Sunday in the Basement with Portly

I spent most of my day in the basement.

It's a nice basement. It's dry (which is a miracle in the Pacific NW), and relatively warm, and I'm working on a Project.

I wasn't so much puttering as I was flying about in a creative frenzy (which is a perfect way to spend a Sunday, as far as I'm concerned).

I'm building a video studio.

And that's all I have to say, today.

No -- wait -- it's five til midnight, so I'll also say: Please do something concrete to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. He was a pivotal person in helping to shape our nation -- his actions, and the actions of those who stood with him for equality and justice, have directly improved my existence (and yours, too, I suspect). Do something that is worthy of that legacy, and his memory, tomorrow.

I accept your challenge. I am going to teach a neighbor to make soup from real food - beans, beets, etc. I am currently trying to eat locally and I am hoping to encourage others. This is a start for me to take on a community commitment and a healthy, sustainable way of living.

Your video project sounds exciting.

Good on you, katec! That's exactly the type of thing I was hoping for!

Does writing a paper about using stereotypes in rhetorical arguments as a cheap excuse for a real argument count?

It does for me!
