  • I’m almost done reading The Wings of the Dove. I don’t like the book but I agreed to read it with a friend for our online summer novel discussion. I’m just glad to be finished with this onerous task.

  • I’ve been learning to use Adobe Illustrator and PhotoShop. While you can fiddle around with them and get some good effects, I’m amazed by all things you can do with these programs. (The problem is they’re so expensive and I don’t need them for work so I have to practice at the library.) I highly recommend Lynda.com’s course Illustrator for Non-Illustrators.
  • We had a nice neighborhood cocktail night, as always on Mondays. Down the road, one woman always hosts a BYOB and appetizers evening on her patio. It’s a simple way to promote community.
  • Positive News: Here’s something I learned last week from reading When by Dan Pink. Singing in a group like a choir has similar health benefits to exercise. It’ll lower your blood pressure, improve cardio health, increased sense of well-being and it helps children learn to read. You can read more here.
  • Wisdom: We live in a rainbow of chaos. Paul Cezanne.

  • My niece has been visiting from Connecticut so I’m learning about teen culture.

  • Work is going well in a general way. No big milestones to report.
  • Good News: Scientists have made a small-molecule drug that has helped paralyzed mice walk again. Check that out here.

  • The summer reunions continue. On Saturday I had lunch with a friend I probably see just three times a year, though I wish our schedules allowed for more. Yuki’s a professor and just returned from Japan where she worked on a project interviewing victims of the Fukashima. As you’d imagine we had a fascinating talk. Then my friend Theresa’s in town from Georgia. We went to high school together. Theresa’s a smart and very fair woman able to bring new insights to any discussion. I also like how she sticks up for the ideas louder voices try to drown out.
    After meeting for church Theresa and I had lunch with another high school friend and her fiancé . So  I got to meet him for the first time.
  • I had a good week at work that included a shift on the bookmobile, a wonderful outreach. I was impressed by how well rounded the smaller collection on the bus was so that there really was something for everyone. We stopped at the park, an apartment complex and three senior living centers before noon.
  • I went to a good play at the Goodman Theater. Starring Stacy Keach, Pamplona was about Ernest Hemingway’s life.
  • We’ve had some delightful summer weather. Even Saturday’s rain was welcome and didn’t interfere.

  • I’m thoroughly enjoying my work at the library as an instructional designer. Each day the course I’m working on gets in better shape and it’s almost finished.
  • I’ve seen a couple jobs for down the road that I’ve applied to and they seem like good moves – more on that should things move ahead. You just never know.
  • I connected a friend to a job that’s increased his income by y $20,000. (Yeah, I do wish I could do the same for myself.)
  • Over the weekend, I got to meet up with two friends I rarely see.
  • We’ve had what I consider perfect weather for the summer sun and temps in the 70s F.
  • Six of the 12 kids trapped in the cave in Thailand have been rescued!

  • Yesterday I attended my brother Bill’s retirement party after 32 years of service in the Army Reserves. I knew of his dedication and courage in his deployments – 2 to Iraq and 1 to Bahrain. I knew he earned a Bronze Star and when not deployed he was dedicated to providing the utmost service to his duties for the Reserves both here and overseas in Thailand and Australia.

    But attending the party and meeting his fellow Reservist Mark and seeing his son who’s now in the Army emcee a ceremony to honor Lt. Col. William Kelly, deepened my respect for Bill. There’s so much our military does in quiet service that we’re unaware of.

    What’s more it was great how everyone honored and Bill thanked my sister-in-law, their kids and all the friends and family supported them. We need more self-less heroes like. Bill from these parts. The military has very few people who live in this area in its ranks.
