First Day without snow

Today was the first day without snow.

We’re caught up in a number of projects around what I playfully call the outsiders,

those who are anti Swarthmore College Inn or, at least, anti the misbegotten 320 roundabout idea.

Anyway, today was caught up with that.

More than that I cannot say.

Three articles in Delco Times with one each by Alex Rose and Eric Wolfe

explaining our position.  One other by Eric explaining the INN siders position.

(I keep hearing Dobie Gray’s “I’m in with the In Crowd, I go where the

Inn Crows goes” richocheting in my head)


I wanted to start my Poems again on word press

with one accompanied by a photo of a painting

but I wonder about whether that’s legal (The artist is dead

and not as well known as he should be. Photo from a German Museum)


Went to exercise last night for the first time in a very long time.

I think it will be better when I feel confident enough

to wear headphones while I do the exercise circuit.

Last night I kept thinking about exercising while exercising.

Later, I thought why am I here.

Saw some very  very very fat guys at the gym.

“That’s why I’m here” I thought.

That may be an ism I suppose but

it’s one I haven’t been able to shed.


After this entry, I’ll continue with my Inn sider activities,

along with Delco Greens, DU, Pbac, and Poets and Prophets.



Lastly, saw These are the damned last night

It’s basically about GMO Children,

directed by Joseph Losey and—

I won’t say anything else but see it.


It’s seven so back to work.
