It’s a bit gloomy here. The rest of the town appears to be missing.
I mentioned to some friends today that this morning’s training on the Kaw was one of those glorious moments you receive as a reward for your commitment to the rowing life. Not a victory celebration necessarily, but a sublime moment … the rest “Oars, Outboards, and Early Mornings”
This morning the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine held the 2020 Body Donation Memorial Service for people who donated their bodies for research at UC.
I watched the ceremony live online and saw my mother June’s picture pass by … the rest “2020 University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Body Donation Ceremony”
I awoke this morning at 4 a.m. in my new apartment in Lawrence, KS. I guess it’s official now. Or is it official when everything I own isn’t randomly spread about on the floor?
Looking forward to great new experiences in #LFK.
From Scott Blitstein:
Again, the ineptitude of our administration to do even the least amount of work to manage this crisis is causing hundreds of thousands of lost lives.
This morning’s breakfast was special so I’ll share how I prepared it.
Leave two bunches of spinach in the the refrigerator for..a long time.
Pick out all the nasty bits of spoiled spinach, leaving slightly less than … the rest “Waste Not, Want Not”
I must admit I’ve been a little smug about how I’ve managed to keep my apartment ant-free since I moved in.
That’s over now.
War is upon me, but I’ve trained for this.
Enjoying another amazing food share from my friend Will Leathem. The man can cook it up!

I haven’t … the rest “Just Be Back By Sundown”
I just had a wonderful phone conversation with a friend from back in my New Jersey youth. Someone I haven’t seen since I was about 14-15 years old. It was the easiest thing in the world. Friends online now friends again in the direct sense. Reach out.
For folks who live where fireworks are illegal, it might be hard to convey the absolute insanity that went down in my neighborhood last night. (If, after hearing me describe it, you feel it was worse in your neighborhood, congrats.)… the rest “Boom”
They may be sorry they had me over as there wasn’t much food left by the time I got through eating. Left with cookies and homemade apple pie under my arm.
I have such generous friends.
Is this roadkill connoisseur following me?
I’m not saying it’s a sign, but it might be best if I avoid standing still or lying down today.
On my evening walk, two boys approached me from behind on their bikes. One of the chains slipped and the pedal hit the boy in the leg.
I said, “Are you ok?”
He said, “Yeah.”
After a while, two young … the rest “Master of the Moment”
5k walk in. Grey sky and humid, rain on it’s way.
I think the days of heat have arrived. There will be a few more cool nights maybe, but it’s time to shift over to warm brain.
Get back in here and serve your purpose human.
I can never escape the feeling that he’s always watching.
Last night, I dreamed that Hope Sandoval was at the end of the couch reading a book. When I sat down, she put her bare feet under my thigh to warm them up.
It was a really good dream, and … the rest “Graphic”
