Default Three Reflections

I just found this today...

the painting is stunning...as are her words

Three Reflections | The Weblog of Marabeth Quin


"The older I get, the more I realize that there are different ways that I look at things, sometimes incongruent with the others, and sometimes going on simultaneously, giving life a rather schizophrenic feel. Of course, I have developed a particular favortism for some of these perspectives and have been attempting to see the world through the eyes of the more positive perspectives as the evidence is piling up that these vantage points direct me toward the things I truly want.
So I guess it stands to reason that as these favorable qualities become apparent in my more positive outlooks, the disadvantageous qualities of my more negative views also come to the fore and make it clear that when I am seeing the world through those eyes, nothing in my landscape is holding the things that I want. But it has taken me years to realize this, because what I never knew was that there are two parts to every subject–the subject itself, and the lack of it; and for many years I would look out from my negative point of view and think that I was seeing all of the things I dreamed of (albeit usually far off and frustratingly elusive), but what I was actually seeing was the lack of them. The amazing thing is that once I realized this, I really expected my whole psyche to transform and for my positive vantage points to take over and drive the vehicle, so to speak;....."

A man moved to a mountain top to get rid of the hustle and be alone. One day he heard a knock at the door and no one was there but then he looked down and there sat a snail and it said "it is quite cold out here can I come in?" the man shouted "NO why don’t you all understand I want to be alone!" and he kicked the snail down the mountain. One year later there was a knock at the door and no one was there and then he looked down and there again sat a snail and it said, "What did you do that for?"

Default Higgs Boson found - The God particle

I have been following this for almost 10 years now...

I cannot believe it, but this is amazing really!!!

This is HUGE...

http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2013...cle.html?_r=2&

I remember reading about this in Scientific American..
reading about the LHC
about Atlas, ALICE and CMS

The amount of data that the collisions generated is astounding, but the genius was how they managed to disseminate that data around the world, and then get it into the hands of people who could find the patterns and interpret it
...and in only a few years

This is exciting

Download Pandora http://www.pandora.com

Add 'new station'

type "Clair De Lune Radio"


It's not classical, which was what I was originally looking for, but great music (not often heard on the radio).

"Someday, I'd like a little brother," said a boy to his friend.

"There's only so much you can blame on a dog."

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I turned to god, only as a last depart measure, because nothing else had really helped like I had hoped.

Thankfully,...he did not turn away.
