11:51 am - Book recommendation
Liquor and Prime , both written by Poppy Z Brite are excellent culinary novels that delve into mystery and food. I've followed this author since her goth/horror vampire writing days and am pleased to see just how much her writing has grown. Word of caution: Don't read these books if you're hungry. Brite's food imagery will make you start drooling like Pavlov's dog.

09:09 pm - Gay Rights and Gay Marriage
I find this site extremely useful.

Scott Bidstrup is a free-lance writer who has been active in political issues and in the gay rights movement, specializing in youth and marriage rights issues, since coming out as a gay man in 1994. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Brigham Young University (1971) and is a retired microwave communications and satellite earth station transmission engineer, born in the United States, but currently living (in exile) in Costa Rica.

His essays, including this one, have been frequently reprinted in magazines and in book form in essay anthologies, and this particular essay, the most widely reprinted, is often used in formal logic and critical thinking classes, both at high-school and college level, as a study text. The web site which the author maintains (of which this essay is a part) is one of the oldest and most popular personal web sites on the Internet. It "went live" in early 1995, and over the years since it has become quite popular among gay youth and their parents, as well as intellectual and political readers of the web; the site currently gets about 150,000 page-reads per month in total.


Here is the this particular essay though it is under the cut in full incase someday the link breaks.

Typing in just www.bidstrup.com will take you to the archive of his essays.

12:01 pm - Tao Te Ching
Quoted:here and a favorite of mine.
From the Introduction

"Lao Tsu and Taoism:
Lao Tsu, and oder contemporary of Confucius, was keeper of the imperial archives at Loyang in the province of Honan in the sixth century B.C. All his life he taught that "The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao"; but, according to ancient legend, as he was riding off into the desert to die-sick at the ways of men-he was persuaded by a gatekeeper in northwestern China to write down his teaching for posterity.
The essence of Taoism is contained in the eighty-one chapters of the book-roughly 5.000 words-which have for 2,500 years provided one of the major underlying influences in Chinese thought and culture, emerging also in proverbs and folklore. Whereas Confucianism is concerned with day-to-day rules of conduct, Taoism is concerned with a more spiritual level of being."

10:37 am - Endings are Catharsis
By Steven Winn, Chronicle Arts and Drama Critic:
Endings are catharsis: They give meaning to what comes before, and change us from the way we were.

In a lovely poem about failing to record the end of a movie on her VCR, Mona Van Duyn laments: " 'I can't bear it! I have to see how it comes out!'/ For what is story if not relief from pain/ of the inconclusive, from dread of the meaningless?" The poem ends with a wishful vow to follow "past vacancies of darkness" and in doing so, "to find the end of the story."
