    Seeing Paul

    by  •  • LifeStuff • 0 Comments

    Yesterday morning as I was driving to work, images of a bespectacled Paul went through my mind, and I was briefly sad. Paul was a guy I met probably 8 or 9 years ago. I had met him through a church Sunday School class we were in, but our connections went a little deeper....

    Coder Day 2217

    Today is just a flat journal entry about spending the day in the office. Mostly because it was a long day staring at the screen. This morning an online survey we made available last night to a certain audience registered entries for only English respondents. Of 800+ replies end day, if the instructions invited...

    Today, Tim and I shared a humorous episode while doing some cosmetic and triage work in the alley behind the office. For some reason, a blue recycling bin ended up placed behind our office near the steps to our back door. The bin sat by our back door, but our office had not ordered...

    Cabrini–Green

    One time we made an unconscious turn and wandered amidst the cement steles each great monolith like the other fire doors and fires escapes gray statues on a cement pond where litter floated here and there like dead fish. We did not know. “Hey, white girl” a low male voice called. It was a...

    I spent a good chunk of time on Sunday morning trying to sit back down into my research efforts on Anza. Some of the time was spent trying to read a few more pages in the Anza book, and some of the time was also spent transcribing chicken scratch notes written on a legal...

    Blackest Days

    The weird thing is I don’t remember any of it, at the end, what happened when the bottom fell out. I look back and it’s like I was drugged out or something, because it was just months of mounting fighting and ugly words and silence and deep pain mixed with numbness and aloneness at...

    The Castle

    I live my life in a fairly large sphere of silence, and I guess I make it that way. It’s not that I am not without noise and distraction around me, because I am usually busy doing something with the TV or a radio on nearby, feeding me music and talk. I just don’t...

    Crew-sin!

    I went to the library this afternoon to check out a book I had been wanting to read for a while- “Manhood”, by Terry Crews. Terry is the muscly guy that was in Old Spice commercials a few years back. He’s also a regular actor, currently in the Fox comedy, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine’, but also...

    It’s a funny thing. You write because you want your thoughts and your ideas to be shared, to be enjoyed. You want to express your mental machinations and maybe share an insight or two on life and things going on in the world. And you create a platform- a blog- to do just that,...

    Fuzzy Humanity

    Maybe I just lack scientific creativity. Maybe I don’t understand science. Or maybe I just don’t understand the endgame of postmodern thinking. Tim let me know today that after the Whanganui River in New Zealand was granted personhood last week- with a whole sphere of legal benefits given to it as a human- several...
