I’ve always had a problem with ‘-isms’ – communism, socialism, facism, capitalism, republicanism, you name it – because they all seem to miss the point about people. Homo Sapiens doesn’t give a flying fruit bat about politics until things go wrong. I was a kid in the late Menzies era of Australia [1949-1966], and I remember hearing some adults… Continue reading Politics – do we really care? Re-blogged from Meeka’s Mind

It is bad enough that the republicans in the US Congress are hard at work to pass their 2017 Donor/ Corporation tax cut bill around December 19, 2016, which does little to grow the economy; where the economy is on an upswing and unemployment numbers are low, where at least 1 trillion dollars will be added to the deficit; where… Continue reading Quoting Flip Wilson & a Post from Gronda Morin.
This is a poem I wrote nearly a year ago, inspired by a charming and fascinating site called Osseous Design: The Blog . I happened upon the site one day when surfing, and wrote the date 1-24-17, and name of the Blog at the top of my notebook page. Tracing back, I was able to find the unique site, with its creative … Continue reading a dream of dreams

“Pillars of Creation” – Photo by Hubble Telescope Secrets of creation hide deep in conflation Of science with faith, of corpus with wraith, Discrete bits of essence, immune from senescence, That mark each warm creature, or cold lifeless feature, Of all the known world, plus those unknown, thus hurled Through vastness of space, push-pulled in their chase By grave… Continue reading Beginnings, a poem re-blogged from Paul F.

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge has the theme of Structure, which has made me very happy, as there is lots of structure in Nature and the world around us. Sunday’s post focused on the structure of a fan structured leaf, with the angulation of each fold providing additional strength to the leaf over a rather large area. Today’s… Continue reading Delicate Structures, a reblog from jansenphotos “Dutch Goes the Photo.”

Our son’s been to stay recently. He has a PhD in physics, and I know absolutely nothing about physics, which means that he thinks in a very different way from me. He’s also a committed Christian who loves theology. We had a discussion one day about the place of logic, and how much it could help us discover truth… Continue reading DISCOVERING GOD, reblogged from Godschool Blog. Thanks DeaconGil!

🦋 Freedom of thought let no one disallow, The stuff of progress, true, thereof is made; No wholesome fruit is borne on broken bough, Nor truth survive if censure speech forbade; Thought with impunity precedes the word, Utterance of which to ownership commits; Denial, then, must surely be absurd, Lest to hypocrisy a fool admits; Inebriated hauteur can seduce, A… Continue reading Sunday Sonnet!

I recently read a study conducted in 1952. Reliability and the actual occurrence of the study even taking place was called into question, that it may just be a myth. Regardless the study enthralled me and mythical or not I enjoyed it. Here’s the gist of it. Scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropping them in the sand for the monkeys to collect. The… Continue reading The Hundredth Monkey (Re-blogged from Ellie’s Blog)
Math Time! I love math problems, but rarely solve them. The short video is interesting, think you will like it. 🙂 Sometimes the answer is right on the edge of my brain, although haven’t mastered the technique of really “getting it.” Continue reading Math is a human language (re-blogged from Simona Prilogan)

With the Golden State Warriors on the brink of winning the 2017 NBA Finals, there is one question I keep hearing. Is it fair to have so much fire-power on one team? Let’s not deal with the “what-ifs” and stick to the facts. The facts are Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green are on the… Continue reading The Great Debate, a re-blog

In love, at peace. Is it wrong to want alone. To not miss and not be missed. To want nothing and no one more. Liar people say, liar maybe. Refusing to acknowledge this internal commotion leads to dry eyes, as dry as the ocean. Liar you say, liar maybe. At times it gets lonely, at times of peace. My heart… Continue reading Alone…by poet Samartha Ingle, re-blogged from her site
(Here is a new-to-me site I found yesterday. I really like the site, theme and layout, and especially the content. This article on the inconsistencies and idiocracies of politics and the “will of people.” I really relate to what the author says., and the way in which she writes. I have written elsewhere about my personal experience with fear and sanitation of war back in … Continue reading The tyranny of fear, reblogged from “420 ways to reach the sun.”

O Butterfly, flap not your wings in Africa!

“I’ve got all I need. Me, a paper boat and lots of nuts. So there’s nothing to be afraid of.” The other day I was having daydreams in my huge beanbag. I thought it would be really funny if there’s a paper boat carrying loads of nuts and a happy, chubby and greedy squirrel. By the way I have a pet hamster myself and am… Continue reading [Why Nuts?] A look into the unique creative art of blogger I-Shan Lin…
