For your consideration: 2 photos of blue yonder taken at the same moment, closely similar. The 1st contains an airplane headed southeast. Lookie:
As space-time metric increases ( universe expands) the universal MOMENT affects us too. Our minds, in that moment, are fed by every tributary. Do we perceive time as a navigational aid in experience of that one and only moment?
Universe began with an explosion, big bang out a notch in nothing. I'm now hard of hearing because I sat too close to it. You?

I'll take an angel waving at me anytime! Great capture ~ LOL! Take care, my friend!ReplyDelete
Thanks Louise! I've always counted Angels among the friendlier enigmas of our "trainride". You take care too, dear one. You're important to me.Delete
Dear Bruce, your interrogative repeats scriptural Logos. In the beginning was the WORD. I believe it was "WHAT?". So I return to times gone by, when my kids were little. One would say "what?". The other would answer with a hug and say "That's What Butternut!" --Consider yourself hugged.Delete
Could the ringing in my ears be residual of the big bang, or perhaps the sound of expansion of the universe, certainly the speed it occurs must leave a wake of some perception. Great photo by the way!ReplyDelete
Dear Tom, I conveyed your compliment to the photographer, who was tickled. I teased an angel out of it. Our Universe is (according to Ed Hubble 100 years ago) expanding at 45 miles per second per parsec --in all directions. Hubble's constant has been modified many times, but his guess was close enough to justify a panpsychic wake for our navigation through the huge, single ongoing moment and wake of creation.Delete
Read this 4 times, still can't come up with a response. Nice photo, though. When entropy reverses, and the jump shot that I was fouled on in 1964 is reversed, I'll come up with something.ReplyDelete
Dear Mike, in '64, my school would play (one game per annum), faculty vs. students, on donkeys. I loved Donkey Basketball and am still a Hick. Basketball got serious later on, but I missed the donkeys. Their sense of spacial herd separation furnished a negentropic element into the game, eliminating interference or tricky dribbling etc. They imposed order upon a disordered system, like physicians. Relayed your compliment to photographer. Thanks Mike.Delete
Love the angel. I once accidentally captured a picture of a fairy. My family members who saw it also saw a fairy. Shortly thereafter my hard drive failed. Coincidence?ReplyDelete
Dear Emma, glad you like computer genrated angel. My friend Alan first showed me a print of a a possible fairy lounging under a pretty mushroom in 1967. It was fully dressed and had lace wings. Its clothes and cap matched the mushroom pileus. My own experience with fantastic little ones began a few years before that --hopefully available via the copy-click url over this reply--is a matter of memory and stealthy observation. This is pre-computer animation; it is wood carving, which shows how far our perceptions have come. If overhead url doesn't work, as has been happening lately,

Such a different feel from almost completely similar photos.ReplyDelete
Well done, Geo (and Norma). You're quite the complementary, complimentary duo.
Love and wellness, my friend.
Dear Robyn, So glad you caught me before bedtime. I'm always amazed at airplanes, eagles, owls or angels over conifers. I guess we all, in dreams, smile and take to the sky. Let's wave to each other as we pass by. Love and wellness to you too, dear friend.Delete
Dear Geo., I prefer the angel-photo; seems that the golden angel waves his right arm at us - his huge right wing then is seen beneath . Compliments to Norma to be there at the right moment and to have the faith to trust her eyes and click again on her camera. Realism contra romanticism - as I said: I prefer the last one (though with a strong foundation in the first, otherwise one might start floating).ReplyDelete
I hope that you and Norma are well and have a good time!
Dear Britta, Norma's photos have always delighted me because they get me doodling, on paper or computer, and thinking about details and observables that would otherwise escape me.Delete
Norma is well. I am a sort of ambulatory wreckage. However, we both treasure life as you do. Thank you,dear Britta. I will comment on your site soon as distractions permit. Love from both of us.
Dear Geo., I know that you are interested and thus it is not necessary to comment - you are there, and that is enough! I am happy to hear that Norma is fine, and quite unhappy to hear of your state of health. Hopefully the angel in Norma's photo will carry some waves of good wishes to you, energy and empathy.Delete
Dear Britta, your comment lifted my spirits on an important family day. 8th August was the birthday of Norma's and my mothers. Both ladies are gone now, but we owe much of our happiness to their care in raising us. When Norma and I married, our mothers became great friends.Delete
My almanac says a northwesterly angel bodes well for a fruit harvest - we didn't have one here and the plums have been ruined by greenfly, alas. But we have been busy on our land where there will be sloes and blackberries in abundance. Many ferns too - I will post up a picture one of these days! Sending love xxReplyDelete
Dear Lisa, Your land-stewardship sounds exciting and promising --looking forward to pictures. Due to strange weather this spring and summer, we've got new plums only an inch wide dropping off the trees. No greenflies but big, mean raccoons come at night to eat them off the ground and growl at me when I step outside. I try not to alarm them but carry a stick! Love appreciated and reciprocated.Delete
Geo...are you announcing a new season of "LOST"? Angel sightings bring glad tidings, I heard.ReplyDelete
Dear Consigliere, any season of "Lost" would be new to me. However, I intend to watch it soon. But yes, I've sometimes encountered angels on this planet. No visible halos or prominent feathered scapulae but angels nonethe less. And, yes, they bring quiet joy in times of need.Delete
I don't seem to have any comment on angels, but I am surely interested in how you and Norma and the rest of your family are doing. I read of the fires in your region and hope you are safe. The world seems a precarious place at the moment, but I find meaning and comfort in family and friends - as do you, I believe. Take care, my friend.ReplyDelete
Dear Jenny, 1st decade of this century gave us drought. 2nd gave us disorganized seasons on top of that. Result is California burning down even more vigorously than ever. I'm surprised any combustibles are left. Right now we are getting briefed on recall of Governor Gavin Newsom, part of a national power-grab by a rabbid GOP. Happened years ago to Gray Davis but Kennedys sent Schwarzenegger, a skilled GOP centrist, to absorb Republican votes. He did a good job. He also kept Darell Issa's well-financed movement from obtaining. Yikes, I've run on, but Jenny please understand: my beloved state is both burning and being attacked by political piracy --and uh, I got rear-ended in traffic today. Yes, family, friends, your caring, get me through. Indeed, "family & friends", you take care too!Delete
I love how the message in the sky changes from the prospective. Kind of like life, religion, and hindsight.ReplyDelete
Dear Juli, the message in the sky combined with our determined arts and hopes reflects a love of life, belief in meaning and memory. We learn function and purpose --in the infinite moment of the universe.Delete
