First Thoughts

HCR meter would be depressing if i didn’t already know its truths, which is that a vocal minority bent on an authoritarian government is trying to take over the country… that a significant enough number of my fellow citizens don’t give a damn about what the majority of the country wants… it all hinges on Democrats being willing to kill the filibuster… all eyes on the Senate…

… the mostly white patriarchy is holding on for dear life against the rising multicultural tide… we have the numbers if we have the will to fight…

… dinner at M’s last night, PG, PW, K and E there for cocktails, M and PG for dinner…

… i drank more wine than i wanted to, walked a perilous line on politics and religion, came home and barely remember going to bed… i think we watched some news and then H woke me up to go to bed… don’t feel bad this morning, but morning is young…

… been steadily working on the puzzle the L’s left behind… slow going, maybe 10 to 20 pieces a day… going a little faster now as the pieces are fewer in number… i wonder about puzzles, what makes them fun, i suppose it is the challenge and the slow appearance of a picture… this one is of the Eiffel Tower… it’s not a particularly nice image of it… i’ve seen much more compelling puzzle images…

… i glance up and my eyes fall on a Tibetan singing bowl on the mantle… i remember B making it sing during the fish dinner… B is a spiritual person… S is more down to earth… i remember the sumac berries i harvested yesterday and begin to prepare warm water to soak them in… and now they are soaking… it is warm water as opposed to boiling to avoid leaching tannins out of the seeds which make it bitter… i think i will try to make some jam out of it too…
