I really like the Sundance channel’s ‘Rectify’, but I had no idea the final season started about five weeks ago, so I’ve been playing catchup. In a way, it’s more fun being able to binge-watch.
Yesterday was the first day in about a month I haven’t coughed up any phlegm, and it was about the first time in a month I felt well enough to work out again.
I’ll often look in the mirror and stare at myself for minutes at a time. It’s never planned, it just kinda happens after washing my hands or shaving. Usually, the focus is on my eyes, wondering if I’m doing the best I can do at what I think is my life’s purpose – identify and fill needs of those around me. I’ll also wonder if I’m pushing myself hard enough to try to better myself, that I’m doing more than being complacent. I’ll then hit a few tangents in regards to relationships, health, legacy, self-worth, regret, embarrassment, or how I have intentionally hurt someone. In my selfish rant about vanity, it’s grace that matter to me most. As Bono and the Boys have often said, “Because grace makes beauty Out of ugly things.”
I had no idea Gwen Ifill was in hospice, much less sick, her death was a surprise.
Outgoing presidents tend to have an uptick in approval ratings before leaving office, but I have a feeling Obama’s will have a more than normal bounce.
It seems inevitable that someone in any presidential administration will get in some sort of trouble or cause embarrassment. If Sid Miller became the next Secretary of Agriculture, I’m certain it will be him. But I’m really surprised that Rick Perry wasn’t considered or first mentioned, he did serve as our state’s ag commissioner for eight years.
As an owner of an electric car, I think this is a good thing. The number of times a pedestrian doesn’t have any idea I’m in close proximity to them is scary. Our car makes the traditional beeping sound you’d hear when big machinery is moving, but you don’t hear anything when driving at low speeds.
