Lorianne's closing Our Salon: In case you didn't get this email or haven't seen it:

I will be discontinuing this network beginning July 1, 2019. I have supported this project financially for many years now with very little help from membership and am choosing to stop doing that. I do not have the time nor the desire to continue to do so. This decision is non-negotiable and there is no mechanism for transfer of ownership to another.

Hopefully everyone learned from the past and has been saving their posts on their own computer. If…

Memorial Day and the Tale of Two American Generals

Do You Know What You're Talking About?: Climate Change and Global Warming

Climate change occurs when changes in Earth's climate system result in new weatherpatterns that last for at least a few decades, and maybe for millions of years. The climate system is comprised of five interacting parts, the atmosphere (air), hydrosphere (water), cryosphere (ice and permafrost), biosphere(living things), and lithosphere (earth's crust and upper mantle). The climate system receives nearly all of its energy from the sun, with a relatively tiny amount from earth's interior. The…

Note to Self: No Clock Is Ticking

                       ...Except the one placed in my head.

        I did not put  a clock in between my own ears. I don’t wear a watch, but I’m obsessed with time, nonetheless. There is no clock ticking but I know I have to be at the Lion’s club by 6:30 a.m. to serve beverages tomorrow, and next Saturday too. Veterans eat free, as do the homeless, selectively, get fed. I’m not the decider. 

        I’ve long argued that service is an art form. Chicago decides where our dues…

The Democratization of Capitalism?

Equity and equality in Income and wealth lie in the tangibles required to:

Make Something

Sell Something

Move Something

Income and wealth inequality and inequity lie in speculation on stock prices and futures in Wall Street hedge funds....

Labor v Capital

People v Profit

Freedom and Justice for All cannot eminate from a society which is predicated on the competitive expediency of…

I’m Not Playing

         

                           I try to keep it light. It takes me hours to unwind, and get settled into the current project which is Raytheon5. I try to ignore the sense of urgency; that feeling everything is on the line, because everything is always on the line. I’ve been able to secure that line pretty well, but Nature holds all the cards, all the time.

Square Knotted Red Bandanna

Cogent reactance: holly holy. Cyber letters, H photographing the green, green sliding green door outside Zeidler Park, his bracelet dangerously wet with tuff nuff fescue, emboldened drake and mallard, calm, natural magnificent web feet neath the mulberry. There ought to be a honed blade, button pressed, that carbon sputter whirling zero radius perfectly etched circled, cut, slashed. Intrusive rhyme, that street lady with known worldly goods, chain smoking, smudged glasses, words…
