Today's Daily Poem

Leading

I walked along the hollow road for twenty-seven days,

The sky was screaming out, bellowing loudly,

r a i n d r o p s f e l l

Upon my scorched head.

My hair had fallen out

No

The buzzards tore it from my scalp.

Brown; curly; frizzy from the humidity; dry from the sea.

Like Samson losing strength from lost identities new identities all the same to me.

The buzzards tore it from my scalp

To feed their insatiable hunger

the one brought forth when they were born

without a choice in wanting, doing only as they:

do; did; have done; will do; always :::

c a n

y o u

h e a r

m e ?

I find myself

talking to myself

about that day, lost along the hollow road for twenty seven days.

Leading

and following all the same, all for me, both encompassed in a memory,

fading like the burnt scalp of yesterday.

The buzzards still with me, encircling me forever.

Today was a day like any other. Since I am in my last year of law school, I am working furiously to finish up all of my requirements, pass all of my classes, and begin to think about employment after passing the bar. One of the major graduation requirements that my law school has is called an advanced research paper. This is required to be roughly 30 pages on a single area of law, and should be a robustly developed topic that has not previously been the subject of extensive scholarly work. Many students choose to complete this requirement in conjunction with another class, so as to kill two birds with one stone. I am in that camp. However, this limits the legal topic to one that can be reasonably related to the specific subjects of the class.

I was fortunate enough to enroll in a seminar course discussing various historical issues around the 14th Amendment. For those who don't know much about the United States or our Constitution, the 14th Amendment "addresses citizenship rights and equal protection under the law and was proposed in response to issues related to former slaves following the American Civil War" (Wikipedia). The Amendment is made up of five sections, and my research paper will be focusing on section one. Specifically, it will be focusing on the "citizenship clause" of section one of the 14th Amendment.

The reason I bring this up today is that I have been working on my outline for the paper, and am supposed to meet with my professor mentor in the upcoming week to discuss my progress on the paper. While I cannot say that I have made as much progress as I was hoping, I should have at least the bones of an outline with research notes and sources finished by the end of the week.

If anybody here is interested in hearing more about this process, feel free to let me know, and I will try to put together a post that goes into certain aspects of the 14th Amendment. However, because of it's complicated history, I will likely only be able to give a cursory overview.

I was not going to write anything about crypto today until I saw a post on noise.cash by @technicallyproduct about the huge pump today in the price of PRE. As somebody who has been running a Presearch node for a little over a week, I am of course very excited at the attention the project has been receiving lately. One update that I have learned regarding starting a Presearch node is that now, because of the large interest in running nodes, the minimum amount of PRE you need to stake in order to receive node rewards will be increasing from 1000 to 2000 on October 8th. So, if anybody is interested in starting a node, you only have a few more days before the cost to do so will double.

In Conclusion

That's all I have for you today. I will continue to try and follow my goals, and hope everyone who comes upon this article has a wonderful day.
