Observing Juneteenth

Observing Juneteenth Is Quite Nice

Yes, yesterday was actually Juneteenth, but it was a Sunday. Today, the 20th is when we’re observing it. Hence, I’m off work with pay – a rarity in my working life – and celebrating it. 😉

My First Juneteenth

My First Juneteenth As An Actual Holiday

This is not my first awareness of the Juneteenth “holiday.” Nor is it the first time I’ve raised a drink for it. With one of my wives being Black, I’ve been aware of the date and what significance it’s been held to have for well over 20 years. This is, however my first Juneteenth when it was an actually federally recognized and generally observed holiday. I’m even getting a day of with pay because of it!

Hence, I’m spreading the celebration of this day with a plethora of examples of why there was a serious and pervasive upside to the South losing their bid for independence and the Blacks being given their freedom and personhood.

The Dark Side Of The Moon – Sailor Moon That Is

Sailor Moon, both manga and anime, aren’t even in the top 100 of my favorites, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy some excellent and beautiful Sailor Guardian cosplay. And, insofar as I’m concerned, bonus points for their being Black babes, who are a rarity in White-Accessible cosplay venues.

Shoulder Cosmology

Shoulder Cosmology Of The Religious Sort
(Click to Enlarge)

Cosmology in the religious as opposed to the secular, anti-theist context, is the explanation of the origin, evolution, and eventual fate of the universe, from a more natural, religious perspective. It is also largely irrelevant to us mortals. Our personal cosmology is what we should be concerned about, not Creation’s.

So, rather than considering Heaven’s plan for creation, consider the state of your own soul and the angel and devil on your shoulders.

Of course, if you’re at all like me, you’re more likely considering how to get either your angel or your devil on both your shoulders. 😉

Good Morning, one and all! Here’s hoping that you have or have a good morning today, preferably one that started off similar to this. 😉 Oh! And do understand that chocolate goes great with your morning coffee!
