Jane and I continue to work to refine what we are trying to say in this book and how we say it. It is so true that the intial outpouring is easy and fun,and this part, too, is fun, and it is at a different level. It is a puzzle we are trying to put together and these last pieces continue to be puzzling and illusive.
It seems there is a "rogue" seal on the Sonoma coast. It even attacked a pit bull. Its name is "Nibbles," which is an ironic name for a seal who has now killed a dozen seals and bit a surfer. Somehow it all seems funny and yet I suppose it is important to be aware that Nibbles might choose you or me for a snack. I still have to laugh at the headline though, "Beware the rogue seal."
I put this here because Steve recently checked out what we spend on weapons in this country and what our allies spend, and then, there is the piddly little amount that our enemies in the "Axis of Evil" have to spend. It, too, seems like a joke, except it is real.
I think of these words about something most people seem to know, but then there is Bush who still supports and thinks Gonzales is doing a great job. It is hard to fathom, and I need to let it go, cuz I don't want to be tied to Bush or giving him power. May we all celebrate a beautiful day, despite the absurdity, at times, of it all.
"When you fight something, you’re tied to it forever. As long as you’re fighting it, you’re giving it power."
