Tuesday Interlude

 

I love this ethereal video made by Sarah Wickliffe (http://www.wickpix.com/)…with a poetic appearance by Neruda. Followed it up with a Cure chaser. Because, you know, the Cure.

 

Until we meet in other worlds, traveller.

 

 

The Voyage Begins…

Willow Croft

“Quantum Singularity is a voyage through time and space. This poetic journey crosses oceans, traverses other realms, gets lost in the past, and disappears into the future. Choose the right path; the path that leads to the corner of Cosmos and Infinity, and the way will never be lost.”

You are welcome to join me on my voyage through time and space.

Hope you enjoy the magic!

Lonely ghosts and an almost-full moon…

 

A very sensory, yet very surreal, week. Or mindset.

Things are both ambiguous and very clear. In mental limbo and yet absolutely certain about…well, see the secrets part below.

A inevitability from which there is no escape, and yet, a promise of a new beginning.

It’s a little maddening and frightening, but also soothing and comforting.

I’m frustrated and resigned at the same time. I’m believing in my instincts and dreams and signs but also practical about their impossibility in this dimension.

The moon is blue-bright and has been keeping me awake, but it’s not even full yet.

There’s lots of secrets, which are also revelations.

Some songs from the 90s are (uncharacteristically!?!?) the current soundtrack to my inner world. Out of nowhere I had this urge to listen to them.

I’m both running away and towards something, simultaneously. Distance, and closeness, all at once.

Nothing much seems to have a point right now, including this blog, yet I’m compelled to put words out there, even if they are trivial, unrelated, or don’t make any sense.

Watched a movie tonight titled “I Don’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore”.

Been wanting to give “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” a re-watch, and re-read Griffin and Sabine, but hesitated to take that literary/cinematic journey.

“Foolish man. You cannot turn me into a phantom because you are frightened. You do not dismiss a muse at whim.” – Sabine Strohem

It’s a small (shark) world…learn to share it, humans!

“Fish are friends, not food.”–Finding Nemo

For my sustainable Saturday post, I was inspired to make the topic sharks.

Partially because of a tweet I saw this morning, which had a Care2 petition to urge FedEx to stop shipping shark fins. (Sign it here.), and partially because I saw an ad for a show that yet again played up the shark’s reputation as a vicious monster.

And, it’s Shark Week, as I just realized, belatedly.

Growing up near the ocean (well, the Gulf of Mexico, technically) as a kid, we learned to be smart in the water. If we were stupid enough to ignore shark alerts, or go swimming at night–things like that–well, it was our own damn fault if something were to happen to us. There just seemed to be common-sense things that you did without question, especially in regards to animals and nature in general. Guess it was a different world?

Here’s some sites with statistics that highlight the odds that are stacked against sharks (and, what fascinating creatures they are).  Because we humans have much more of an impact on sharks and other creatures than they do against us. Nature is not the enemy, we humans are.
