It is becoming our theme song, partly because I am fascinated with grammar. To stay, it is an action verb or a linking verb, but is also a transitive verb, as here. Axé.
I woke up this morning realizing that it was a brilliantly clear sunny day and that I was excited to see it. Everything is possible when it is cold and sunny and dry like that. I woke up this morning interested in my field. Tomorrow is Monday and I will take the car to be … More Sunday

Cancelled for now in favor of fairly major repair to car, but I think I need … More Z Materialist
