Move where, says I

Move anywhere, says the song

But I'm tired, says I…

Mathematics and Beauty

One Sunday morning, following the visiting speaker’s sermon that dealt in some way with the beautiful, the service leader asked members of the congregation to put forth the things they found beautiful.  Finally, a retired professor of physics stood and asked whether anyone found mathematics beautiful.  No one admitted to it.

As someone who finds beauty in a lot of different things - music, art, nature – I was made to ask myself whether I had ever found beauty in any mathematical…

Race, Religion and Politics...

...three things to never discuss at Thanksgiving or any other holiday dinner. 

Over the years here on Our Salon and back on Open Salon, I have been accused of being an anti-Semitic, pro-Israeli, unconscious racist, ignorant sexist, privileged old white dude by a variety of people.  On occasion I've…

Roots

I was listening to public radio last night in the way back from the supermarket and wine store where I was picking up stuff for Shabbat kiddush (blessing over wine) and dinner when I heard a piece on the influence of gospel on blues. Not singing gospel, preaching it. The program was demonstrating how a great preacher, Rev. C. L. Franklin, who preached in the fifties, influenced Bobby Bland. Listening to the sound of,this man preaching was amazing.



This is not the cut from last night,… Continue

It Takes Too Long To Get It All Wrong

All night sleep was a mystery I couldn't solve.

It came in sideways against the glass.

The steady pulse distracted me.

I let my thoughts wander.

The calm has returned.

Temporal respite.

Monkeys, trains, and more: A two-year-old's video playlist

Julien is almost two and a half years old, and he’s watched his share of videos and TV shows by now.  

It was never our intention to plunk our kid down in front of the TV, computer, or tablet all day.  But I have nothing against TV – in fact, growing up, I think I learned a…

Life and Death

Yesterday was my husbands 68th, a reminder to me mine is next month.  For the next month I will get to be his "younger woman".  He will be my "older man".

All I Want Is The Truth

I'm sick and tired of hearing things

From uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocrites

All I want is the truth

Just gimme some truth

I've had enough of reading things

By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians

All I want is the truth

Just gimme some truth

~ John Winston Lennon

Obscurity Is Music To My Ears

My friends have teased me in the past for listening to—what they call—obscure music groups. I don’t think of these artists as obscure, though. They may not have had the longevity of, say, The Rolling Stones, but many of them are still around despite not having released many albums. The reason I bring this up is because music has always been a tremendous inspiration for me when writing. It keeps me fueled. And the reason it even got brought up at all is because I was listening to a podcast…

Blood, Sweat, and Tears…Mostly Sweat…An Evening With John Carpenter

My husband HATES going to concerts. Hates em’. He has a wonderful time during the show, but before one? Forget it. It would be more comfortable having one’s testicles pounded flat with a wooden mallet than to get him to go to a concert in a good mood. So, my birthday gift this year was a ticket to see legendary director John Carpenter perform a concert in downtown Detroit. My husband would not have to accompany me. Nope. That honor was left to Little Brother.

Now here’s the kicker.…
