I woke up today not unlike any other day; I washed my face, brushed my teeth, threw on some clothes and went out to buy some smokes and soda i.e. caffeinated Pepsi. I shut my apartment door and began walking down the flights of stairs to ground level. On the way down, the building manager smiles while entering the third floor door with a can of paint “ahhh…. She is going OUT into the Brave New World. We bothed laughed. We both work here. I on my computer and as a house lady to my man, not to be confused with house wife, and he as a building manager and house husband to his wife.
About 20 minutes later I open my laptop and ask how my friend Dee is doing. He had come down with a ferocious flew a few days ago. He’s feeling AOK today. Then he sends this link on messenger. Below is our conversation edited to remove times, the word says and to add links.

I watched the Video Dee sent, and began writing this post. Whatever may happen within governement will happen. I was a housewife before the divorce four years ago, five years, maybe? World Beats is actually called Beast wihtout Bordersis a local monthly gathering of people who appreciate music from all over the world. They bring in performers and musicians from all over. It’s a great place to dance, spin fire or hoola hoop, dependant upon the size of the venue. Marc Emery still resides in Vancouver. Dee is an animator who is avidly persuing claymation. A Clanimator?
Life goes on. I’m off to eat some late lunch. If you are in the Vancouver area maybe I’ll see you out dancing this evening at Beats without Borders. Cheers! ha ha… and it’s walking distance from where I live.
