help him in that endeavor, I’m honored to do so whenever I can. Here is a small excerpt from his announcement. Please click on the link at the end to…
