Everyone was wearing red. I was wearing a red polartec sweater, the guy who hit me was in a red shirt & driving a red car. When my youngest arrived at the scene, she was wearing a red top, & when my eldest & ‘his’ wife arrived at the emergency room, they were both wearing red, as well.
It turns out, I had called 911 at 9:11p.m.
Welcome to my world. <3
Women of my generation (the daughters of the 60’s) have fought all these battles before… It’s time to renew the ranks & engage younger recruits… for the daughters of the 80’s, 90’s, and beyond.
…& the Week launches with a >bang<. Friday night I drifted off to sleep with visions of Brigid, The Green Man, and many others stepping into my vision… even a lithe woman sitting on a lotus blossom [?] —perhaps Kwan Yin— or Durga [?]. Seatbelt fastened— I’m ready for the ride…
Many many thanks to Heather for her brilliant & timely analysis— She hasn’t been wrong yet…
Last night I dreamed I was in a large elevator with many men, all wearing shades of gray. There was a bench along one wall & many of them were sitting there, shoulder to shoulder. Amid the crowd, sat Leonard Nimoy (!?) in a wheelchair, wearing dark gray pajamas. When we arrived at his floor, he was backed out of the elevator & left sitting in a hospital lobby, facing us. As the elevator door closed, somebody gave him a Vulcan salute… This REALLY pissed him off. Nimoy glared at the crowd in the elevator as the doors slowly closed.
Then I woke up.
Who is in the hospital, now?
Decorated with brightly colored wallpaper and pots of cheery flowers, Giveboxes are festive additions to Germany’s city streets. The small structures, which look like a cross between a phone booth and a gardening shed, hold community-donated items that are free for the taking, says Dougal Squires on Slow Travel Berlin. Clothing, books, shoes, blankets, bags, lamps, glassware, and cologne are examples of the useful(ish) things up for grabs.

Cupertino high school student Angela Zhang may know the cure for cancer: As a freshman, she started reading doctoral-level papers on biological engineering. By her sophomore year in high school, she managed to convince Stanford University to let her use their laboratories, and by junior year, she began doing her own research that led her to develop a recipe that boggles even her chemistry teacher.
Zhang’s recipe won her a $100,000 award at a national science competition sponsored by Siemens.
Her method of curing cancer by aiming an infrared light at mutated cells killed cancer in mice; it will be a few more years before it can be determined if the method works in humans. Nevertheless, Zhang’s three years of research is considered a breakthrough. [CBS News]
Imagine the work she’ll do when she’s finished her education.
What am I doing with my life?
