strong female lawyer

We are watching FEARLESS on Amazon Prime. It's British, it's quite
wonderful and don't we all need to escape? One can sink one's teeth
into this series, trust me here. Emma is the hero in every sense of the word.

hooray ~ a new mystery!

IQ ~ the initials of a young black man in L.A. who is brilliant and who
solves crimes that don't really interest the police because of their
"who-cares-about-the-ghetto?" philosophy. This is fresh and fun and a
wonderful escape from the perils of the holidaze.

a wonderful week indeed

Because I use this blog as a reference tool, I will share my happiness
here ~ thank you, dear friends. Today to the gym and normal food:

  • Sunday ~ Zuni brunch with Pamela and Joe (and walk to Stuff)
  • Monday ~ lunch with Steve Olian at Noeteca
  • Tuesday ~ Farina on Valencia for luscious lunch with Doug and Barb
  • Wednesday ~ dinner with Husbando at Chez Marius (escargot!)
  • Thursday ~ lunch with Ginger at Kokkari
Lucky me.

poetry break

A Glass of Water

I pour a glass of water for myself.
I watch what greys it gathers from the room.
It's not to drink. I want the wanting of
a glass and water sleep can come between.
The glass of water sits there half the year.
Its level drops. Its bubbles bloom and burst.
I get the glass of water's hardly you,
and still I rise to mouthing arid toasts:
to hunger, thirst; to bliss that goes without;
to love abstained, the lull until the flood;
to near enough to touch it hurts, and not;
all windblown wishes, thistles in a field.
I tilt the glass of water to my lips.
I hold like this, before the wanting stops.

busy week with time for...

After our Sunday lunch we walked from Zuni to Valencia Street to
checkout the strange and wonderful Stuff store. Two floors of used
items, all for sale. It's a treasure trove and always a lot of fun. (On
Friday I will recap this Foodie Festival birthday week and other stuff.)

the new canine (K-9)

This is the new security guard at the SPCA. I believe it is a giant
camera, but I'm not sure. Yesterday a man walking by thought that I
was controlling K-9 with my iPhone. It's huge and heavy, but I
still think it might end up in the back of a pick-up truck. It probably
goes inside at night, freaking out the dogs and cats as he rolls by.

every religion...

...has its conservatives. Not to judge, but they are always the worst ~ even
our own Christian evangelicals. When we were in NYC I was fascinated
by the Hasidic Jews ~ long black coats on the hottest days. Women always
with strollers filled with babies. One of Us is a Flix® documentary about
several Jews who are trying to leave the Community. There are way more
Hasidics than I knew and they stay strong by subjugating women and
educating their young to avoid people on the outside and never, ever
use the internet. This movie left many questions, but answered a few.
Yes, recommended.
