eve babitz and joan didion died within a week. never heard of the former til recently and wanted to indulge but read some didion back in the day when i read at all. she definitely seems like the patron st of cool chick writers for cool chick writers if they managed to live through their sylvia plath phase.

CHRISTMAS 2021

 

 

On the Color Wheel

Red and Green

Are opposites

But the technical term is Complimentary Colors

They call across the Spectrum

And vibrate in one another’s presence

 

In a time of too much opposition

Remember how Red and Green

Resolve their conflict 

Conjoining as the

Colors of Christmas

for some reason got a royal caribbean cruise ad in my email. just looking at the seven photos in the ad only to quickly notice that there was not a cruise ship among them. tough times when your best option is hiding the thing you are trying to sell.

So, NYC is about to play Portland for the MLS championship, and I haven't heard a word about it on DMTree?

Another question is why don't I have permission to post to 110%?

Researchers working with Google's quantum computer lab might have created a time crystal. The paper is still in pre print and yet to be peer reviewed. Extremely deep rabbit hole ahead.

This is the 100th anniversary of my Mother's birth.

I didn't write a lot about her, but here is the eulogy I wrote for her. I don’t think I shared it at the time.

She died in 2007. She left her body to medical research, and didn’t give us any funerary directions. The next year my sister and I gathered with my Mother’s three sisters and our cousins for a remembrance. I opened and closed it with songs from records that I knew she liked because she bought them twice; first on vinyl, then CD. 

Here she is in 1944, with her sisters (by age) left to right: Mom (Elizabeth,) Margaret (Peggy,) Virginia, Isabel.
