  2. I tend to spend my time creating, you know my crafts @Troy , outside of drawing/writing/crafting, i do watch some sport. I read paper books as well. Just finished a book from Alicia Dunbar nelson, I enjoyed it alot. I must say, I Am not alone in the house. Many people live alone and the environment can be stifling. Nothing is like a tactile touch,a voice in a nearby room. The isolation makes one numb to the outside world, like prisoners.
  3. Dear Readers, I tend to enjoy reading various articles on writing , the industry, the concepts, et cetera. parallel to craft articles. These topics can be fun or engaging. As some of you know, I have a controlled electronic footprint, meaning, I don't keep old posts. This blog never had fifteen posts and never will cause I don't like ejunk. But, I realize, aside my posts to what I created and create, I need a post to just chit chat if you will. So this post will serve that function, through its comments I will posts various topics concerning writing. Work Cloud EBook

  6. An autumn wind speak this morning. It speak that the autumn is here for good, until the winter wind come. Let me boil some syrup. I need to get the wood, give me a moment. <Sniffle> I remember when I came here. The tantalum rush was amazing. Can you imagine a stream of automated vessels, frozen bodies inside , risking fate, between harvested body parts to raided goods to slavery on an A.B. hideaway , streaming from the spaceport in Addis Abeba to Beijing2 on Europa. I recall viewing it,nightly, with my ElectronMacroscope, from here on Titan. Few of those brave travelers made it here; the
  7. I remember the autumn gatherings when I was a girl; sparkling gala’s where my parents dressed me plus my siblings in glittering attire. I loved it. I felt always like a princess. The pumpkin pie, the cranberrry sauce, the rice pudding, the apple custard, the watermelon slices, the corn bread … I loved it all. A peaceful rearing for me, the magic was in merely being alive; I had no need of unicorns from mystical worlds gated in forests or aliens from beyond the sky or anything unearthly. I had a brilliant summer, and now my Autumn. My autumn is simple and in continuity, a life from
  8. International Day of Peace story A man one day thought to himself, I will disturb nothing else, while laying in a bed, formerly his. He pee on the bed, defacate on the bed, so that he will not disturb the floor, the door, the world outside. His body hurt when he become hungry and he shake in the bed, stirring in the odor. Finally, he realize he has to disturb where he lay. He can never be completely peaceful, and gets off his bed at peace.
  9. 9/11 2020 https://richardmurrayhumblr.tumblr.com/post/629017695402311680/transcript 9/11 has two lessons, first, don't lie to yourself The tragedy in 9/11 is that most people in NYC have accepted a lie as the narrative of that day. I was near those buildings. I heard/felt both planes collide into skyscrapers. If I ever find my 9/11 diary, a set of writings of all I experienced that day, I will publish it. But my memory provides enough detail to know the end of lying to self is the first lesson from 9/11. People in NYC during that day asked why,

  14. The database in the mind define: harmony as a positive fit, harmonies as two or more positive fit, harmonic as an attribute given to a thing if it make two or more fit pleasantly or have harmonies, harmonica as a harmonic musical instrument. The database in the mind has no knowledge of the insignia on the harmonica, nor can the sensors in the eyes tell when it was made. The database in the mind has the original video clip of the ancient hand the harmonica came from, shared to all through the dream link, all today are born with. The database in the mind is
  15. Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, wherever you are listening, I am richard murray and I have a question for anyone who is listening. The question will only require a sentence to answer. I promise. I want us to make an anthology , not of complete stories or short films but sentences. An anthology of sentences, all you need to do is comment to this tumble to add to it. But! wait, before you type in , Rich shut up, :) I want you to hear the question to be answered. The question for this anthology of sentences is... drumroll:) If the title of a book is the following, what is the fi

  17. July 4th is past but I ask all, at the end of the war of secession from the british empire by the thirteen american colonies, three groups of black people existed in the thirteen american colonies now the united states of america. Enslaved black people in the usa, black soldiers for the usa, black soldiers for the british. The enslaved black people in the usa represented a majority of the population of black people in the usa, I say over ninety percent. They were enslaved before said war, during said war and after said war. The second largest groups is the black soldiers for britian,
  18. Frederick Douglass July 5th speech- my replies to some points I will provide quotations in double bracket and reply in double colon. <<The task before me is one which requires much previous thought and study for its proper performance. I know that apologies of this sort are generally considered flat and unmeaning. >> ::This opening is true in a very key way. Douglass is admitting the topic he is about to discuss is complex. A log tragedy in modernity is the agenda driven use of communication or past prose. Many people in modernity say the title of this speech is a li
  19. if only the money thought that:) yes, well maybe control need to be vested away from money
  20. I am a huge fan of Viola Davis, long before her larger popularity. She is correct in her point. I quote her in double brackets <<I got the Oscar, I got the Emmy, I got the two Tonys, I've done Broadway, I've done off-Broadway, I've done TV, I've done film, I've done all of it. I have a career that's probably comparable to Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Sigourney Weaver. They all came out of Yale. They came out of Julliard. They came out of NYU. They had the same path as me and yet, I am nowhere near them. Not as far as money. Not as far as job opportunities. Nowhere close to it. But

    Today is the greatest elongation between mercury and the sun, that means today mercury will appear farthest from the sky than any time after until the next greatest elongation


    Tomorrow is a lunar penumbral eclipse. MEaning the moon will go across the penumbral which is where the light of the sun is refracted off the side of the earth, not the umbral where the sunlight is blocked by the earth.

    It is also a strawberry full moon, a better word I think is totluc moon meaning total light moon. The moon is always full. Where as the %paraluc moon can be for the other phases of the moon outside the new moon , which is more appropriately anluc meaning no light.

    It is called a strawberry moon based on the habit of algonquin's , a native people that used to live where the midatlantic states in the usa reside, who will pick strawberry's around this time of year.


    It is also the roman catholic st bonafice day who is known as the patron saint of the germans. As well as an Ember day for the Latin Catholics, so be ready to fast you latins.

  23. The artwork above is from MAurice Jackson, the post I gained it from is deleted now.... I can easily talk about the various frictions in the Black Statian community but I rather make a point to the solution to the frictions. In my mind, the solution to the frictions in the Black Statian <meaning Black people who live in the usa, Black defined by phenotype, not geography of ancestral origin/language/religion/geography of birth/gender/financial level/membership to party of governance/ or anything except phenotype or appearance > requires an organization or a group that has the desire/resou
