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.

pale blue home

the view from the road leading to falasarna, and the title, a reference to pale blue dot:

pale blue home
like it? click it!i've placed this on flickr's map.

i read this this morning and it's had a terrible effect on me. it's one thing to have my personal suspicions, and quite another to see someone with serious credentials state them so publicly.

often, i feel like i'm watching a film documentary about what happened to those beings called humans who knew where they were headed, but did nothing to save themselves.

i posted a link on facebook...

anthony ayiomamitis said, it seems rather optimistic we will be gone so quickly. really a flash.

and scott said, a fate we don't exactly not deserve. ;-) i'm sure the dolphins will be glad to "get their life back."

ken suggested i watch earth 2100.

life is ubiquitous and tenacious on earth -- extremophiles have been found in the most hostile of places -- and it most probably will continue on, oblivious to our presence... or lack of it. some might say that it doesn't matter whether we're here or not... but that's not true. as carl sagan said, we are a way for the cosmos to know itself.

notice he said a way and not the way -- maybe one way of many populations of sentient beings, somewhere...

anyway, i'm all over the place with this.

here's carl, reading from pale blue dot:

and yet again, i offer das rad:

more of my images dedicated to pale blue dot.
