Happy Repeal Day to all those who celebrate.

Cover for the jazz album Juba Lee by the Avram Fefer Quartet: Avram Fefer, Marc Ribot, Eric Revis, and Chad Taylor; showing a black stylized slightly cartoonish illustration of a human figure on an orange background with arms outstretched, holding what appears to be a fan in one hand and a rattle or magnifying glass in the other, wearing a long tunic with many small crescent moons or birds like chainmail

This morning, my mind is like, um, it’s like, oh what’s the word? Something fancy and cool. And super smart. C’mon. Think. Quicksilver? A sieve? An abandoned power station?

RIP Tom Phillips.

Well. Isn’t that just some of the best news I can’t tell anyone yet.

Crescent moon through bare branches out my kitchen window this morning, unphotographable.

To demonstrate what a savvy self-promoter I am, I just deactivated my Twitter account without so much as a farewell post followed by a lingering dormant period to allow my followers to find me elsewhere.

But whatever. It’s just one website. I’m still out here on the Internet.
