Dan Goodman's prediction and politics journal.

Monday August 23, 2004. Tapestry Folkdance's September/October calendar arrived. The information on getting there by bus hadn't been updated to include the light rail line and the changes in the #23 bus schedule. (It runs later at night, which makes it much more useful for getting home from evening events.)

I called Tapestry about this. And then I expressed interest in volunteering for office work.

Result: They'll probably be emailing things for me to proofread.

***Steeple People had a bag sale on clothing. I got enough to last me a while. Now I need to weed out older clothing.

At the Wedge, I noticed lactose free soy milk. I hadn't realized that ordinary soy milk contained lactose, but it makes sense. Otherwise, the tofu calves wouldn't get their needed nourishment.

I bought dried peppermint and chicken livers. The livers are cheaper than in conventional groceries.

Peppermint tea turns out to give me the same lift as catnip tea; and peppermint is cheaper.
The story is going to be at least twice as long as I'd planned.

Yesterday, I posted the opening of "They Might Be Windmills" for crits on rec.arts.sf.composition. Today, I found out that what people found most interesting was two things peripheral to the story I'd planned. Both of which are tied in with the intended story -- but I hadn't planned on doing the things which would make that clear.
Speaking of a unified world, one of my American students confided in me after a trip abroad "they don't seem to have a cafe culture in Italy, do they?" 'What?," I stammered. 'Well, I didn't see a single Starbucks all the time I was there."

Writing: daily exercise -- Done, posted to this journal.

"They Might Be Windmills" -- See above.

"History Line" --
"Port Useless" --
"Well Met, Well Met, My Own True Love" --
Decluttering: Some things thrown away, some put away.

Mindwork: A few mini-meditations.
