Reflections: Aiming for Positivity


On the bright side, living with sorrow is orders of magnitude better than living with dread.

R.I.P. Feather the Wonder Cat



REST IN PEACE, my darling FEATHER (a.k.a. Daisy, a.k.a. Winky, a.k.a. the Wonder Cat)
A ritual I will dearly miss:
Every day when I came home from work, Feather would have me timed. She would be waiting at the kitchen window and begin meowing loudly and enthusiastically as soon as she could see me coming down the walk from the parking lot. I would come in the back door, reach down and pet her fuzzy little head and recite the following:
(singing)
Daddy's home... Daddy's home...
(talking)
Home to his cat.
And if he didn't have a cat, he wouldn't even have to come home.
But he does.So he comes right home to his little cat.
Because...she's the best cat in the whole wide world.
And he loves her!

Rants: Day Six of The Dread


We are now watching the rapid dismantling of all those things the small measure of human decency that has been available in this superficial and vulgar consumer society had allowed to be enacted over the past 50 years. 

But we still have Netflix and pizza--so no biggie.

Reflections: On the New American Decadence


In a time when the casual use of the most vulgar language by school girls has become the norm, the ascendancy of a Trump is to be expected.

Trump is the Uber-Stereotype; the Ugly American finally evolved to full power.
