|Will the reigning World Series Champion Chicago Cubs repeat in 2017?|
Play ball! Another season of baseball is upon us and the New York Times has an interesting article about presidents throwing out the first pitch. What struck us the most was the last paragraph. That last paragraph is a poem to baseball by the 12-year-old Donald Trump.

|Close your eyes and make a wish...|
I think I know a remedy just for you.
Come to Barra de Navidad here on the bay
Where we all say hello while we’re on our way.
So round up some friends, you don’t have to go far
We’ll fill up some coolers and gas up the car
Bring some cerveza and make some ceviche
Climb on board, we’re off to the beach, eh!

|One Day She Woke Up to Share Art and Poetry.|
How do you quench your thirst in the desert? I guess it all depends on what you are thirsting for. Last fall in the California desert we came across the art and poetry of Marylou Falstreau. It was like coming across a canteen of water in the desert. It was welcome. It was needed. And it sustained us...temporarily.
As a person needs water, a writer needs inspiration and we followed up with Marylou to learn more about her art. Her poetry and her passion. This is what she had to say.

First Lines Second Thoughts is a look at the first lines of well known literary works. On second thought, do these opening words stand alone as poetry? Today, on this winter day, we look at the opening lines of H. G. Wells' classic, The Invisible Man. The tale was initially serialized in Pearson's Weekly before publication as a novel later that same year — 1897.

|The rooster symbolizes fidelity, punctuality and exorcises evil spirits.|
Happy Chinese New Year! To celebrate Chinese New Year how about cooking up some American blues. What's in the wok? A Little Red Rooster of course!
Like most blues standards Little Red Rooster borrows from many similar sounding songs that preceded it and it's true authorship is as mysterious as the blues itself.
