It’s Friday and I’m gay. Five hours on the webcam with a former college friend, straight to Friday’s Fave Five, it’s a beautiful life oh oh ooo! (if I may borrow Ace of Base’s proclamation)
1. Researching Hazel. Although I’m aware of many Hazel disambiguations, there are only three things I‘m sure about the name: Hazel nut, Hazel tree and Witch Hazel. Launching a new blog that will house my daydreams sent my curiosity scouring the net for more. I enjoyed what I found and learned.
4. Starbucks hot chocolate and shitake cheese bruschetta worked well on a cold, rainy afternoon. The rains are connected to the talk of possible flooding. I set the worry aside and read financial news. A Bloomberg columnist observes, “we’re past the time when a handful of rich, largely western economies could call the shots for the rest.” “I know,” I mentally nodded. The hot choc tasted good.
5. Wes Bentley reciting The Conqueror Worm. He sounded gorgeous. I wish it was done similarly during American Literature class. It’s way better than poem animation. Once again I had my fix of beautiful language, “… A play of hopes and fears, while the orchestra breathes fitfully the music of the spheres..” Not a bad way to be reminded of man’s mortality.
