To Sleep, to Dream... of a Filibuster
Yesterday I did almost nothing...a day of my life wasted. One of many. I woke up early to make Robin's lunch and coffee but went right back to bed when she left and slept until four p.m.! This after a good seven hours the night before! Anyway I got up, had something to eat, then called my state Senators to urge them to filibuster the Alito nomination. While there's even a glimmer of life there's hope. Right?
Next I sanded down three large panels---gesso and paint to come.
Robin got home around midnight. Her boss took the training class she's been teaching out to dinner then they all went to a crappy "Blues" club with a crappy, bald, white guy doing Stevie Ray Vaughn covers --- wearing a B.B. King t-shirt! So I'm told.
What a day...
Call your senators! and remember the words of Lawrence Durrell..."we are all dying without having properly lived."
Exhibit A? Right here.
