Sunday Salon...MLK Edition

Taken from the liturgy from today's worship service.

Foggy and gloomy. We lived inside a cloud all day yesterday and it appears that today will be the same. We called our daughter who lives at a higher elevation and she said yesterday was sunny and glorious. I think a road trip to higher climes is in order today.


Focus on political good news:

5. DirecTV plans to drop One America News Network, the conservative, disinformation-spewing channel. (Link to tweet)

6. COVID Preventative Nasal Sprays Trials in Australia. Game changer. (DKos)


Link to a bunch of Pro-vaxx memes. Very funny.



  • Completed this past week:
    • In the Shadow of the Moon: America, Russia, and the Hidden History of the Space Race by Amy Cherrix. A Cybils Nonfiction finalist. Very well-done and interesting. I just have a hard time imagining that teenagers would pick this book up to read. Print.
    • Punching Bag by Rex Ogle. Another Cybils nonfiction finalist. A memoir about growing up in an abusive family. Tough topic but very compelling. Audio.
  • Currently reading:
    • The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks (Young Reader's Edition) by Jeanne Theoharis and Brandy Colbert. A Cybils finalist. This book's mission is to set the story straight about Rosa Parks and her accomplishments, adapted from the author's adult book published in 2013, it includes new information. Print. 6%.
    • The Story of More: How We Got to Climate Change and Where to Go From Here by Hope Jahren. A nonfiction book by the author of Lab Girl. Oh boy! If we make it out of this crisis alive, it will be a miracle. Audio. 67%
    • Beautiful Country by Qian Julie Wang. A book club selection. I had to request this book from the library again after I didn't finish it in December. A memoir. E-book. 31%.

On the lighter side:

Ever feel this way?

And now for some bad spelling examples that prove a different point than they think:


More inspiring thoughts:

Don't celebrate MLK day. Do something good for another person on the day.
