Now that we’re done pining over a time long lost—when human being were doing great things independently, with no thought that they could actually have a whole big institution steal for them and they could call it a “system”—let’s move on. …But, I likely will have a post up tomorrow I’ll write over morning coffee to dissect an especially egregious comment from a commie on one of my last posts. If you want to get a jump on it, it’s going to be all about efficiency. And I’m going to highlight one of the most efficient operations ever. Your homework.
…In the meantime, Beatrice and I went up camping yesterday—Saratoga Springs, a mere half hour from where we live. Here’s where I sit composing this now.
Yea, we’re right next to a running creek. Nice white noise and it’s a nice comfort to sit for a while with your feet in the water.
I had to show you this, my creation on a cracker. …At Robert & Julie’s place a week ago. Tuna tartare, a wasabi sauce, and fixings.
We also attended a college graduation party and there were real tacos on hand.
This morning, we went to get some breakfast at New Amsterdam Coffee Shop in Saratoga, then took a walk through the Japanese gardens at Hakone Estate.
We’ll head back in the morning. This was so spur of moment, which is why I especially liked it. Planning fun—especially months out—always gets me down. Do you know what I mean?
I’ll leave you with Pink Floyd. Why not? Fat Old Sun, from the Atom Heart Mother album.
…I’ve always liked how it builds, but slowly, not too much…and I love the “understated” drum and guitar rhythm going from about 3 minutes in. Always makes me feel good, happy, content.
So there you go. Until tomorrow, where I’ll be making fun of commies.
