(Community Matters) Video from this morning’s Running With The Bulls in Pamplona. Reading that the path into the stadium was unexpectedly blocked – the bulls and people locked together. Was bad; 23 taken to hospital, one evidently in quite serious condition.
omg, makes me shake; I remember being so scared when they got close.
(Community Matters)Dining under the 40 foot Elm, twinkling and dangling lights from the branches, candles on long tables . . . one of my favorite dining experiences this year. Our friend Sonya Cote opened Eden Eastat Springdale Farm. We had dinner there last night with Shawn Sides and Graham Reynolds – admittedly, we could probably have cafeteria food with these two and still have a spectacular night – and the farm to table dining experience was magic.
(Community Matters) Hip hop artist Macklemore. His single “Thrift Shop” has been viewed on YouTube over 350 million times. Same Love – 56,807,005 hits.
The video, spanning decades, depicts the life of the main character and the same-sex partner with whom he falls in love, including the social conflicts which befall them in relation to their sexual orientation, their eventual marriage, and their final parting in old age. Macklemore cameos in a non-speaking role in the video.
When I was in the 3rd grade
I thought that I was gay
Cause I could draw, my uncle was
And I kept my room straight
I told my mom, tears rushing down my face
She’s like, “Ben, you’ve loved girls since before Pre-K!”
Tripping, yeah, I guess she had a point, didn’t she?
A bunch of stereotypes all in my head
I remember doing the math, like
“Yeah, I’m good at little league”
It's about community, entrepreneurs, politics, art . . and sometimes just silly fun . . . a slightly gay blog.
Love big West Texas skies, Austin and my husband, Dr. Steven Robert Tomlinson, with whom I’ve spent the last 18 years – thirteen years since we were married on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada. Then, married again at St. James Episcopal Church in Austin, TX on June 27, 2015.
