Lugnasa Superior Wolf Moon
Superior Wolf is ticking along, riding the interior highways. Sometime in the next couple of weeks I’ll be a third of the way done with the first draft. Reimagining is going more slowly, my daily goal of 300 words reflects the more difficult act of building an argument, rather than a world. But, it’s getting regular attention, something I’d not had for it before.
The grandkids are on a hemophilia walk this morning. I feel curmudgeonly about such things. Walking and raising money is a simulacrum of action. They seem like doing something, but in fact they leave the actual political labor necessary for real change to someone else. These walks, runs, auctions, benefits all substitute thoughtful action for the easy: walk, write a check, see friends, enjoy the weather. They are salves to the soul intimidated by the need for analysis, meetings, hard work.
Bear Creek Design got a healthy check from us yesterday. They work on retainer. You fill up an account, they go out and spend money per the estimate and when the account runs low they come back for more. Looking forward to the new shower.
Looks like I may be in Minnesota near the end of next month, probably the 22nd through the 25th. Joseph and Seoah plan to be there then for a Twin Cities event celebrating their marriage. Raeone is hosting. It’s a little iffy since Joseph’s schedule is under control of the USAF, but right now its on. I haven’t seen Joseph and Seoah since Korea. Woolly friends and docent friends I haven’t seen in a longer time. Kate may have to stay here for the grandkids.
