4:43 am - Happy Thanksgiving!
One of the delights of my life has been getting up early on Thanksgiving to cook. It still is a joy. Whether today is your official Thanksgiving Day or not, may all of you have a wonderful day and much to be thankful for.

  • Fri, 19:44: Dear @mlb, why are the World Series sleeve patches so tacky this year? Shiny, stiff, and apparently glued on. What’s next, plastic bats?

10:05 am - Godot Fixes Refrigerators

Today I'm waiting for the repairman to come and tell us that our fridge (out since last Thursday) can't be fixed. Or if it can, that the part will take 3 weeks to arrive. The fridge belongs to our landlady, so we can't just go out and buy a new one.

With all the fires, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes others are enduring, living in a house with no working fridge doesn't rank high on the tragedy scale, but it's amazing how inconvenient it is. I can't even think about the vast amount of food we had to throw away, or what it will cost to replace it. But at least our neighborhood is not on fire, and we have electricity and safe drinking water.

  • Mon, 09:10: The 2017 #eclipse has started. We're watching from a parking lot in Grass Valley, CA.
  • Mon, 09:13: Overheard at the #eclipse: I'm gonna go home and get my welding hood.
  • Mon, 09:16: There's a divot in the sun and some shadows across that look like a storm. #eclipse
  • Mon, 09:44: It seems to be happening faster now -- almost certainly an optical illusion. #eclipse
  • Mon, 09:47: Overheard at the #eclipse: Holy wow!
  • Mon, 09:59: My companion just gave our spare pair of #eclipse glasses to some people who pulled up near us. All they had easy a pinhole camera.
  • Mon, 10:04: The #eclipse keeps growing. Measurably cooler and dimmer now.
  • Mon, 10:09: Incidentally, I packed my dragon t-shirt and am wearing it now. A dragon eating the sun is a traditional cause of an #eclipse.
  • Mon, 10:27: The #eclipse is waning. People have been sharing their protective glasses. The solar event makes us community.
  • Mon, 10:28: Oh, and that guy did go home for his welding shield. It projects the image of what's happening outside to the inside of the mask. #eclipse

2:12 pm - National Poetry Month: Thanks by W. S. Merwin

Thanks
BY W. S. MERWIN

Listen
with the night falling we are saying thank you
we are stopping on the bridges to bow from the railings
we are running out of the glass rooms
with our mouths full of food to look at the sky
and say thank you
we are standing by the water thanking it
standing by the windows looking out
in our directions

back from a series of hospitals back from a mugging
after funerals we are saying thank you
after the news of the dead
whether or not we knew them we are saying thank you

over telephones we are saying thank you
in doorways and in the backs of cars and in elevators
remembering wars and the police at the door
and the beatings on stairs we are saying thank you
in the banks we are saying thank you
in the faces of the officials and the rich
and of all who will never change
we go on saying thank you thank you

with the animals dying around us
taking our feelings we are saying thank you
with the forests falling faster than the minutes
of our lives we are saying thank you
with the words going out like cells of a brain
with the cities growing over us
we are saying thank you faster and faster
with nobody listening we are saying thank you
thank you we are saying and waving
dark though it is
