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.

stephen hawking: there is no heaven or afterlife

at the guardian:

Q: you had a health scare and spent time in hospital in 2009. what, if anything, do you fear about death?

A: i have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. i'm not afraid of death, but i'm in no hurry to die. i have so much I want to do first. i regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. there is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.

    Of course there is a heaven! And there will be mountains of pilaf, rivers of milk and honey and every man, woman and child will have 72 virgins at their disposal!

    Great place for straight men and lesbians!
