What do you say we have a little fun with today’s post? It’s been nothing but serious serious serious in the news lately, and politics politics politics. The serious politics bit is why I’ve gone down to blogging one day a week. Everyone, including myself, is so paranoid about what’s going on in Washington, we’re not reading much for pleasure. Even I have the “Oh, Christ, what’s he done now???” mentality. So, what could we do today to lighten the mood? I have an idea.

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. It’s 8 a.m. on a Sunday morning, and Jim Glzorp readily admits he’d rather be in bed than standing outside in the cold handing out leaflets at a strip mall. “I’ve successfully avoided politics all my life,” he says, as his 9-year-old son Jim, Jr. hugs his leg. “When I read about all the crazies out there these days, I had to start getting involved–for my kid’s future.”

Last fall, while staying at the Caring House in Durham, N.C., I realized that I had been putting the flatware in the dishwasher upside down. Early in our marriage we bought some stainless that had knives with pointed knives. Most table knives are rounded on the end; these weren’t. The tip of one of the…Continue

That's what's in my camera phone from the last couple of weeks.
My brother in law has unfortunately found himself in territory I know all too well - he lost his first-born son and was a couple of rooms over while it was happening. Our wives our sisters. Within the last couple of years, my mother in law also lost her first born son,…Continue

We have a major problem with homelessness in Downtown Seattle. There are abuses out of control at DESC. It's a business. I have seen a woman known as Svetla to go from one camp into another. She had a tattoo on her wrist. She ended up bitten by bed bugs, bleeding. There is a rule at DESC, and that is, if they take your belongings, you may stay. If they keep them, you can go back out on the streets. I was there. A variety of reasons led me to homelessness. Childhood abuse. But the sweeps of…Continue

'"Let me give you an example. Let us say you want to be a great musician, and you want your music to create wealth for you. But you are frustrated in making it work. So you get drunk from time to time. You cannot communicate with an inner energy if you do not maintain balance, if you get drunk all of the time. Drinking becomes an irrelevant side path, so dump it.

One day Marilyn Monroe confessed a crush on Abraham Lincoln: “He was such a great guy. When I see a man like that, I would love to just sit on his lap.”

At least in part.
The artist, in the end, doesn’t have to mean anything. That is the nice thing about art. We see the intriguing in…. a garbage dump, or even a scarred body. Where once word smiths (so called philosophers) wrote about what were suitable subjects for art. Artists now can ignore the words and just make.…

OK, so I have to make some thoughtful thoughts on the collapse of AHCA. Just one: Kim Jong-Don and the Tea Baggers finally figured out that neither was the round hole for their square peg. The Tea Baggers saw Kim Jong-Don as easily maneuvered from his "Populist" rhetoric to their outright fascism, while Kim Jong-Don figured that the Tea Baggers would actually swallow whatever not-leftwing projects he tried.
