Spontaneous picnics are good for the soul.

Feels like a vacation! I’m going to take my rock and roll rental car and drive around the island before I pick up my CBC fixated auto from its repairs.

Something doesn’t add up here… According to a recent edition of Fortune Magazine, President Obama will end a 26-year-old offshore
drilling moratorium in Hawaii, estimating there are 8 billion barrels of oil in Hawaiian waters… (At the current rate of consumption that is enough oil to last the US about 400 days). But… they will sink money into exploration, they will build the
“necessary infrastructure” – pipelines and refineries – nearby. It will take about 5 years to get things up and running. (For one year’s worth of oil??)

And if the recent BP oil spill concerns you – don’t worry! “No blowout disaster is likely in Hawaii” the report states. “The prevailing trade-winds would simply blow any spill out into the Western Pacific.” (Where it will join the Great Pacific garbage patch?!?)

12 hours of email later…. I need a secretary and a neck massage! (A secretary who gives neck massages???)

Woodpecker, owl, circles and stories and I am fed by things I did not know I hungered for – faerie stones and memories of mom…

Stars are out, frogs are singing and the air is sweet with the scent of cut grass. Time to sink into the beauty of what is and put my petty grievances to bed.

Spontaneous outpouring of gratitude… Bending to stoke my fire, food on the stove…. So many have so little. I am blessed.

If email were an ecological hazard I’d be a major polluter… but my 24 hour “follow-through” marathon has yielded some results!

Is it groveling or persistence when you resend unanswered messages to radio, reviewers, venues etc you have sent your Cd to? Enough of firing things off into the void. Tomorrow I will use the phone!

Was going to stack wood but the rain means I get to stay inside and listen to a CBC interview my very funny childhood friend & author Michael McKinley.
