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.

astrology posts on facebook

i'm weary of seeing astrology posts on FB, especially now in the new year where people naively check their horoscopes. hundreds of years after the intellectual foundations of astrology were shattered, people still take it seriously.

'astrology survived and flourished. why? because it seems to lend a cosmic significance to the routine of our daily lives. it pretends to satisfy our longing to feel personally connected with the universe. astrology suggests a dangerous fatalism... if our lives are controlled by a set of traffic signals in the sky, why try to change anything?' - carl sagan


'the desire to be connected with the cosmos reflects a profound reality... for we are connected... not in the trivial ways that the pseudoscience of astrology promises, but in the deepest ways.' - again, carl sagan

ask me what sign i am. you will never, never, never get a straight answer. i don't pander to this... lunacy [pun intended].
