How to keep learning? How to counter Trump and Fox News. A 420 character 9 liner on Times Square bees and staying in the know.

 

 

 

I approximate to stay on the edge of my learning.

I read, listen, & make connections.

Often I do this frenetically so as not to fall prey to conspiracy-theorist,

Fox News predator types.

I like the mindset of that beekeeper

watching the capture of a huge bee swarm in Times Square.

He estimated the swarm size to be 20,000.

Are you sure? No, he says, but, to be sure all you need to do is

count the legs & divide by 6.”

Fearless Girl.

When Lydia was 8 she & I were crossing a mountain stream.

She bounded to the further bank. I lingered. Scared.

“Have no fear, Nani!” she exhorted with her hands on her hips,

a proud 4 foot tall, invincible force.

Then she leaned in to grab my hand.

And I too leaped, er, gingerly picked my way across.

She could have been the model for the Wall Street statue taking on the Charging Bull.

A fearless girl.

Have you seen the sidewalk on Library Way in NYC?

If you haven’t, on your next trip to the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue, walk along 41st Street. You’ll have a perfect view of the building (look up) and plenty of inspirational quotes about reading, writing, and literature (look down) along the way.

Garson Kanin’s most famous quote, from his hit play “Born Yesterday,” is there on the sidewalk.

Toni 3/9/17

Garson Kanin, who broke into show business as a saxophone-playing high school dropout and went on to write ”Born Yesterday,” direct ”The Diary of Anne Frank” and become the co-writer of two classic Tracy-Hepburn movies, died at his home in Manhattan in 1999.
