Anne Strieber, wife of author Whitley Strieber, wrote this in her blog: Go Skip a Watchman
Thursday, July 16, 2015  There's a ad on TV that claims that the oldest trees produce the sweetest fruit. I grew up on an orchard, and I know that this is wrong. The oldest trees produce the sourest fruit. At 89, Harper Lee has proved the truth of this in...

When Plunder Becomes a Way of Life

Posted by Luminosity , in Poems & Quotations 12 July 2015 - - - - - - · 261 views

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society,

Got Some Lychees

Posted by Luminosity , in Personal 06 July 2015 - - - - - - · 328 views

Turned my day around by audio blogging. Then I felt ready to do stuff. Went swimming in the middle of the day, unusual for me. Got it together to go out in the sun. Went to Chinatown and bought some jujubes. Got the best lychees from a certain store. It was a thing. Got a green coconut from another store. Then I went to a relative's house to give her the...

Had A Cold, No Darjeeling In House

Posted by Luminosity , in Tea Blog 19 June 2015 - - - - - - · 565 views

Only a few can appreciate the severity of the problem. Of course, I had Pu-erh tea, as well as a selection of green and herbal teas, another black tea, dried tangerine peel, fresh ginger, and honey, but I had no Darjeeling, my favorite. Also when I have a cold I might want a black tea made from Camelia sinensis sinensis instead of the more acidic Camelia...

Revlon Positive

This afternoon I cut my own hair, washed and conditioned it.

Doctors say a hospital patient is "Revlon Positive" when she is well enough to put on make up. I put on lipstick and a dark metal necklace. Normally I feel that metal on my body interferes with my Chi, but today I was stronger that the metal. For once I wore a short-sleeved tee shirt. I didn't...

I add this to room temperature water for its cooling, refreshing energy. YamaMotoYama Iced Green Tea tea also contains Vitamins C and K and antioxidants. Sometimes I add it to fruit juice. The good thing about taking...
