Worm Holes on the Net

I don't remember where I saw this pic but I thought that it was pretty interesting.

Ever since I was about 12 years old, I was a fan of Manet and the impessionists, this is one of my favorite paintings of his. I painted this once and had it hanging at our house in New York State. I still like this work it has a lot of emotion.

What's this Martian Glaciers

I saw this photo on the JPL site that is flow indicated Glaciers on Mars that may be covered with dust so they don't glow like those on Earth. I thought Mars was just a dust bowl waiting for the next Genesis Project to bring it to life.

I have not posted anything here in some time but wanted to start again one thing that I found profoundly moving today was a piece I was reading on Charles Moore a photographer that captured some of the most outrageous scenes in the 1960's struggle for liberty, justice, and equality, and all the rights outlined in the Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution.

As time goes by there will not be many people that remember those days, lets hope that it remains for the best and not the worst, and those people that are able to capture and record history serve to remind us the chaos we created for ourselves with our bigotry, ignorance and arrogance that still has such deep impact on America today. So many people have died both white and black in this struggle and this was 20 years after World War II when you thought we would have learned what horrors bigotry can bring on the world. I looked at the photos published today on NPR by Charles Moore and the pictures speak for themselves but I still fear that those viewing them will not have some disdain for hatred.

Wonderful World

I have been lucky enough in my life with such a wonder wife and family and friends.
I am looking out my rear window at the pine lands of New Jersey and the snow covered fields that lead to the pine horizon with it's scattered maze of entrance ways to its somber wakening of natures silence and still. This morning we were playing Louis Amstrong's it's a Wonderful World
and all I can say is, since I found Nerva it has been nothing but Wonderful.

If I could only paint what my heart desires, my hands long to put on paper, and my mind asks me to do.

I have been meaning to start this Observer's Journal. So much is gained by just observing the environment and have passion for the way that these dimensions work together to provide such amazement. On and off I have been talking about Fractals, God's math for the the visually impaired, it's everywhere but yet no one sees it. It sings out to us in the trees, grass, and flowers, rock formations, in our hands and veins. It reaches up to touch the dwarf stars rays that turns the sky blue and the clouds white. The light makes it sing everywhere with a unified song this is the key.

This interwoven fabric of life, all that holds us together is the key to matter itself.
I have been nearly blind all my life, but that impressionistic world gave me not the sharpness and clarity but the ability to see the unfocused watercolor views.
