Hidden Brain: Rebel with a Cause

.

This podcast is long, but I think it's really interesting.  How rebels who want to institute positive change approach things, and how what they do matters.

Greenland proposes to buy the USA

.

Saw this in the Kos Good News comments today.  :-)

Greenland proposes to buy the USA, as the first Europeans to visit included the son of the first European to visit Greenland.  :-)

The old-fashioned day lilies are done, but the fancier ones are going strong.

day lilies at my old house

.

Day lilies I planted (in 1980 or 1981), in front of my first house.

I am grateful to the man who bought the house from me in 1985. He has let my day lilies thrive in his yard ever since.

giant leopard moth

.

Here’s the coolest thing I saw in my neighborhood yesterday.  I don’t think I’d ever seen one before.

I googled “Michigan big white moth black circles” and found out it is a giant leopard moth.  AND it comes from a woollybear caterpillar!  I’ve seen woollybears lots and lots of times, but I don’t believe I’d ever seen one of these until yesterday.

It was about 2.5-3” long, on the edge of the sidewalk in our suburban neighborhood.

No concentration camps!

.

My mother (the artist) and my father (the activist) gave me this electric candle some time ago. 

I put it out on my front stoop, in a square glass container, to protest the existence of concentration camps in our country.  They would think this is a fine use for this candle.



As I stood out in front to take this picture, I was pleased to see two other houses which were similarly illuminated.

NO CONCENTRATION CAMPS!  

NOT NOW, NOT EVER.  

NOT HERE, NOT ANYWHERE.
