At the Sunrise Café...

... you can talk all night.  That's a photo by Meade, and if you look closely, you can see me out there on the Lake Mendota ice. Here's the picture of the sunrise I was taking: [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

"What's the avocado tree's name? (I have forgotten). It's looking pretty large."

Said MadisonMan, in the comments to the post with video of Meade grinding hard red winter wheat. Meade answered "Arthur" with a link to "Recurring features in Mad (magazine)" (Wikipedia), and then, later, took this picture of the tree and me.   I'm there, I suppose, for scale. The hat is not an affectation, but a needed shield for my eyes as I work in front of the big window, but it's funny to see it in the picture, because I just finished writing a post on the for the artist Barry Le Va, and...

I finally made it out to see the sunrise once again.

 Had not made it out since February 2. Just too cold! And I only need it to be feels-like 9° to be willing to do it. I've done these sunrise runs since September 2019, and — not counting when we were out of town — I'd only ever missed an occasional day, maybe 2 days once or twice. I think I've missed more days this February than in all the other time combined. Ah, well! I was happy to get out.  [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

"Joe is a healer, a uniter, a tested and steady hand, a person whose own experience of loss gives him a sense of purpose that will help us as a nation reclaim our own sense of purpose, and a man with a big heart who loves with abandon."

In that one crowded sentence, Kamala Harris — in her victory speech last night — stated the theme for Biden's presidency.  I see the laying-on-of-hands concept that we were talking about yesterday. Remember? The writer in The Atlantic — Franklin Foer — talked about Joe's "effort to heal... to wrap himself around others in mourning." He saw "something religious in this laying-on of hands... an act of communion." Because we are "desperate" and Joe is the "parental figure," what is required of us...

Meade votes... second in line.

He arrived about a half hour before the polling place opened. I was out doing my sunrise run, but I drove past the polling place on my way home. Didn't see many people. I think this is a neighborhood where people would tend to vote early, so the open spaces don't mean lack of excitement and are, of course, good for resisting COVID. If you're wondering what "Protected Count" means, it's just the total number of ballots that have ever been fed through that particular machine. The "Public C...

A clever (or puzzling) sign.

Photographed by Meade today. It's kind of hard to put it together, what with the disappearing "E." And once you see that "Bye Don," you have to wonder what exactly does it mean? To me, it's saying you're not really for Biden — you don't want that on you — but you just want to say "bye" to Donald Trump (who never gets called "Don," but... whatever).

A slightly woozy sunrise panorama.

By Meade. I am in this picture, by the way. Near that even harder to see red-hatted man. Click the image and click again to enlarge.A third click gets you even closer, and the look of the ripples in the water gives you some idea of how the Apple software stitches the photos together to make the panorama. It's some kind of complicated geometry. Can anyone explain it? [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

The Apple Store in Madison is chicly sculptural, boarded up in black.

In normal times, that black expanse is all sparkling clear glass. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

At the Trout Lily Café...

... you can talk about whatever you like.I was so pleased to see the wildflowers back in my favorite woods! The trout lilies have decided to grow in a way that we humans see as upside down. Meade got the idea to get underneath and photograph the flower from our idea of the front side (which let sky shine through): [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]
