What is on my mind? Besides the anti-social bald wretchedness of the Republican Congress, I think about this quote a lot:
"At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is...
and there is only the dance."
I think about Puccini, Chopin, Copeland-- and actually, Buckethead.
I could go on for awhile, but just a bit more. Here are some words from my plate to yours: William James, Dostoevsky, Dada, Baby Driver, Eminem, Godard, Elizabeth Warren, cioppino, Lucien Freud, Breugel, animal friends,"bathed in light," and we will end with Occam's Razor.
Last item: I am in my 60's. I live in both Bakersfield, CA (where I teach), and in San Diego. I am outside--in many senses-- whenever possible.
Please say hello! I will pour virtual coffee.
