Beyond Thought --- Day 5/155

Walk: Sundance Kabuki (Star Trek Beyond)
Distance: 2 miles, very small yoga

Ciwt found it was a good day today to space out.  And Star Trek Beyond was the perfect place to do it.  Non-stop action, dazzling visuals, virtually incomprehensible, no thinking necessary.

From Ruth Asawa Website: For many Japanese Americans, the upheaval of losing everything, most importantly their right to freedom and a private, family life, caused irreparable harm. For Ruth, the internment was the first step on a journey to a world of art that profoundly changed who she was and what she thought was possible in life. In 1994, when she was 68 years old, she reflected on the experience:
“I hold no hostilities for what happened; I blame no one. Sometimes good comes through adversity. I would not be who I am today had it not been for the Internment, and I like who I am.”

'Criminally Cute' --- Day 5/150

Walk:  No, waiting for tech.  Ciwt must have written date wrong.  Oh well; tech practice on own
Distance: 0, Home Yoga

Now we begin avoiding TV for convention week, and what a darling way to start:

This little family was seen recently near the visitor's center of our incredible Point Reyes National Seashore.  The awestruck photographer described his reaction: “I pulled in a little after 7 a.m. and saw a fox sitting by the side of the road,” wrote field scout David Assman, a frequent contributor and photographer. “I pulled over and rolled down my window to take pictures. After about three minutes, two kits came out of the bushes and started playing with each other on the road. This is the kind of thing that even after you see it and review your photos, you still can’t believe it."

Ciwt can't improve on one Chron commentator: Those foxes are criminally cute.

Eye to the Sun --- Day 5/149

Walk: No
Distance: 0, Long Home Yoga

Image result for living well

Just now around here we learn a lovely, handsome, brilliant, strapping and beloved Berkeley student has been confirmed a victim of the Nice rampage.

CIWT tries not to be political or ripped from the headlines, but these days it is exceedingly difficult. So much sadness.  Guess, realistically all we can the living can do, is be even more appreciative of our gifts of life.
