Bosch, one of Amazon Prime’s most popular original series, is back for its 7th and final season, and it’s clearly up to its consistently interesting topic-charged story line!
I didn’t even list it as 5 stars yet, though it clearly is, because 1) this is episode 1 of 8, and, it might blow the top off the 5 star rating – I say that having watched, binge watched with Sheila each of the previous seasons as they came out, and some, several, still stick in our minds in terms of storyline, drama, and – my point here finally in this post, lol! – message.
Now clearly, no one in episode one is saying that H.R.1, the For the People Act voting rights bill, is currently at stake in our U.S. Congress – but confluence of issues in the very 1st episode strikes deeply into current affairs – immigration, drugs (mis)use, gender and, with those few words ’bout 2/3 thru Episode 1 – “Everybody counts or nobody counts” – hits one of the most vital and probably turning points pieces of legislation since, in my lifetime, probably the 60s. Though I’ll admit, what one experiences in adolescence is typically uber-magnified in one’s estimate of what were/are the most important political events in one’s lifetime 😊
Meanwhile, here’s a link to the trailer – https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B0958QPKTM/ref=atv_dp_season_select_s7
If you’re a Prime Member, then Bosch is already included to see now!
And I’ve written more than a bit about the value, and necessity, of a Voting Rights bill that helps fulfill the promise in our Constitution, plus I doubt there’s many folks that haven’t made up their mind yet whether we should all have a fair chance to vote, so I’ll leave it at that, for now anyways 😊
And thankfully, many shows on TV are speaking to injustices of all sorts, from Bull to New Amsterdam 🙏
Beyond that, Bosch itself is just great entertainment – hard combination to beat ❤️
Whether he’s a canary or not, lol!
Enjoy everyone! There’s folks with real stories to tell on TV! 💕
ps – Sheila & I discovered Bosch ’bout 3 years ago (last time we could travel to Vermont actually) and we happened to have our Amazon Fire Stick with us & used it to surf Prime for stuff to watch when it was too late to go out; we ended up binging the 1st 3 seasons before we left, lol! 😊
ps ps – if u’d like to know ways to support H.R.1 For the People Act, my Google search here has lots of suggestions –

- October 23, 2021 – New #Acrylic Upload @FineArtAmerica – Mother and ChildIt’s been quite a development for this painting, growing from an idea of a previous work with a less defined at the time unrealized depiction of a younger and older person. Probably the most important development is my own realization of that development, lol! Frankly, though I often saw a realization-glimpse of that sort even from my 20s about my art, and maybe as a child, I literally blew it off and kept on going 😊
- October 22, 2021 – A Day With the 8 Year Old = Painting His Wooden Sword for Halloween, Circling the Trailhead to Barton Creek Greenbelt, Visiting Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Celebrating Veterans Art at the Old Bakery & Emporium, and Watching Big Hero 6 on Disney+!!!This post is long on pictures, mostly because it was a long day from getting up to getting back to bed, lol! But what a good day it was ❤️ Here’s hoping this long post of pictures brings a similar good feeling! First up, above, is a special project Max has had his heart on, re-creating a magical sword he sees and experiences using in one of his video games – Zelda Breath of the Wild! All part of his progressing Halloween costume….
- October 21, 2021 – Delivering New Art to the Old Bakery and Emporium (across from the State Capital) Austin, Texas – 3 Piece Floral Set and 1 Autumn 6×6, all #WatercolorsDespite my many gripes about living in Austin, Texas, there’s of course a handful of things I do like. Among them is the opportunity the city makes for artisans 50 or older living in the Austin area to show their creative work. I’ve been fortunate to have some sales, and am very grateful to be able to replenish my inventory with the paintings above.
- October 20, 2021 – Sold! At the Old Bakery and Emporium (across from the State Capital) Austin, Texas – Paris Dreams (Dreaming of Paris)I’m very grateful to my buyer at the Old Bakery & Emporium in Austin Texas! 🙏 With as few months as the Old Bakery’s been reopen, and all the precautions needed to be taken recently here in Austin, it’s a miracle to be able to share my art a this time 💕
- October 19, 2021 – Turning 71 Feels Like Turning on the Spigots!I’ve meandered around what to write for my birthday post this year, probably reflecting not exactly the chaos (though there’s enough of that, lol!) but the whirl of activity in my life right now – fitness activities, art – of all kind, family, and the stutteringly slow but certain shift from unbearable 6 month summer in Austin to, well, breathable walkable art-doable weather ❤️ Weatherman says the weekend days’ highs into my birthday (Tuesday) are the coolest temps since mid-April. That’s a very long time, lol! 😅
- October 18, 2021 – A Good Problem, Lots of Interesting Pics and Posts Developing in My Blog Pipeline! Part 3, 1st Completed Work of 5 – “Playtime, Mother and Child”I’m also breaking a bit of tradition in terms of my routine and going ahead and posting my completed image, not as good a resolution etc as I’d like (yet), and also not yet uploaded to Fine Art America. It’s simply a time choice. Paint and create. Or paint less but massage the photo capture & upload to FAA more. It’s not really a win-lose thing.
- October 17, 2021 – My Most Viewed Image For a 2nd Week @FineArtAmerica, Abstract Study 1, #watercolorThough I’ve had some of my images repeat a 2nd week or more, or return again after awhile to place top of my views for the week at Fine Art America, it’s still rare for an abstract of mine to do so. It’s sorta ironic for me, since I began painting in earnest in the 80s creating acrylic abstracts (after fooling around doing clouds and Dali-ish dripping clocks in my 20s 😊), and then….
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
