Why I Care About #BlackLivesMatters (and Why You Should Too)

One of those sets of tools and limits is the tacit understanding that reasonable lawful decisions made in the performance of their official duties that happen in an instant on the street will generally be adjudicated in favor of the officer.  Otherwise, no one would take the job. 

However, if that understanding is abused by the police, as minority communities have complained for decades, and which they can now prove with video, then all the people have a responsibility to take notice.

Sea breath. Sea breathe. Sea breeze.

We know the stages of the tide, the breathing in & the breathing out of the sea. And we sense, more than know, we are now near the turning of slack high water.  These heartbeats alone we have to drift placidly together over our anchor, all straining slacked, before the next sea breath.  We are happy now, even joyful.  Riding high & free, before the turning of the last tide.  

Waiting on Swarm Season

I'm organizing my swarm catching gear today.  And I thought of the Trojans streaming like bees to defend their home.  

But swarms are different.  Homer was describing offense.  Swarms are new life, like dividing cells under a microscope.  Mitosis of the hive.
