new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

remember carl.

he would have been 75 years old.

a couple of days ago, james randi spoke about how, after we'd lost carl sagan, he'd pick up the phone to call him. and then realize he couldn't.

i'm feeling that now, as i lost my mother three weeks ago. i want to pick up the phone too.

i often reflect about how lucky we are to be alive and how wondrous our cosmos is. but lately i haven't been feeling it.

then i found this podcast... an interview with ann druyan and nick sagan via nick's blog.

and it hit me more intensely than usual.

'it is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.'

the interview starts at around 00:22.
