little time yesterday to rip lots of mint out of the garden ...
one of the most invasive critters i've ever seen ... i like how
my hands get all stained & minty for days after no matter how
hard i scrub ...
& even the
most ravenous translucent deer miss a few tulips ... now & then
... here's a peek at one of the survivors up close ...

... prom night ... we had half a school day with dismissal at
noon ... twenty minute classes ... i began endgame
the seniors (provoking more laughter in some classes than it ever
has before) (maybe they're still a bit slaphappy from the three-hour
exam yesterday) (maybe clov's first line just hits their moment
perfectly: Finished, it's finished, nearly finished, it must
be nearly finished.
) ... sophs continued their fishbowl discussions
of paired poems ... they do it well .. so it's prom night & i
don't gots to go ... that's a good thing ... time was i'd enjoy
it ... but the night gets long ... geezerish ... for sure ...
better a quiet night with a book and a cat

...Life is this simple: We are
living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the Divine
is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story
or fable. It is true.

out for a
today ... and it looks really good & is very usable
... until i view it on my home computer ... wherein it looks like
crap (to steal an adage from a sophomore) ... o well ... what
do i need another blog for anyway?
i was hoping it would be handy to convert this blug to at some
point ... some day
