“No matter the state of the world,
or how dark the shadow that has fallen on our city,
I find it curiously comforting to know
that if you plant a seed and give it sunlight and water,

it will grow.”

Afar into the land of Nod

The Land of Nod

BY ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON

(internet image)

From breakfast on through all the day

At home among my friends I stay,

But every night I go abroad

Afar into the land of Nod.

All by myself I have to go,

With none to tell me what to do —

All alone beside the streams

And up the mountain-sides of dreams.

The strangest things are there for me,

Both things to eat and things to see,

And many frightening sights abroad

Till morning in the land of Nod.

Try as I like to find the way,

I never can get back by day,

Nor can remember plain and clear

The curious music that I hear.

Stevenson was born in Scotland in 1850 and dies in Samoa in 1894. I think, for at least the month of June I might try to focus on American authors, short stories or poems. It’s just a thought for now…

hope you have a great day!

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap
but by the seeds you plant.

Marriages in the nude

In colonial New England, there were many instances of women getting married in the nude or in their underwear. According to an old English tradition, if a woman married “in her shift on the king’s highway”, her husband would not be responsible for her prenuptial debts. To preserve decency, these marriages were performed at night. – but not always. There were some couples that found they could comply with tradition and still be discreet during daylight hours. In one case, one couple got married while the woman stood in the closet, with only her hand showing. ~ One night stands in American history

Never be afraid to raise your voice
for honesty, truth and compassion
Against lying, injustice and greed
If people all over the world would do this
it would change the earth

my thoughts for today

I ended up not going to the rally today.

these are huge purple lilies – I believe they are called Grapes of Wrath Lilies – they just opened yesterday

It was so hot and humid here today that I decided to stay home. I wasn’t feeling good anyway and didn’t want to end up getting sick up there. My house mate said he didn’t care if I got sick, but I didn’t want to put myself in that situation. It does look like there is a nice breeze, but I still didn’t want to take the chance.

It’s storming at the moment here, which is really no big deal, really, and I’m watching the rally on YouTube (Oreo Express if you want to watch…it is live, just so you know, so you might need to refresh it later). My housemate did go, I told him to. He’s contemplating going to DC with them on Monday. What’s holding him back is he doesn’t want to put himself in a situation where he gets arrested. Santa has been saying that whatever they’re doing, they could get arrested and cars/vehicles could be impounded. I can’t tell you what they’re doing, they’re holding their cards close to their chest. And I don’t blame them…never let the enemy know what you’re doing, right?

Santa’s original plan was to go into DC, but with it being a holiday weekend, those plans were thwarted. Roads are closed, for one thing, but as far as I know it’s not going to be just a one-day thing. So, it’s still possible that he goes. It’s also possible they do end up in DC at some point. It’s just not a good idea for me to go.

There is another rally tomorrow, but it’s dab smack in the middle of the day. As opposed to today, which is 4pm-8pm.

At this point, we’ll just have to see how things go. Which has been the story of my life for it seems like forever. Whatever happens, it is in God’s hands!

Albert Einstein warned in 1949 that the time would come when the very rich so controlled the means of communication that it would be almost impossible for ordinary people to make informed decisions; and so democracy would be broken.
