G'morning, Coffee

Happy Monday!

There's something gone right with the world when a sweet young thing (that works at the  $tarbuck$ in the tunnel beneath One Big Clam Plaza) waves at you and smiles real big and says, "Happy Monday!"

She's half my age (at least!)...I don't care! But I ain't kidding myself either. 

She still made my day! Or at least my morning!

Gonna have to go for a coffee!

Daily Zen

Make no mistake about it; if you do not find it now, you will repeat the same routines for myriad eons, a thousand times over again, following and picking up on objects that attract you. We are no different from Shakyamuni Buddha. Today, in your various activities, what do you lack? The spiritual light coursing through your six senses has never been interrupted. If you can see in this way, you will simply be free of burdens all your life.

- Lin Chi (d 867?)

Has Anyone (or everyone) Been Following

The Holmes Comet. I think this is a fascinating phenomenon. I find it hard to believe that none of y’all have posted about it. The Astronomy Picture of the Day shows amazing detail. Kind of (once again) makes me wonder at the power of the universe, and what an insignificant dot of matter we are propelled through space on...

Unfortunately I have not been able to observe it, as it has been too frickin’ cloudy as of late. Still I keep hoping...


Where has Wondrous Wednesday been? sahlah should have been all over this...

Now This is Just a Little Weird

Art collective Henry VIII’s Wives restaged historic photographs with elderly volunteers as the models. All of the models in the series, titled “Iconic Moments of the Twentieth Century,” live in a home for the elderly in Glasgow. From the Henry VIII’s Wives site:
A group of aged volunteers pose in their everyday outfits and in their daily environment (the vicinity of the Home) to re-enact the scenes from well-known newspaper photographs taken from history books and encyclopaedias. The images in question depict ‘historical moments’ that took place in their lifetime: Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin at the Yalta Conference during the World War II, the Napalm Attack and the killing a Vietcong from the Vietnam War, or the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald, which was depicted live on a TV programme. Each of these images represents an immediately recognisable cultural leitmotif of its époque, the representation that overshadows the event it documents.
