The tag line I use for this feature is, “A roundup of news that caught my eye today.” But there wasn’t any news that caught my eye today. Sure…things happened and people wrote/talked about them. But when the biggest story of the day is a huge blowup about what CNN told a xenophobic reddit user, you can be pretty sure that nothing real significant happened.

So rather than roundup a bunch of quotes from stories that really don’t matter,  I’m going to give the whole thing a pass. We’ll all be much better served by doing things like checking on our garden. Here’s an update on those color bursts called Lantana:

This is the line that always grabs me:

There in this place
Where your arms unfold
Here at last you see your ancient face
Now you know
Now you know

There are tons of other things you could do—like make a really great meal or spend some time catching up with an old friend. Whatever you chose to do, enjoy! You’re not missing any news and we’ll all be back here tomorrow to catch you up.
