Wrapping Up the Week for 31July2022

Intro

What kind of week has this been? Hmmm, I’d have to say it’s a pretty good one. One of the bugaboos of my life is insomnia, but this has been a solid sleep week. It makes so much difference.

Oh! Wednesday was our 22nd wedding anniversary. I feel amazingly lucky to have found someone so extraordinary. I couldn’t love her more if this was the lovingest day of my life and I was hooked up to an electrified loving machine. After dinner we visited a monthly block party not far from where we live: Heighted Senses.

Okra started fruiting this week. Only 3 pods so far, but in about a week we’ll start our summer tradition of okra-all-the-fucking-time. Fortunately I love okra in every possible form. The rest of the plants aren’t doing so well, but the Florida sun can be brutal.

And that’s about it. Here are some links. Hope you find something fun among them.

“In February 2017, the Stultifera Navis Institutom made a first expedition to the center of the Baja California peninsula with a specific purpose: to read poetry to the whales. The site chosen was the one where the largest recorded slaughter of this creature ever took place.”

News

I assume you already have your preferred news source(s). Here are sites I use to supplement my news diet.

  • Wonkette – I love the cursing and share their love of Molly Ivins.
  • Popular Information – independent investigative journalism.
  • WikiNews – Wikipedia has a news page. It can be kind of hit or miss, but I always use it when I’m following a breaking news story.

Spirituality/Self Improvement

“Chen Tuan presided over a revival of Taoism, and is especially famous for his dream practice. He spent his later years in a cave at the Jade Clear Spring Monastery. Today it is a shrine with a statue of him in a classic pose of the dream adept known as Sleeping Tiger. He lies on his right side, with his right hand cupping his ear. His followers claimed he would lie in this position for days or even months while he traveled beyond space and time in his subtle body.”

TV

  • This week I watched Harley Quinn (animated series), Only Murders in the Building, and Frighteners (1996).

If I were in LA, I’d be visiting the Everything But the Kitchen Sink-Group Show Exhibition: July 16 – August 28, 2022 at La Luz de Jesus Gallery.
