Topic: some days are pretty good
I felt oddly euphoric earlier today but now I'm on an even keel. I have been thinking about celtic theology. There has to be a point at which the metaphysical and physical mysteries of the universe converge. I wonder if I could interest either Arlen or Peter (the two pastors I am in contact with) in a celtic liturgy service for the summer solstice.
I had a bad dream that went on and on. I had set up a craft display at the local school and the craft show was attended by a homicidal psychopath who stole my (empty) purse and my digital camera with important pictures on the memory stick. I didn't care about the camera but I was concerned about the photos. And I took grave risks to try to retrieve it but was unsuccessful before I woke up. :(
Searching for argentiferous galena......
I've been reading Minnesota geology again. The Archeozoic and Preterozoic eras were mind boggling in their length. But the Paleozoic, which means "ancient seas" was only 300,000,000 million years. Various plants and animals evolved and their fossil remains can be found here and there, although Minnesota isn't particularly well known for its fossils. The early Paleozoic, the Cambrian era, produced brachiopods, trilobites, sponges, worms, snails, algae an seaweek. The Ordovician produced cephalopods, crinoids, and later, fishes. The Devonian period is known for bony armored fish. Before the Paleozoic, Minnesota was at the epicenter of geological violence: mountains uplifting, volcanoes and earthquakes. But starting with the Paleozoic everything has been pretty quiet except for erosion and deposition. And, of course, glaciation.
I have felt the impetus to write a sonnet and enter it in a sonnet contest.
