In the popular parlance, streaming is now how many people view media content. Not us; not yet anyway. Consciousness streams here in this post
Two months since the last post on Views. An epoch in the blogosphere.
Stuff happens. Like:
- Confirmation of occasional AFib after the third incident in two and a half years; Eliquis time–stop taking formerly favorite pills
- Rotator cuff surgery for her; shopping, cooking, laundry, etc. for me–and personal assistance to her
- Physical therapy for my knee–hey, a future fitness program at the local gym
Yes, growing old is not for sissies. Then there’s the other things like scheduled–and unscheduled home maintenance projects. Puts a kink in the writing schedule. Blogging AND getting out that delayed blog-to-book project.
Oh well, as a self-published writer I have no editor, agent or publisher to deal with.
- Joe Biden has accomplished much in just a few months
- The Party of NO (AKA, Republicans) oppose or delay in Congress
- The insurrection continues in slow motion as Red states throughout America pass legislation to suppress votes and enable themselves to overturn the results of coming elections if not to their liking [more later on that–here or in the Eagle Peak Annual coming later this year]
We ARE determined to help get past the cultural and divides in America. It begins with what Nichiren Buddhists refer to as human revolution. Change from within manifests without.
Don’t blame the politicians for the weather (but get them working on the climate crisis) nor expect them to ensure your happiness and success. Don’t blame THEM (those of other races, religions, ethnicity or sexual orientation) either.
The pandemic is nearly over, but all the unavoidable, unexpected and frustrating obstacles still make planning getaways more than just challenging.
Nature just carries on, despite unfavorable weather–some of the time, in some places. Little or no rain fell in southwestern New Mexico in 2020. Didn’t faze the cacti and the agave. We had at least 50–maybe 60 of the latter bloom this year; the most ever.
The many cholla (another cactus relative) have flowers too. There all volunteers, except for the potted cacti. Coming soon, more reasons to visit Silver City–and maybe some updates on deferred writing project.
