I have a full day of posting for you today, readers, so make sure you check back often. Let's get things going with your morning Sift.
A- Soul of Miami has some Art Walk photos from Saturday night.
B- Sex and the Beach makes a move.
My life has been blessed by even more serendipity lately. This apartment -- the one I really wanted -- wasn't supposed to be vacant, but the previous tenant got a job in Chicago and had to bolt.C- South Florida Guy is covering this year's Renaissance Festival.
It was meant to be.
Live performance is a dying art along with live audience participation. I have never brought anyone with me who didn't enjoy the event. The men, woman, children, and creatures who perform at these shows likely work harder than you ever will. You just need show up and enjoy. If you still think this type of entertainment is not for you, I urge you to give your TV a rest, leave your excuses and comfort zone at home, and take the plunge. Who knows what magic you may find.D- The Chowfather warms up to My Ceviche on South Beach.
Fresh local fish, fresh local ingredients and fresh flavors at affordable prices are a winning combination in my book. Delivery is available and its the perfect take out place after spending the day on the beach and in the sun. Or say hello to my little bench friend.E- Bark Bark Woof Woof notes the unique political scene in Missoula, Montana, a place that has always intrigued me.
These students remind me of when I was in college, now some forty years ago. The issues were different; the war in Vietnam was still going on, the Cold War was a presence (we had all grown up with “duck and cover” and the fear of the Commies coming over the polar ice cap), but surprisingly, the same issues we talked about then are still a part of the dialogue today: a good job, equal rights, the environment, and putting our collective heads together to solve problems. And a lot of us, then as now, saw that government could be a force for good in the world despite the bad examples we had back then. We always believed that the next guy (and it was always a guy) would be the one to make the transformation.
