Although this has been dubbed the “rainey season” it is hardly that. Our thirsty plants yearn for more than the little they get. Remember their thirst when engaging in any extravagant water use. We need to share the little we receive. Today it rained a small amount. The plant world put it’s hands in the air. I wonder why the media considers hot, cloudless, days to be beautiful?
The repetition in the public media pounds on one’s head. After hearing a statement it is repeated ad nauseam. This has entered our culture and we are subjected to redundancy throughout our lives. If speech were short, sweet, truthful, and compassionate our lives would be improved. As we speak to each other let the principles of kindness, brevity, and truth prevail. Mutual respect brings happiness.
Big E’s is a one of a kind coffee, tea, and assorted goody shop. It’s inhabited by high intellect people from the Ringling College of Art, New College, U.S.F. and assorted figures of note from all walks of life. You can get into mighty important discussions here and also relax and “flemmarder” (do nothing). It’s across from the big old Burger King on the North Trail and also across from Ringling College. You can walk to the bay down Virginia Drive. Eric, the owner, is a compassionate being who really likes everyone and leaves people to their machinations. There are usually paintings from Ringling students on the walls. There is free wi-fi and you can never tell whom you might run into. It’s the “funnest” coffee shop in Sarasota and operates in a true Bohemian manner.
