Frost touches allDon't join the book burners. Don't think you're going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go in your library and read every book...-- Dwight D. Eisenhower
Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is in illness, because illness contains information, your fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if you explore them. -- Marilyn Ferguson
You, too, can read bad haiku on USAToday
She shuffles along
As he catches up; then she
Hits him with her cane.
Hollywood stars in
Popcorn and glamour mix.
Six more weeks of winter
Talking to the young women about being 49
Then seeing this article about Gloria Steinem
Guess 70 might not be so bad either! But what a hoot, I think of my gramma at 70...and Gloria Steinem is NOT what I think of! But I do like this quote by a women named Doris Bersing, "Steinem, she adds, "is a wonderful icon to show you can be old and still kick (butt)." Also found an article in the print edition of USAToday about Tina Turner, who has the best legs on the planet (she is 65) but didn't see it online to link.
I'd been waiting for two books, an NIV Daily Walk Bible (it's been years since I read the Bible front to back and thought this would be a good way to tackle it) and the other Pope Joan novel. Got them both used from www.alibris.com for good prices; the only slightly bad part is the week wait for arrival.
Might have been the most stunning morning this week, because if there had been fog in the night, it was gone; the sun was coming up, so it was light; and the sky was only partly cloudy, and all pink and blue. Every tree was white; the temperature was about 11; I thought maybe I had driven into a scene from The Day After Tomorrow.
At the Rollerdome
Does nothing ever change here? The music does, slightly--Outkast and Eminem to skate by, but they still crank up oldies for some of the special activities, like the limbo. Spent a lot of time at the south Rollerdome while the kids were in elementary school--they loved going. Julian's little Tiger Cub troup spent little time skating but a lot of time at the games, winning tickets to trade for prices.
