When I first arrived in Durham, October 1995, I lived on East Trinity between Mangum and Roxboro streets, across from the Grace Baptist Church. Durham in 1995 was not the Durham of 2015. In 1995 you could still smell tobacco curing downtown. The sweet odor of curing tobacco scented the streets.

The congestion brought about by inflammation of nasal passages is merely a prelude to a host of other symptoms like headaches, pain and swelling around the eyes, cheeks, and nose and interrupted sleep cycles.

To alleviate symptoms, patients turn to nasal sprays to find relief. Studies show that nasal washing can help reduce the suffering so that people do not necessarily have to resort to surgical options to resolve their problem.

Two YouTube videos which capture the natural flow of life in the surrounds, while this angel, incarnated here on earth, lifts us up over the small talk and petty postures of ego into the sublime.

For Andrea Reusing—an award-winning chef, a leader in the sustainable agriculture movement, and a working mother—”cooking in the moment” simply means focusing on one meal at a time. Tender spring broccoli given a smoky char on the grill, a summer berry pudding with cold cream, or a cider-braised pork shoulder served with pan-fried apples on a frosty night—cooking and eating this way allows food in season to become the foundation of a full life. Cooking in the Moment is a rich, absorbing journey through a year in Reusing’s home kitchen as she cooks for family and friends using ingredients grown nearby.

Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. In this class, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself. More importantly, you’ll learn about not only the theoretical underpinnings of learning, but also gain the practical know-how needed to quickly and powerfully apply these techniques to new problems. Finally, you’ll learn about some of Silicon Valley’s best practices in innovation as it pertains to machine learning and AI.

Feb. 20, 2019 | Felix Contreras — Something happens when you get a chance to see Afro-Cuban percussionist Pedrito Martinez perform. First of all, his smile radiates. It’s hard to imagine someone happier than he is to make music in front of people; and as we saw during his turn behind Bob Boilen’s desk, he mesmerizes with this almost otherworldly talent on congas. His hands can be a blur because they move so quickly. To the untrained eye, it’s hard to see exactly what he is doing to draw out the sounds he does from his drums. I even know a little about playing hand drums and it still doesn’t make it easier to fathom his remarkable talent.

Plastic pollution is one of the greatest threats to ocean health worldwide. In spite of society’s many efforts to properly dispose of plastic waste, between 4 and 12 million metric tons of plastic waste enter the ocean each year—enough to cover every foot of coastline on the planet. And that amount is expected to more than double in the next 10 years. Let that sink in for a moment.

In many ways, there has never been a better time to be alive. Violence plagues some corners of the world, and too many still live under the grip of tyrannical regimes. And although all the world’s major faiths teach love, compassion and tolerance, unthinkable violence is being perpetrated in the name of religion.
And yet, fewer among us are poor, fewer are hungry, fewer children are dying, and more men and women can read than ever before. In many countries, recognition of women’s and minority rights is now the norm. There is still much work to do, of course, but there is hope and there is progress.

This year, I’ve been doing a lot of research on how to help my clients who keep telling me about certain symptoms that they are struggling with and it seemed to boil down to “poor gut health”. Our daily diets are wrecking havoc on our bodies and our bodies are not happy with us.
Our body is responding in the form of pain, discomfort, weight gain, and disease. I truly believe that if we can improve our nutrition, we can heal and fix a lot of problems that are going on with our bodies or at least allow our bodies to make it easier for the medication and treatments to have an environment to truly work and do their job.
In this video I answer the questions:
1. What is Kombucha?
2. Why is it important for Gut Health?
3. What does it do?
4. Where can I buy it?
5. What are my favorite flavors and brands?
Do you drink Kombucha? What other questions do you have about it?

Any newly discovered music from a legend on the order of John Coltrane is an event.

I heard Afro Blue for the first time when the choreography for the Dayton Dance Company ADF performance featured this track at Stewart Theatre back in 1996.

The first time I heard a Charles Mingus composition I was instantly mesmerized by the organic melody and improvisatory order of his music. . It’s a mix of be bop, soft bop, hard bop, and a little bit of old 30’s Chicago jazz. It was apparent that this was superior music that touched one at a soul level; music that invited a close immersion in mindful listening.

“Just because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean that it’s a bad thing. I think Durham is misrepresented a lot. I think that Durham has in the past and probably even still now gets a bad rap for something that maybe a minority, a small group of people, will do. They paint the whole city that way. Really, it’s just about understanding.

Why resurrect and revitalize a Kate Bush article from 2016 on 12/19/18? KATE Bush warrants a Durham Cool celebration. The Enduring, Incandescent Power of Kate Bush article in today’s online New Yorker by Margaret Talbot was a notable inspiration.

While we celebrate the up and coming British pop notables it is wise to look back on the singer/songwriter groundbreakers of British music. Kate Bush was the first UK # 1 with own penned song, Wuthering Heights (referencing the Bronte novel of the same name).

Walker Percy, Obl.S.B. (May 28, 1916 – May 10, 1990) was an American author from Covington, Louisiana, whose interests included philosophy and semiotics. Percy is known for his philosophical novels set in and around New Orleans, Louisiana, the first of which, The Moviegoer, won the U.S. National Book Award for Fiction.

MOLLY’S GAME is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.

How do you feel about your national flag? Maybe you fly it with pride outside your home? Or do you feel that it’s a distasteful display of nationalism? Perhaps you have two flags that represent who you are and where you come from? Or maybe you really don’t care that much?
I am reluctant yogini. I resisted yoga my entire adult life. As a woman and a social worker, surely yoga would seal my fate as predictable. I grew up with my dad, once a Marine, doing headstands in our living room. A girl’s gotta resist her father’s influence.
What are your thoughts on this important topic, education for undocumented immigrants? There is an easy “Ten Word response” we often hear from politicians who give us the Ten-word answers to complicated issues like health care and immigration. Yes, “repeal Obamacare” but replace it with What? Not so easily done as this congress has just demonstrated. Now wisdom tells us we need to fix what is not working with ATC and not throw out the healthy aspects of this legislation.
I recently discovered Morning Glory Muffins. My epiphany happened one morning at Whole-foods market. I was fully had at first bite into this crumbling mess of scrumptious muffin. Morning Glory indeed!

How Would Forgiveness Change Your Life? There was a time not so long ago when my relationship with my brother was strained at best. I’m talking 5 minutes in a room together and we were both gritting our teeth and ready to bolt. I would go to his home each Thanksgiving because “that’s what families do.” And as soon as I parked my car in his driveway, the countdown clock to my departure would begin in my head.
In this complicated and demanding world, we can all benefit from someone to back us up: to be an extra pair of hands on a job needing four, to be in that ‘other place at the same time’. Whirling Dervish can be your extra set of hands and the person on the go to pick up, drop off, purchase and return.
On World Cafe’s Sense Of Place trip to North Carolina, we discussed the DIY beginnings and subsequent growth of Durham, N.C.’s Merge Records with co-founders Laura Ballance and Mac McCaughan. Founded in 1989 as a way to release their band Superchunk’s music — and, later, albums by their friends — the label has become a powerhouse thanks in part to artists like Spoon and Arcade Fire.
H.C. McEntire, frontwoman of Mount Moriah, strikes out on her own with her debut solo album LIONHEART. Stereogum describes her voice as “weary, wise, and bright as morning sunshine all at once,” and that sunshine glows throughout the triumphant LIONHEART.

Trump Voter: afraid of Dictator in the White House
Durham Cool has kept to a policy of no divisive content or speech on this website that only serves to divide us. This is an important mid-term election for a myriad of reasons and a multitude of critical issues before us. This video captures some of the frustration Independent Trump voters feel about the current state of our executive and legislative branches.
Durham Cool will reserve this spot for wedding speech videos, in the public domain, that reach and sometimes exceed Durham Coolness. The bar is very high, as evidenced by this first Dutch delivery.

The Silvia Perez Cruz voice: plaintive, lush, passionate, unbridled, aloft, soaring, lyrical, redolent of love lost, conquer, sadness, history. The terra firma, air, and water of Spain! We are justifiably held in abeyant amor. Forgive the lurid, purple prose as it seems justified in this case. Love; the art transcendent. Silvia Perez Cruz suitors get in line behind the Durham Cool team.

Gather your tribe around you and perform a Gestalt scream session, heads tilted back, shouting to the heavens. Open your windows, like Network and shout, “I can’t take this anymore”! Then breathe, sit down comfortably on a pillow or in a chair, straighten your spine, tongue at roof of mouth where palette meets the back of your front teeth.
Yes we bring back Tedeschi Trucks Band Tiny Desk Concert
This band is so great they even make it large in the smallest of places. This NPR tiny desk concert is not the best live show, more like live to tape in a very cramped studio space.
“Don’t Give up” is such a deeply inspirational, uplifting song for me. I truly loved the original studio version, featuring Kate Bush yet truly enjoyed the Paula Cole duet on Secret World Live after watching the video. I love the secret world lineup so much I find myself watching the YouTube videos regularly. There is so great chemistry and apparent carmadarie on this tour I highly recommend purchasing the Secret World video from Amazon Instant video as I will today.

When I was very young and even more impressionable than I am today at age 53, I watched a Spanish dance company from Madrid perform a Traditional Flamenco dance at my Elementary School. Right away I was hooked by the palpable sensuality/romance and sharp staccato movements of hand and stomping foot.

Listen to this recitation in its entirety, best in meditative stillness and receptivity, to this reading of the sublime, Golden Light Sutra. You may listen the 2nd and 108 time, while washing dishes or working on a project. I recommend one download the Sutra and recite it all the way through at least one time during this lifetime. Often I will listen to the Sutra as a final practice at the end of each day.
Hearing enables one to remember. To remember is to agree with the God inside of yourself; remembrance is beyond definition. Nevertheless remembrance is encoded in our DNA, and experienced in our whole being.

What occurred to Nashville and mainstream country music is our fault. Our collective fault due to the passive way we comply when our music devolves to a corporate advertisement rather than a human expression drawn from “real” lives.

‘We draw our people, our strength, from every country and every corner of the world.’ — Ronald Reagan’s final speech was a love letter to immigrants
Among all the chores involved in opening a B&B, the one I dreaded most was somehow managing to create a website for the business. It would be an understatement to say that my ignorance of such matters is nearly total, and that my techno-phobia is appallingly obvious.
I just watched, The 2011 film, The Music Never Stopped on Amazon prime. The tale of a father who struggles to bond with his estranged son Gabriel, after Gabriel suffers from a brain tumor that prevents him from forming new memories. With Gabriel unable to shed the beliefs and interests that caused their physical and emotional distance,…. Henry must learn to embrace his son’s choices and try to connect with him through music.
This morning, while reading the Sunday Times education section I was left with dire conclusions about the current state of our 4 year public/private College level delivery model, excluding recent improvements to Community and 2-year college programs (financial aid and quality).
This commentary by Coach K about Coach Jeff Capel says alot about both men. Durham Cool may have a favorite in the crosstown rivalry but I can personally attest to the way Coach K behaves when the cameras are off and he is greeting fans, talking about his family and sharing a laugh with a loyal UNC fan.
I chose this video as much for the on stage banter between close friends who happen to comprise the best band alive at that moment as for the unmistakeable Kurt Cobain cigarette growling croon. Who alive at anytime prior or now sounds like Kurt Cobain?

I have admired Mary J Blige for awhile and for good reasons. There is no denying her vocal chops. She may not have the most flashy uber octave range but for my money she has the most honest and pure vocal performance of any artist working today.
The prominent bass line in “Down in the Tube station at Midnight”, coupled with the brilliant lyric was enough to sell me. The fervency, and bluesy vocal front man command of Weller was an obvious strong point. I came to appreciate the Jam asynchronously after a full swing with the Style Council.
You, no doubt, have seen this one? Regardless, it deserves a second viewing. The inimitable, Emma Stone vs. Jimmy Fallon:
This is Durham Cool for those keeping tabs. Durham cool has something to do with people, comedy, live music, swimming holes, beautifully clean rivers, and streams, all-night diners and of course, Emma Stone.

An explanation for this article about Reckless Daughter a biography of Joni Mitchell.
While much cherished, the book has a racial dynamic that Sorkin felt he had to update for a 2018 audience.
Pink is a very good singer. Most close listeners know this, though some are surprised that such a popular pop star can sing, without the aid of simulators and othe misc. electronica. It is certainly so and has been from the start as evidenced by this pared down performance.
The years 1967-1971 were a vibrant period for so many Artists, not least of whom Joni Mitchell. This was the period of the album Blue and many fans first exposure to this Canadian Creative artist.
Jaco Pastorius was a maestro of the electric bass. Fluid and dynamic, he made his bass sing with sinewy shamanic algorithms, sepentlike lines that ran sotto narritvo under, over, behind the high hat and the soprano soaring Joni altissimo.

Received a text from a friend reading a book and noticed a mention of “Nurse Jon” and “Relaxation Jon.” What a big surprise for us both! This book is powerful, like one of Stephen Levine, or Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’ Living and Dying workshops. I read it on plane flight and trains in India! Right after she finishes about our interaction and an outcome of her practice, recovery from an anxiety, panic attack, she shares her relative, Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Bright Hour story.

New York’s attorney general says he’ll lead a multistate lawsuit to stop the Federal Communications Commission’s rollback of rules that guaranteed equal access to the internet.

My close friend was one of the first 100 consumers to be offered a beta test of the Alexa Echo when they first arrived on the market, late 2014. I enjoy testing Alexa, whenever I visit him at his home, against Google and Siri. Clearly Alexa needs questions asked in a very certain format. She does surprise on occasion with precise answers to questions like her exact age and the distance from earth to the moon.
Lucinda Williams is beyond brilliant by any metric in the singer/songwriter category. Songwriting skills, lyrical content, performance, rock and roll performance muscle, choice of sideman musicians. Find me a stronger performer in any of the aformentioned categories and they will find a home on Durham Cool.
Why do we love Eddie Vedder’s voice so much? Easy answer, the guy can sing. Men and women alike sense it, the primordial baritone hits the reptile brain like a direct shot of adrenaline. Nothing compares.
Got a point n shoot camera in 2006 as a gift. Joined Flickr in April of that year. I kept upgrading as I learned more, but my images didn’t necessarily improve. It doesn’t seem that long ago, but cameras are everywhere now and they weren’t quite so ubiquitous as they are these days (Oct. 2014). My shooting remains as erratic as my organization

Tinting/painting is done with watercolor, pastel pencils, oil pencils, and inks.
When you have a 7 year live website dedicated to all things Durham Cool, eventually you end up with a photo essay entitled, “Oak Canopy Study in 4”. You do this not out of boredom or a slows new’s day filler, rather because your heart is fully open to such a quotidian living beauty, oft overlooked by all but the pair of playful squirrels who entertain us each evening at 5:26 pm.

SINGER, SONGWRITER, PRODUCER & AUTHOR JOE HENRY comes to Duke Performances for a unique three-day residency, featuing a talk at the Nasher Auditorium about his artistic predecessors, an intimate chat at SoundPure Studios about his songwriting and recording process, and culminating in the debut of his new album, Thrum, in concert backed by a full ensemble. Don’t miss this opportunity to look inside the creative process of one of American music’s essential living artists.
I’ve wanted to collaborate with Shirlette Ammons for a while now and Tamisha Waden has been singing with the Guitarheels for a few years, not to mention her work with The Foreign Exchange and her solo career. I had a song idea that worked to all of our collective strengths so we threw it together for y’all. Pay what you want and know that all proceeds will be going to Blackspace, a social/cultural/afrofuturist space where Durham youth learn everything from beat making to video editing and film making.
The reason Tedeschi Trucks is coming up again is due to the tremendous talent down to each member of this band and the fact the Durham Cool team loves this band! One could confidently say this about several other seasoned live bands who tour routinely and regularly yet this band, fronted by two outstanding superstar leaders, is something else!

The documentary visually explores monastic life, with insights from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals read by actor Benedict Cumberbatch. The film received its world premiere at the 2017 South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in March.

Bantu Stephen Biko (18 December 1946 – 12 September 1977) was a South African anti-apartheid activist. Ideologically an African nationalist and African socialist, he was at the forefront of a grassroots anti-apartheid campaign known as the Black Consciousness Movement during the late 1960s and 1970s. His ideas were articulated in a series of articles published under the pseudonym Frank Talk.

The Roman Spring is a Triangle, NC – based five piece, concocting dreamy, Americana tinged pop: think Band of Horses meets R.E.M., with a dash of Ryan Adams.After the demise of his rock outfit Colourslide, singer/songwriter Alex Lawhon decided to start a new band using some of the area’s best musicians:“I envisioned The Roman Spring to be much more than a solo project,” states Lawhon, “ I wanted it to be a band, but with an open door policy …
How do we forgive? Forgiveness is not a natural part of our culture in the west, yet we do have spiritual context for this critical life exercise. Easier said than done in our puritanical “blame” culture.

Many meditation techniques are about quieting your mind by concentrating on your breath, a candle, music, drumbeat and countless other practices. Open Heart Meditation is a guided meditation that helps in strengthening and cleansing the spiritual heart naturally. Participants often feel lighter and more refreshed in a very short amount of time. Although this can be very deep and revitalizing, this is not a serious meditation practice that involves hard work, creative visualizations or any sort of effort whatsoever. No special skills are necessary. Properly done it feels light, gentle, peaceful, effortless…and fun!

When I first moved to Durham I was a vegetarian who missed the taste of certain meats. The meat replicants or analogs in vegetarian processed foods frequently contain another poison to me, gluten wheat or seitan made of wheat.
Soundtrack for my 80s period experienced in the 1980s, Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt, of Everything but the girl. This track alone is good enough to sum up the fervency of adolescence. If this is your first go then welcome to my UK youth. Does anyone else remember the first time you put this Cd on? Incredible! The baseline on this track alone, and then Tracey’s plaintive, cuts right to the core of you, vocal. No one today is close to this. Try it on for yourself.
By now, readers of Durham Cool have correctly ascertained that the Durham Cool team are big fans of Tadeschi Trucks Band. Anyone reared in the good Southern rock/blues/Jazz fusion of Allman Brothers must follow this band. Derek Trucks is on everyone’s top guitarist list for good reason. Susan’s vocals amd blues guitar prowess is legendary. This band live, dynamic!
What I found interesting about watching this husband-and-wife duo front this well fleshed out band was their mutual respect and telepathic, “sub lingual” conversation. Great musical partners often have these qualities. Watch closely and I think you’ll notice what I noticed, love and affection.

The Great Stupa of Dharmakaya Which Liberates Upon Seeing is located at the Shambhala Mountain Center in Colorado, USA. It was built to inter the ashes of Chogyam Trungpa, who died in 1987. In many Buddhist traditions it is common to build a stupa to honour a respected teacher after their death.
Ignorance might be bliss but only for a short time. Imagine the positive impact a greater general knowledge of the natural world might have with our National climate change discussion? How might this increased awareness influence our decisions about finite resources and fragile eco-systems? Right now our planet is at a critical juncture. It is past time overdue to seek out verifiable, scientifically supported, factual information about our current climate crisis. This is not an issue we can leave in the exclusive domain of career corporate politicians.

A visit to NYC in June 2015, brings us Hoagy Carmichael’s I get along without you very well sung, in English, by Silvia Perez Cruz. A standard from the American songbook. My favorite version is by the urivalled Ella Fitzgerald. Many fans like Barbara Streisand’s rendition.
This morning I started surfing YouTube in search of other orchestral arrangements of this song performed with Caetano Veloso. I found several comparable to this live to film version feautured below, from Pedro Almodovar, and then a new discovery of this young singer from Spain.
It’s here. We’re announcing our plans to create a new type of “university” and lifestyle for people who don’t want their kids growing up in an obsolete industrial-age system. But this is more than just for our children, it’s an attempt to change how we live, grow and develop, no matter if you’re 17 or 70. It’s a re-imagining of college, campus, curriculum and community for a new age.

I’m so proud and excited to kick off our US tour this week as we head south. It feels wonderful to be back on the road (we just had a ball on a hop in the UK with Jerry Douglas’s Transatlantic sessions) and I am looking forward to some wide open adventures on stage and off. I’m really proud of where the show is right now, so I hope you can make it out. Most importantly, thank you to all of you for your cheering and support of Stitch of the World. The record was not an easy record to write, and I am profoundly touched that it has been welcomed so kindly into the world. As ever, much goodness to you and yours from my house.

Dalai Lama, simple wisdom
There is a much easier way to resolve a complicated problem than attacking it straight on. This applies to problems wherein you do not have an immediate and easy solution. Some problems require a diversified group effort to resolve. Think like a sea otter all day today.

Nothing approximates the taste of Bagels and lox with capers, and a red onion slice. This combo can not be replicated in a vegetarian analog. The fundamentals of culinary art, sweet and savory in perfect balance. Saline and sugar, the Yang and the Yin. You must try this before you leave your body. May not be consumed alone. Must enjoy with friends and family. A weekend repast, preferably on Sunday with the fattest newspaper on the table. New York Sunday Times will do in a pinch.

Important personal testimony from Oil executive son.
When Dua Lipa was in primary school, she bombed an audition for the choir. “My voice is so low that sometimes when I try to do high notes, nothing but air comes out,” she says. That didn’t deter her from pursuing a music career: At age 15, she moved by herself to London (where she grew up) from Kosovo (where her family had relocated a few years earlier) to attend theater school.
If the United Nations’ General Assembly convened at Studio 54, Ibibio Sound Machine would easily be that night’s headlining act. This octet fuses ecstatic African highlife music and pulsing disco beats with British singer Eno Williams’ folktales of her Nigerian heritage, which she delivers in the country’s native Ibibio tongue.
I listened to this SoundCloud, shared by emcheren this morning. The universe is working with us today. Think of the divide in our country, your workplace relationships, families, your neighbors? This interview from On Being with Krista Tippett may go along way towards bridging or at the very least healing the gaps, differences between us.

This is Durham Cool, ain’t it? We know George sang the socks off this one, in part due to his affection and affinity with Elton. What a bright light we lost in George. Pure soul singer who belted from the heart every time.
Recently we published an article about Treadmill desks on Durham Cool, written by my sister in law, Heather Langan. January is the “do or die” manifestation month for your New Year’s resolution. One’s normative experience with resolutions is they appear in the well-intentioned mind on New Year’s eve and disappear quickly into the lost dryer machine sock ether the next month. It takes an Army of life coaches to keep you honest on your commitments. Only the best households with plenty of Facebook photographic evidence to show for it, keep their New Year’s Eve commitments. What about the rest of us? A new habit takes at least 30 days to take hold, right? We have all heard this before.
Yesterday 78 animals were adopted, and there is already a line forming outside this morning of people hoping to adopt an animal today. It’s beca

Fever dreams that wake DT in the middle of the night with something like the DTs are ones featuring Tina Fey. Uber smart, articulate, faster witted than he, Tina Fey! They have YOU by the short hairs and you almost realize it’s your own fault. Better to sit back, hands tied behind your back, enjoy the humor than to scorn the well earned criticism. Please no more tweets at 3AM about Nuclear weapons. Beyond the pale where presidential temperament is concerned. This cannot be the NEW NORMAL for very long as it could very easily lead us all into Armageddon toots sweet.
The Style Council were an English band formed in 1983 by Paul Weller, the former singer, songwriter, and guitarist with the punk rock/new wave/mod revival band The Jam, and keyboardist Mick Talbot, previously a member of Dexys Midnight Runners, The Bureau and The Merton Parkas. The band enabled Weller to take a more soulful direction with his music.

Got to go back, Van Morrison’s first track on the No Guru, no method, no teacher release. This is a track I listen to when I am immersed in the creative process. This Van release is oft overlooked and less familiar to some. This album is as full as Astral weeks, birthed of course, from the womb of Astral. You must purchase this CD for your beach and or mountain trips from Durham. No better soundtrack than this for the pastoral drive, sorting laundry, washing dishes.
Coltrane fans are familiar with the beautifully sublime, Naima, from the Giant Steps album.
Listen to this outstanding performance by the band, sans Robbie Robertson, recorded in 1983. Do you know anyone else who sounds like Rick Danko? What a plaintive crooner, in the best sense. No one better.

Sundays I reserve for morning meditation and reading on Spiritual subjects. Today was no exception, with meditation followed by a chapter from the Joy of Living, by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. The chapter I read today was Compassion the Survival of the Kindest. The section that resonated with me may help you heal the divide or difference between you and another:

One truly interesting phenom this year was the rise of Megyn Kelly. It is a credit to Megyn Kelly’s tenacity to stand her rightfully earned ground in the face of an active campaign to undermine her authority as a reporter.
You wake up one day and realize you have reached 50 years on this planet. This is the day you truly wake to the morning with “realization”. Awake. What a luxury! Alive, at last. Time to walk out into the yard, robe on, barefoot into the wet grass. Alive, at last. Look at the golden orb rising in the pinkest pale blue sky; wisps of young clouds parting?

Dalai lama discusses president Trump and impersonates him.
Citizens have many rights, but rights have limits. For example,
you are free to speak your opinion. Yet it is against the law to shout “Fire!” in a public place if there is no fire. Rights come with responsibilities. Every citizen has responsibilities. Laws explain our responsibilities. Obeying laws is an important responsibility. A person who breaks a law may go to jail. However, if a law is unfair, citizens can change it. Adult citizens have many responsibilities. They may serve in the military or on a jury. They also have the responsibility to vote. Citizens vote to choose leaders. Sometimes they vote about changing laws. Citizens need to learn about the issues and then vote. Their opinions will not count if they do not vote.”
When we turn to this wisdom during this difficult time of disunion peace and healing is uncovered.
Difficult as it may be we must effort to fight the noble fight for joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, generosity, truth, compassion even and especially with those who have harmed us.
One very important quality of leadership is the ability to exercise restraint in the interest of civility. Appealing to the higher instincts, present in all human beings, rather than pandering to baser impulses. We know from history what happens when leaders appeal to the most animalistic desires, sublimated in the human psyche. One need only conduct a brief study of (choose your Fascist) to see how this happens.
The volunteer, pictured above, arrived after working a 7 PM to 7 AM nursing shift at Duke Hospital. She said she could give us an hour. We were grateful. At the end of her shift, we learned that she was five days into life as a citizen of the United States of America. This was to her an important act of citizenship.
If you live in the South and or call yourself a southerner and Do Not Know this song, shame on you or your circle of influence. It’s not too late for you as you have an uncle named Durham Cool who cares enough to share, John Prine’s Angel from Montgomery classic.
“Midnight in Harlem” from the best band touring right now. You have to get out and see them when they come to your town. No matter how young or old this is what live music is all about. Her voice, his slide….. The back up vocalists, Hammond-B3 Keyboardist. Did I mention the horn section, dual drummers, and sublime bassist?
This low thunder quiet Fall September evening is pregnant with my earliest Durham NC memories. When I arrived here in October 1995 my brother and me along with mutual friends would drive down to Raleigh to catch a show at the Brewery. 70 was the route we took. This evening, coming back from a training class on Millbrook and Creedmoor in Raleigh I was reminded of those evenings. Many that know me well also know that I have not been uber keen on Durham lately. This drive home changed something deep within me. I fell in love with Durham again.
My dad is not perfect. No human being is perfect. My dad grew up in Scranton, PA in a humble home. His father was a barber who kept his shop in the basement of their Myrtle Street home. Life was not easy for dad and his 4 siblings. Alcohol was a catalyst in the levity and Irish working class violence in their family home.
