2. Watching a hummingbird check out a pink plastic ball in our yard yesterday reminded me of the time a goat tried to eat my floral print dress.
3. I look pretty normal but am still right arm disabled, which is why I had my friend Jayn cut an onion for me when she was here helping me put the Museletter (our community’s cut and paste newsletter) together and had Joe pre-cut all my morning bagels.
4. Last night I dreamed that I was fixing ham sandwiches for my boys when they were young and there was a guy who wore a wig but didn’t need it because his hair was the same under the wig.
5. Could this be the reason why the long haired Native Americans were excellent trackers, why the Red Sox won the World Series for the first time in 80 years after most of the players grew their hair long, and why Sampson lost his power after his hair was cut: Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved \’feelers\’ or \’antennae\’ that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brainstem, the limbic system, and the neocortex. Not only does hair in people, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain, hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. More on that and why the government reportedly studied the benefits of long hair from The Truth About Hair and why Native/Indians would keep their hair long HERE.
6. Did you know that at least 1,500 American architects and engineers dispute the official explanation that the 47 floor World Trade Center building 7, which was not hit by a plane, collapsed due to fires fueled by office furnishings and believe it was a planned demolition?
7. “If one looks at 9/11 as a demonstration of the worst of humanity in action – as terrorism is and as any mass murder is – the way human beings responded in the moments of it happening and in the aftermath is really a demonstration of the best of humanity.” ~ Alice Greenwald, director of the 911 museum.
8. Daybreak: a humpty dumpty morning.
9. I saw the original musical Hair in Boston in 1968. It was great but confusing because it was at the peak of the 60’s flower child era in Boston and I thought the cast members were just a bunch of hip peers when they came out in the audience to mingle as part of the play. Apparently, the remake didn’t live up to the original, as this review demonstrates: “I just watched “Hair” and I can’t do a thing with it. It’s like sitting in the middle of a giant commercial for, oh, Gap Tie-Dye or McPot.”
10. The highlight of last week was when Joe and I pulled over while driving home from town to watch a distant lightening storm at night against a mountain view on the hill at Stokers Knob with the smell of sweet grass and nearby garden flowers wafting in the air and the chirp of summer insects in the background.
11. My 3 year old grandson Bryce likes the book about insects that I brought him from the library, but he doesn’t like me to be the only one reporting the names of the bugs, so he makes up some strange names for many of them and informs me what they are. I don’t correct him.
12. This week I’m looking forward to photographing Ilima Ursomarso’s dance company’s fire dance performance at the intermission at of Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann’s new band at Dogtown’s Sun Hall.
13. Play your own music HERE. It’s fun!
