I saw a school play last night where my daughter was the killer. Like father, like daughter!
After playing like the team everyone thinks they are for the first half of the game, the Wild finish it like the team everyone wants them to be.
It's the International Day for Tolerance, so please just ignore any spicy hot takes on the internet today.
Say the Twins are actually thinking about dropping some coin on starting pitching. If you could pick one starter (non-Otani division) to break the bank on, who would you choose?
I was driving home last night, and I thought, ooo! there's a Wolves game on tonight. Sweet!
Then I realized I was actually excited to watch it rather than just pop it in on the background. It's fun having a good team.
Thanks to a link posted by someone I follow on Micro.blog, I came across The Dark Feels Different in November, which introduced me to the concept of ma:
Ma loosely translates to negative space, to emptiness, vacancy, blankness. It is a pause, in time, space, music, conversation. “Ma makes nothingness palpable and tangible,” writes Ando. It’s a space ripe with an atmosphere of uncertainty, suspension, and possibility. The Japanese character consists of the graphic for door and for moon, suggesting “a door through the crevice of which the moonshine peeps in,” as the Swedish linguist Bernhard Karlgren defines it in his Analytic Dictionary of Chinese and Sino-Japanese. Ma is the crack that lets the light in.
The candlelight makes one better know the dark, the shadows, the spaces unseen. And the dark—the hollows and corners behind the curtains, above the rafters, the places where dimness pools—helps one better know the light.
Likewise, ma makes one aware of the presence of absence. It’s the gap where the moonlight sifts through; it’s the space between two slate stones that guide your steps along a path; it’s the hollow where ghosts gather; it’s the pause in conversation, the ripe silence of the unspoken.
It’s worth your time.
The coughing is finally dying down...a little.
To the many brave men and women who have served. We are deeply proud and humbled by your sacrifice.
Day 16 of pneumonia is today, unless I woke up without it.
Couple more days to submit to get your nominations in for the Holiday Mix. With the recent xmas song droughts, this might be the only chance to hear holiday tunes all year!
