Had a vivid dream last night. I was very happy to be working as a job site supervisor. For awhile I was working with a kindergarten teacher who was using an obsolete computer program. After talking for awhile over coffee (mine had a half inch of sand at the bottom of the cup) I agreed to work on a solution during my free time so the authorities would not see that the teacher was being helped.

The next seen had me out in a parking lot. Large trucks, medium sized trucks, small trucks, cars, carts, wheel barrows, and people holding boxes were lined up, waiting to be processed.

They all had collections of excuses, complaints and requests for deferrals. Some were on colored paper. Written notes, typed notes, and old newspaper articles were all spread out over large tables. Once in a while the processers would glance up at the supervisor (me) and give a knowing glance as they filed the complaints. We would roll our eyes knowingly as the more experienced processors quickly filed the statements on similar stacks.

Revolt of the Masses

I have coasted along this first year of retirement, content with TV re-runs and doing whatever pleases me.
With all the violence and dirty politics in our lives today, I am guilty of watching a train wreck without any effort on my part to make anything better.
Months ago I stopped reading a book because it came very close to an explanation of how/why our society has become so disordered.
I stopped reading it because it started to make me feel reactionary.  All I could see was a lot of work.
I picked the book back up this morning, re-reading chapter 7 and 8 again.
Shit, man.

Friday morning

As one could notice, there have been changes to the site. I have started blogging just now.

This means, by rule, that something must go out at least 0nce a week.

In the case of an event needing people to show up in large numbers, look for “activist” on the category pick list.
