An historic cause to reflect and celebrate in the US.
The marriage equality decision handed down by the conservative-stacked Roberts Court, and Bree Newsome's slow, steady climb up a 30 ft flagpole to bring down the Confederate flag that disgraces the South Carolina state Capitol, are historic cause to celebrate this Independence Day.

On Tuesday June 30, there'll be a leap second, thus reminding us that time is a human construct.

As the Earth continues to slow, leap seconds will grow more common. Eventually we will need one every year, and then even more. Scientists could have avoided these awkward skips by choosing instead to adjust the duration of the second itself. Who would notice? That is what they did, in fact, until 1955. ― James Gleick

Nice out of the box thinking - redefine the second to more closely model the physical construct.  Genius

Used to love Sly & The Family Stone when I was a kid. Listening to TTB covering their tunes is a treat.

Extremely tiny ceramics by Washington artist Jon Alameda who hand throws pots, vases, bowls, and tea pots at 1" scale. Watch a video of him working at the link.

Ode to the Bookshop

My favorite independent bookstore Hungry Mind, operated on Grand Avenue in Saint Paul from 1970-2000. I knew Hungry Mind for the last 19 years of its life. Hungry Mind sold the rights to their name in 1999 for a cash infusion. By the following April it assumed the new name Ruminator Bookstore. Four years hence the Ruminator space was replaced with a local branch of the upscale clothier Patagonia. So goes the bookshop. 

Now my reading oracle is the iPad mini. I miss the sanctuary of the bookshop, the smell of the book stock, the feel of the paper, and the sound of a page turning.

The Bookshop has a thousand books,
All colors, hues, and tinges,
And every cover is a door
That turns on magic hinges.
― Nancy Byrd Turner
