The weather today was really nice. I just had to say Huzzah for the end of the heat wave.

I will be away with my family July 6-17, visiting relatives. I will have little or no Internet access while i’m gone. Try not to miss me too much. Some sort of summary entry will follow my return home, but i am hoping for a boring vacation. I literally have a duffel bag full of zines, and a few books (Christopher Durang: 27 Short Plays -- athene, after i finish this book i think i will have read all of his published plays -- and Traveling Mercies by Ann Lamott -- thanks to sk8eeyore for the recommendation). I want us to read LOTR (starting with The Hobbit) in the car ride. (My mom has read aloud on the car ride on vacations for years. We got through Harry Potter Books 2-4, Douglas Adams’ The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide, and Asimov’s Foundation that way.)

Anyway, hopefully i’ll be all rested and re-energized when i get home. I’m working on mix CDs for some of my friends. Most of them are what i call “starter” mixes, intended to expose people to artists i love. I do starter mixes of Christine Lavin, Greg Greenway, Bif Naked, Indigo Girls, Catie Curtis, and Ani DiFranco. If you want any, leave a comment or drop me an e-mail, and i’ll get to it when i get home.

Oh, and Happy Birthday stumbledhere.

“there is always something to do. there are hungry people to feed, naked people to clothe, sick people to comfort and make well. and while i don’t expect you to save the world i do think that it’s not asking too much for you to love those with whom you sleep, share the happiness of those whom you call your friends, encourage those among you who are visionary and remove from your life those who offer you depression, despair, and disrespect.”

  • Congrats, team; we survived 2016.

    (Well, depending on what time zone you're in, you maybe have a little more time, but I believe in you.) As people have pointed out, 2017 will likely…
