For those who ignore social media, you can ignore this.
For the rest of you, I have a word about laziness. Yes, I’m talking to you, person who has your Facebook feed set to automatically retweet things.
Here is the situation. Twitter allows for 140 characters. It is an art and science to craft messages that fit the space and make sense. Much can be communicated in a good tweet.

At the far end of our limbs we have the necessary appendages to propel our bodies through the water. We begin our lives floating in an oceanic body of fluids called the amniotic universe in a symbiotic unity with mother and child where we experience a “lack of boundaries and obstructions” akin to how we feel immersed in open waters.
The origin of our aquatic nature is suggested by Charles Darwin when he asked, “What can be more curious than that the hand of a man?” Our fingers typing on a keyboard began their journey over 350 million years ago when some tetrapod held its head high enough above the waterline to catch its prey. That’s when its evolutionary “modification of gene expression” realized there was another world.

Strolling of the Heifers Presents an Evening of Cosmic Comedy with Swami Beyondananda - "the Mark Twain of our times"By MartinLangeveld | Sun, August 21 2016
Swami Beyondananda, the comedian also known as Steve Bhaerman, has been called “the Mark Twain of our times” by best-selling author Marianne Williamson — because he is not only hilariously funny but also offers sharp social commentary along with a spiritual perspective.
In his first-ever Brattleboro appearance, the Swami will present his cosmic wisdom at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden on Friday, Sept. 9. The show is a fund raiser for Strolling of the Heifers.
For nearly 30 years, the Swami has been a fount of comedy disguised as wisdom — or is it wisdom disguised as comedy? In any case, this heart-opening, mind-expanding show will help you wake up laughing and leave laughter in your wake.
Everyone can make sandcastles, and with a bit of practice and a few simple tools those sandcastles can be quite nice.
One of the best tools to have on hand is a straight edge. They are great for carving, packing, and shaping mounds of sand into walls, stairs, windows and doors.
In this first video, Jenny the Sand Castle Girl, an Australian sand castle making champion, shares some of her tips and tricks for making an enormous beach castle.

“I returned to my gymnastics and calligraphy experiences as a child, finding myself jumping, stretching, and reaching as I painted. Chinese traditional breathing exercise (Qigong) continued to help me channel energy when I painted. Throughout the nineties, materials, surface and texture were self-renewing areas of exploration. I derived a lot of inspiration from living in New York City. On the street and subway, on the ground in the cement sidewalk, a peeling wall, everywhere I went, I kept discovering: ‘Oh, look. There’s a painting!’ The experience of ‘Edge’ is about stepping into and out of myself. My art-making is characterized by this existential process. For me, Art is about Paradox: appearance-disappearance, life-death, nothingness-wholeness, chaos-groundedness, emptiness-substance, movement-fixity.”
