Last night I had a dream wherein I was in the home of a very dear friend of mine and while I was there I saw a small typewritten piece of art that said:
It is no secert that I love going to the gym. And I love to stay fit. In fact, I have loved making exercise a part of my adult life so much that I have hired my good friend to be my personal trainer for a second time.

Found a typewriter yesterday at the pawn shop. I’m often on the hunt for typewriters and adding this one to my collection was real sweet. Its the fourth one in my collection, and the eighth typewriter I’ve purchased.
It is a Sears typewriter, the model was made in Portugal, and its series is Chevron. I named it Thundertiger, the Typewriter of Tomorrow. Fun name for a fun colored typewriter. And the case that comes with it is cool too.
Took some of last night and today cleaning the typeset with rubbing alcohol and cuetips. There was some very old ink crusted on the characters and so I used a small copper brush to clear the gunk.
I also changed out the ribbon from the all black ribbon that came with it for the two toned ribbon I had lying around. It would seem like there is a measure of standardization when it comes to ribbons. The color change-over switch is a small wheel om the right hand side of the keyboard.
Anyway… Pretty cool typewriter, wouldn’t you agree?
Comments are welcome.
This was an awesome experience! I am grateful to have had the opportunity last week to support my friend Robyn Cohen and to learn about the amazing things that Ann Marie Wallace, and Anne Burkholder are also doing in the Salt Lake City community.
That being said, you are welcome to listen to the audio from the panel. Please excuse the low quality of the recording. When I recognized the opportunity for what it was, a chance to hear four women speak their expertise and authority, I set up my phone’s voice recorder on the table in front of them and prayed to the gods that it would be good enough. The content from this panel makes up for everything that my phone lacks.
So please, enjoy and be patient with the quality of the recording. The content of the recording was second to none.
The Knot I Am
a poem by Alixander
written in 2016
I am godly.
I am awake.
I am light.
I am beliefs.
Not a believer.
I am beginnings.
I am mine.
I am alpha.
I am alive
I am love.
Not in love.
I am a knot.
I am tied up in the fabric of the universe.
And will be until I come undone.
