How about those Royals!

Let's check back in a month... Although I'm originally from Cleveland, I am a Kansas City fan, having lived in the area for 33 years. I'm happy with KC baseball right now, a game up over Detroit! Keep an eye on the Tribe....

Congratulations to Maryam Mirzakhani on being the first woman to win the Fields Medal prize in mathematics.

Mirzakhani, 37, is of Iranian descent and completed her PhD at Harvard in 2004. Her thesis showed how to compute the Weil-Petersson volumes of moduli spaces of bordered Riemann surfaces. Her research interests include Teichmüller theory, hyperbolic geometry, ergodic theory, and symplectic geometry. She is currently professor of mathematics at Stanford University, and predominantly works on geometric structures on surfaces and their deformations.

Finite Bees

When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see,
For all the day they view things unrespected;
But when I sleep, in dreams they look on thee,
And darkly bright are bright in dark directed.
Then thou, whose shadow shadows doth make bright,
How would thy shadow's form form happy show
To the clear day with thy much clearer light,
When to useeing eyes thy shade shines so!
How would, I say, mine eyes be blessed made
By looking on thee in the living day,
When in dead night thy fair imperfect shade
Through heavy sleep on sightless eyes doth stay!
All days are nights to see till I see thee,
And nights bright days when dreams do show thee me.

- Shakespeare, Sonnet XLIII

oddly enough,

they don't seem to mind this aging biped.

Although, anthropomorphism may be more deeply rooted
while perception is properly adjusted ;-)

new fans?...

I've got some '73 cranked right now with DS>Eyes going and I look out the front window and there's two does (deer) laying down underneath a cedar tree not 15 ft from the window with their ears pointed at the window. Honest to goodness truth. Gonna turn it up a little more for us. :)))))))))

Donna Jean...

so I'm watching Independent Lens tonight on PBS and it's about Rick Hall's Fame Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Eventually they start talking about Percy Sledge and the ever so beautiful DJG comes on in an interview and states that she got her big break when she was hired as one of the backup vocals in Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman". Never knew that and I'll probably never hear that song the same again. Didn't know she was born and raised in Florence, AL. either and apparently she's still active in the Muscle Shoals music scene. Great show.....

**How fitting, she ends up being the very last image as the show ends. Catch it when you can.

"Now Muscle Shoals has got the swampers
and they've been known to pick a song or two"...

Bike Day lyric

"I've got a bike. You can ride it if you like. It's got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good. I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it." -Syd Barrett

Great back to back holidays to celebrate if you have the mind (and the resources).
