Community Cant: The necessary but flawed fantasy of what community can do

A month or so ago, someone I worked closely with died in one of those devastating ways. Several, in their social media posts, reminded people that if they are hurting to reach out to the community that cares, to call a crisis line, to do anything but what this person had done. This piece of […]

Small Movements on a Monday Morning

My cat is determined to lay her head in the crook of my elbow as I try to type. She lays on the desk between my right and left arms and between my body and the keyboard. As she purrs, Kuniko Plays Reich plays and the hum of a bit of computer equipment fills the […]

Tired but satisfied on a Tuesday night

Tonight, my dear faithful and faithless followers, will be one of the times when I write only a few words. I have drafted Daily Doses that need to be reworked and then posted, things about important social and/or political issues, but tonight but I am much too tired. I am tired but satisfied.

Meanderer’s Meditation: A resolution

Ages ago, you may remember, I declared that on Mondays I would write about movement powered by the human body, mainly my body’s movement, mainly walking and biking. Today, after a vigorous set of strength training, I walked and jogged 2 miles on the treadmill. Later, I biked to an appointment and back home (perhaps […]
