Space Face Episode Three: Arrival

Is there consciousness when you're in a hibernation chamber floating through space for a year? Or do all those angst ridden dreams occur in the final seconds before waking? You don't know. All you know is that you have a very distant memory of leaving Earth when you wake up at the orbiting Martian space station/rest area, the Martian Frontier. For most, a permanent position as host of the Martian Frontier would be claustrophobic and oppressive, but for Bill, a quadriplegic since childhood, space offers liberty and independence.

In Memory of Mike Prichard


Here are some songs from my recently deceased friend Mike Prichard. Mike was a great guy and was loved by many. He lives on in his music, machines and teachings. His advice still guides me. This podcast will grow as I download more music, so subscribe or comeback and you will hear more.

Proud to be a Secular Jew

A couple definitions from The Joys of Yiddish by Leo Rosten, an excellent book.

Mishegoss: Literally: insanity, madness. But mishegoss is more often used in a lighter vein to describe not mental disease, but 1) a wacky, irrational, absurd belief... 2) A state of affairs so silly or unreal that it defies explanation... 3) A piece of tomfoolery, clowning... 4) A fixation...

"Every man has his own mishegoss." -- Folk Saying

Shiksa: A non-Jewish woman.

Return to Griffith Park






I became so used to going to Elysian Park rather than Griffith Park since the fire that I didn't even realize it was open. Unfortunately, it's not completely open yet. Isaac really wanted to go to Bee Rock. He's been talking about it for a while. We got all the way to the top of the trail which is not an easy hike for a six-year-old, and we were greeted by a bad sign.

Bureaucracy

Bureaucracy is draining and hard to spell.
