"Children look up. All they hear is sky-blue bells ringing."

Sunny this morning, but there's a chill and virtually nothing out there is green. Currently, it's 56˚F. No cloud in the hungry sky.

You may have noted these entries aren't turning up on Dreamwidth. The user interface at Dreamwidth is just too counter-intuitive and complex, and I have not had the time or energy or interest to deal with it.

No writing yesterday. Like much of last week, yesterday was a loss. And it's mostly my own fault. I've almost finished with Cormac McCarthy's Outer Dark (1968). I'm listening to a lot of R.E.M.

How can it be Friday already? How can it already be 2017?

Resistance, Peace, and Compassion,
