That said, it’s still pretty fun. And while many small games of come and gone from my phone, this game has remained. And that feels worth mentioning. Even after all this time, it’s still one of my go-to games that I thoroughly enjoy.
After our visit from the fireplace guy yesterday (which involved opening up and investigating the long-dormant living room chimney), Liz spotted this guy on the floor post-cleanup.
Interesting detail: the imprint on the back says “United States Encaustic Tile Company, Indianapolis, Indiana.”
Ok, “calm” may not be the exact best word here. Less stresed? Less frantic? There were deadlines at work, and I think the rush at the end of the week got to me… but I didn’t have that gnawing feeling in my gut, and that whispering voice my head saying “you’re running behind, you’re running behind” repetedly.
“I have never held a hand so soft and sacred
When I hear you laugh, I know heaven’s key
And when I grow to be a poppy in the graveyard
I will send you all my love upon the breeze”
“At the national cemetery in Gettysburg
all the trees have names,
both family and genus…”
In grad school, I had to take a course outside of my field of study (I was getting an MFA in Creative Writing/Poetry). The one I picked was “Technology in Greek and Roman Civilization,” and I really wish I could still track down my notes/files from that course.
I started playing The Last of Us Part II, and happened across this moment while searching an old building. It’s a very old Playstation 3, and alongside it…
D’Amato’s song is a breath of fresh air, and a lovely positive note in a time that seems dominated by dark clouds. It will be some time, I think, before I feel great again. But hearing this song makes me feel just a little bit better.
The video quality is poor, but this was the best version I could find of the song (from the filmed 2015 version). It’s my first time hearing Hamilton, and this song in particular just… really got stuck in my head.
Unfortunately, the fix I had only works part of the time, but the fans were still running pretty constantly. This was bugging me more and more, so I ended up biting the bullet and opted to wipe my machine, re-install Catalina and work from a time machine backup.
We’ve seen him a few times now, attracted I suspect by the clover and some of the berries growing nearby. I sometimes see him in the late morning, and late evening, wandering around. I also think I’ve seen a larger bunny, with a similar look (possibly a parent) also in the yard. Though I’ve never seen more than one bunny at a time back here.
