On And On We Go Rose Blossoms

We Are a Rose 5'' x 4'' detail  116ab Altered10jrr


Happy New Year Everybody!

I wish for only the bestest 4Yoo this 2012 and on and on . . .

One thing is certain.  2012 is the end of the world as we know it.  No doomsday calendar message here ha ha.  At every moment of every hour this world is done and born again.  On and on we bloom in awe.  On and on we bloom in all.  If you think your know who we are or when we are please guess again.


The image above was created via a mixture of ones, zeros and paint and pen.  The background is from one of my smaller paintings.  The text is a poem/song that I wrote. I poured it all into a Photoscape mixing bowl and stirred well.


No Limit?

Sept 29 09 006 edit cropI love it when things presumed to be constant, permanent and certain are discovered to be, well, inconstant, impermanent and uncertain.  One or two scientists may soon have to eat their boxer shorts on live national tv.  During 2011 the speed of light was revealed to be possibly not quite fast as things can go.

Albert Einstein was a pretty smart fellow and C was one of his letters.  E=MC2  But could Alberto have been wrong?  Could some speedy little neutrinos violate the speed limit of the universe?  Does God indeed play dice.  The law, Albert said, is that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.

“The scientists behind the experiments, who are part of the Oscillation Project with Emulsion Tracking Apparatus, or Opera, collaboration, had conducted more than 15,000 measurements over three years before announcing their results.

They used 10 microsecond long pulses of neutrinos in the initial experiment, but other scientists pointed out that this could be a potential source of error as the pulses were relatively long compared to the difference in time being measured.

In the new test they used shorter pulses of neutrinos, at around three nanoseconds, so they could time the arrival of the neutrinos with greater accuracy.

When the Opera team ran the improved experiment 20 times, they found almost exactly the same result.”

We shall see  . . .

Here is a dude sporting beard and glasses telling the tale..

Never the same river.  Never the same man.

Google the above if you are uncertain about the meaning.

  1. Hi John, thanks for your post.

    Sorry for the slow reply, been away from mail. Hello possible ancestral neighbour!

    I'll have a dig & see if I can find anything.
