Indulged my theological side playing with the outlines of a post-Christian religion for the Caucasian remnant. A riff on Gnosticism, with a polymodal basis.
Took my friend B out for his 70th birthday to his favorite dive by the ocean. My ex and my current came along. Oh, and his wolf-dog. Very low brow. But that's how he likes it. He's one of those blue collar snob types. Beautiful afternoon.
Stumbled on a story about the Cahokie mound builder civilization near St Louis. Echoes of the Aztecs, in the 1200s, human sacrifice and all. Pretty amazing.
Mr B and I are planning our Eastern Sierras trip for next week. :)
