Butter Lamb Meme

I hereby note the emergence of, I think, the first significant Buffalo web meme: The Butter Lamb.

Buffalo Rising (see comments, and comments, and keep looking) and Flickr (last year)

Do you know the butter lamb? It comes in many guises.


Tonight I've been enjoying the Anne Waldman and Tina LeMarque Denison interviews at Future Primitive, and geeking out over my Google Map of Asheville, NC, making my plans to visit there more detailed.


Definitely in a period of reassessment, particularly in regard to work and money. I have a Master's degree and live very near the poverty line. I miss using some of my deeper, more elaborate, more technical skills. I am looking around for a direction.

I bought a flower for my hat.

On Leap Day, I took the dog to Front Park in a light snow, and we ran into Beaufort there, with her Willy and her Sam. The dogs perambulated B. and I talked herbs, gardens, dreams.

Since the bronchitis, I've been staying at home, pondering, more than going out. I long for Spring and long walks. Will start seeds soon.

I read Cormac McCarthy's The Road, blocking out Dumbo showing on tv for the Pearl. I just can't handle Dumbo. Post-apocalyptic story with sad ending? Yes, as long as I don't have to see elephants crying.
