Neeee-HAWWWW!

Video

I grew up in a small town where, if one did not have a horse….well…everyone DID have horses, so that’s a moot point. I spent many, many hours during my childhood and teen years barrel racing, both for fun and in competitions on Friday nights at the “Play Day” rodeo practice in a nearby town. Bet I could still do it today if I had a horse. I miss it! Anyway….my friend, Tommy just sent me this video. Said he thought of me. Ha. ha.

Thanks, Mr. W! ūüôā

Dark Chocolate and Heart Health – Avoid the milk!

Video

This topic interests me greatly, since my husband has a heart condition. Each year, Dr. Michael Greger does a search of the latest empirical research on nutrition and presents these facts in a series of videos on his website: nutritionfacts.org. His qualifications as an expert on nutrition are unsurpassed. He is a widely respected authority who bases his findings on valid, reliable science rather than bruhaha. In other words, he’s not in it to make money.

Bomb those Clothes…with poetry.

Standard

 

I have long been a fan of leaving art-related items behind for others to find.¬† Poetry bombing is one of those things that really appeals to me for that reason.¬†¬† When you think about it, places and objects are alive.¬† We “will” them alive in our minds and imaginations. ¬† These things¬† tell our stories.

poetry clothing

Sewing poems in clothes as this artist does, is giving the garments a voice.¬† The act places us¬† in relation — with others, with things, with the world. This being-in-relation, is a way of perceiving, a mode of moving, a narrative of global truths designed by cultural fictions.¬† Each poem sewn into an article of clothing will travel.¬† It will effect someone else’s¬† life.¬†¬† It will matter … and cause a slight change in what would have transpired, had it not been there.¬† Sewing poems in clothes is a way of bringing poetry to everyday life just by displacing it, by removing it from a paper to integrate it and fuse it with other people’s¬† lives.

Sometimes little details are stronger when they are separated from where they are expected to be.
