lots of little songs

Sunday I walked Beatrice, attended Weight Watchers, attended church, ate grilled chicken for lunch, and settled in to an afternoon indoors. I started tinkering with a work project at 2:30 p.m. At 7 p.m., I looked up and found myself nearly done with my work project. I spent some more time that evening. This burst of work made my Monday, a busy day, much less stressful. In the early evening, I walked in Limestone Quarry Park. I like that the new game Pokemon Go, out for two weeks now, has had such a wide impact. Every visit to a city park now features groups of folks playing the game. I think the exercise is good for folks. The minister's sermon at church was even based on Pokemon Go. The minister made the good point that if church people were as all-inclusive and collaborative as Pokemon Go players, perhaps churches would be better places.

Sunday featured another deeply sombre note, as the minister announced just before the service about the shootings of police officers in Baton Rouge. This has been such a dark passage.

Monday I worked a very full day, head start on my project notwithstanding. After a breakfast of Kix cereal and skim milk, I walked the shopping center next to my office building prior to work. At lunch, I walked in Breckinridge Park. Huge mowers worked the park, but I still saw an Eastern Kingbird, Eastern Bluebirds, Brown-Headed Cowbirds and an Eastern Phoebe during a brief stroll. Then I ate raw broccoli, raw baby carrots, sliced dill pickles and three slices of buffet sausage pizza at Cici's Pizza. In the early evening I walked in Crowley Park, where I stayed under trees where possible to mitigate the heat.

My wife made salmon and baked potato for dinner. We watched part of the Republican political convention. Usually,I watch both conventions in part notwistanding that I often favor what is said at the Democratic convention better.
But this year, the Republican convention irritated me. My wife put on an episode of "Outlander" and I crashed out.

Yesterday one of my songs came out on a compilation for "Ambient Arkansas" on the Aural Films netlabel. That marks three of my songs that have come out in the past month or so, not counting my own release of a song cycle. I like being invited onto compilations as it means lots of little releases.
