Tolle at Google

I've been listening to this in segments. My favorite part thus far is minutes 27-38 where Tolle talks about technology. I recommend it.

I've thought my gratitudes were really devoid of beautiful photos for a while. Today I am grateful to change that by starting to post some photos from my recent camping trip. Looking at these photos it is clear how much beauty I absorbed, and how healthy that must be. The Lake Pepin sign picture isn't beautiful, but I am including it because of how encouraging the last line was to me.

Oake on the Water

I biked 37 miles (total) to Excelsior today!

Almost the entire way, especially the way there (I did a loop), was flat bike paths.

Tristan Prettyman inspired this as she was playing there for free at Oake on the Water through Cities 97.

I didn't have a tired or complaining thought the entire way, aided by the cool/warm weather and low humidity.

I didn't know I could do that.

This post got lost..now found

#1 - I was briefly researching my primary ballot today - the judges mostly - that I knew nothing about.

#2 - Alan Nelson - running for the MN supreme court - "The public has an expectation that all government services and laws will be applied in an equal and fair manner. Unless it can be proven that same-sex marriages are harmful (I have yet to see any evidence to support this), then the government must issue marriage certificates in an equal and fair manner to the public."

#4 - Learning that my neighbor and her family (with young children) lived in Oman for a year.

#5 - That my brother and sister-in-law have few toys for their child, but none of us notice (child included) because there is more than enough.
