Nothing Going On

Just hanging out waiting for Spring to feel like Spring. The spinach could be picked but I have not been inclined to doing so with current temps in the 30's. Warmer days ahead but with rain. Happy for rain, but not spinach picking weather either.

Meeting a high school classmate for lunch. He lives in Chicago and passes through here usually once a year. I was going to blow off our usual meet up for lunch, but my girls really pushed me to get out. Certainly I do stay home a lot.

Worked on the art journal and the sock yesterday though not simultaneously. Started a sketch, no joy in the process though. Ah passion, please come back.

Binge watched a couple of documentaries on Netflix over the weekend. First was a detailed account of the settlement of followers of Rajneesh/Osho in Oregon. Very interesting indeed. Of course I remember the news clips, but the details are fascinating. The other was about Adderal and other "performance enhancing" drugs and it rather amazed me the attitude toward their use by college students and young professionals. I cannot believe that kids who take this stuff from childhood are not going to be fucked up. Basically it's speed. Folks get all worked up about methamphetamines, but make sure their kids "take their pills", crazy, just crazy. Title = "Take Your Pills."

Sesame chicken in slow cooker.

Pooper scooper arrived yesterday, how's that for excitement?

hello! just wanted to say hi. I found you when you commented on a friend's journal, and I loved your icon so much that I couldn't not add you.

I am 31 and I have friends who are addicted to Adderal and insist that they "need" it. It's hard to have a rational conversation about substance use anyway, but especially hard when it is called medicine. I agree with you. Decades of use and sanctioned abuse can't have no side effects. "When one tries to rise above Nature one is liable to fall below it."

Hi. And nice to meet you. Glad you like the icon. I've been using it a long time.

I love the quote, so very true. So much of what is screwed up on Planet Earth is because we have turned away from what is natural.
