When You Gonna Wake Up?

This was written in 1979 by Bob Dylan. Listen to it in view of today’s problems.

From Front Page:

Maybe Bob Dylan is a prophet after all. On stage in Omaha back on Jan. 25, 1980, Dylan, in the midst of fierce controversy over having become a Christian, said, “Years ago they…said I was a prophet. I used to say, ‘No, I’m not a prophet.’ They’d say: ‘Yes you are, you’re a prophet.’ I said, ‘No, it’s not me.’ They used to say: ‘You sure are a prophet.’ They used to convince me I was a prophet. Now I come out and say Jesus Christ is the answer. They say, ‘Bob Dylan’s no prophet.’ They just can’t handle it.”

My Journey Into Gardening & Why I Garden (A Response of Sorts to MIGardener)

We started talking about gardening today, so I thought this repeat post would fit into our discussion. Jess has since moved from Arkansas to a much larger farm in South Carolina. She has a bigger and nicer greenhouse and her first real red barn, complete with cows – a long-held dream!

I love Jess. I think it is because she reminds me of my mother (also named Jessie.) I know that sounds funny, but she thinks a lot the same way my mom did. There is a wonder of nature in her heart, and she is creative – a writer, a musician, a gardener.

As my daughter once wrote about her grandmother, my mom:

Grandma used to cut fruit apart to show me the beautiful patterns inside. She watered the plants and told me to listen to them drink. She brushed the dirt off the vegetables in the garden and bit into them, telling me to taste their goodness. She sees beauty and magic everywhere. I believe she sees God all the time, in all the good and lovely things of the earth.

Is there a mystic/spiritual aspect to gardening? Yes.

Where bluebonnets grow . . .

“This is the only place on Earth bluebonnets grow, and once a year they come an’ go at this old house here by the road. And when we die, we say we’ll catch some blackbird’s wing, and we will fly away to Heaven come some sweet bluebonnet spring.”

The U.S. has grown crazy, but you already know that

We aren’t crazy, but the media and the government are.

By E. E. Cummings

in Just-
spring          when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman
whistles          far          and wee
and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it’s
when the world is puddle-wonderful
the queer
old balloonman whistles
far          and             wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing
from hop-scotch and jump-rope and
balloonMan          whistles

Is this the “smoking gun”? Will this collapse the NY DA’s case against Donald Trump?

Read and decide for yourself.

Report from The Daily Mail:

  • Bombshell document, exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com, could cripple prosecutors’ pursuit of criminal charges against Trump 
  • Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, is the star witness in the case over which Trump reportedly faces imminent arrest for campaign finance violations
  • But in a February 2018 letter Cohen’s attorney wrote that ‘Mr. Cohen used his own personal funds’ and that ‘neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign reimbursed Mr. Cohen’
