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.

star trek as shuttle bookends

star trek expresses the heart of humanity's common drive to explore space.  it was there before the shuttle, it'll be there long after the shuttle.

i keep reading about the death of the space age -- no way.  we can't rest... we're explorers, and no government bureaucrats can keep us down.

many thanks to trek movie for the video.


  1. I have the sinking suspicion that we are like the Chinese from centuries ago who destroyed their blue water fleet and closed down their iron works.

  2. live long and prosper.... lovely post!
