This is from my friend Trinity's blog:
Today I am wrapped in a quilt made for me by mi abuelita, and watching the snow fall beyond the window. It's cold and pretty outside, warm and cozy inside. My dog, Mango, is curled beside me and I'm pretty sure that he had a lap of my hot chocolate while I wasn't looking.
My thoughts are on the future. There are things

In an earlier post, I predicted the possible comedy or tragedy in the upcoming Democratic convention in Denver, but it turns out the real comedy and tragedy was being saved up for the Republicans in St. Paul.
I know Republicans have fewer delegates, but even so you would think more party faithful would show up. The Democratic

Here's the Palin family just after the news of Bristol's pregnancy was released — a photo from the New York Times.
What's fascinating in this picture is the McCains, Cindy and Meghan. They look as angry as someone would be when put in an unexpectedly bad position by an embarrassing revelation. Cindy: frozen hard. Meghan: a glare.
Politics makes strange

If Bush could speak articulately, his response to this vague question would have been

Your friend is your needs answered.
He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.
And he is your board and your fireside.
For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.
When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the "nay" in your own mind, nor do you

Just for today
I let go of anger,
knowing I can gently express my inner needs
I let go of worry,
choosing to trust that I have been heard
I am deeply thankful,
to a kind and benevolent universe
I am focused on my work
in creative & productive ways
I am kind and loving,
to myself and all beings.

Former supervisor, playwright, veteran, supporter of good causes, and Santa Cruz's best barkeep Chris Matthews died over the weekend, and we will all miss him. I've been reading the kind and generous tributes to Chris which follow the Sentinel article and I notice a lot of them come from across the country. His influence was far and wide.

Chris Matthews, publican of the beloved local institution Poet and Patriot, died Saturday at the age of 61.
Don't know a lot about him, save that he's friendly and surronded by friends whenever I see him at the Poet, and in the Poet, he has created a special environment for working stiffs, students, dart players, card players, colorful characters, and, not

we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.

For that reason, I offer a copy of an addition I made to my 'Advanced Directive' below. (You can obtain an Advanced Directive form from a local hospital or your primary care physician.)
As one who lives with a chronic,
