Show proof of vaccination, sure. But is that medical info? If so, how does HIPAA apply? So many things changing, so many decisions to be made. Such a great time to be an attorney, no?

Then again, when has it every NOT been a good time to be an attorney....?

This is the Nonsense of Love

by Mindy Nettifee


Our kiss is a secret handshake, a password.

We love like spies, like bruised prize fighters,

like children building tree houses.

Our love is serious business.

One look from you and my spine

reincarnates as kite string.

When I hesitate to hold your hand,

it is because to know is to be responsible for knowing.

II.

There is no clean way to enter

the heavy machinery of the heart.

Just jagged cutthroat questions.

Just the glitter and blood production.

III.

The truth is this:

My love for you is the only empire

I will ever build.

When it falls,

as all empires do,

my career in empire building will be over.

I will retreat to an island.

I will dabble in the vacation-hut industry.

I will skulk about the private libraries and public parks.

I will fold the clean clothes.

I will wash the dishes.

I will never again dream of having the whole world.

"I have a friend who’s an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don’t agree with very well. He’ll hold up a flower and say “look how beautiful it is,” and I’ll agree. Then he says “I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing,” and I think that he’s kind of nutty. First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe… I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it’s not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there’s also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don’t understand how it subtracts."

The American Right see others as Mexicans, Liberals, Homosexuals, etc.... But when discussing themselves, they stress that they are individuals, and demand to be treated as unlabelled and sovereign.
