Little Black Mountain..... Pt. 1

Little Black Mountain .....Pt.3

Something to think about.....

ecocide (ˈiːkəˌsaɪd, ˈɛkə-)
— n
total destruction of an area of the natural environment, esp by human agency

Why does everyone always assume that? What am I doing? Am I harvesting farts? How much can I learn from an ass?

Meanwhile, wandering in the desert east of Groom Lake (Area 51)......

Strolling on, it seems to me that the strangeness
and wonder of existence are emphasized here,
in the desert, by the comparative sparsity of
the flora and fauna: life not crowded upon life
as in other places but scattered abroad in
spareness and simplicity, with a generous gift
of space for each herb and bush and tree,
each stem of grass, so that the living organism
stands out bold and brave and vivid against the
lifeless sand and barren rock. The extreme
clarity of the desert light is equaled by
the extreme individuation of desert life forms.
Lover flowers best in openness and freedom.

Titus RIP

My dog died this morning..... He has been part of the family for almost 14 years.....I going to miss that mangy Mut.....Shit

Sunlight streams through window pane onto a spot on the floor.....
then I remember,
it's where you used to lie, but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet, and muted echoes sound.....
then I remember,
it's where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road, and up beyond the hill,
then I remember,
it can't be yours..... your golden voice is still.
But I'll take that vacant spot of floor and empty muted hall,
and lay them with the absent voice and unused dish along the wall.
I'll wrap these treasured memories in a blanket of my love,
and keep them for my best friend until we meet above.

Sego Canyon Rock Art & Ghost Town, Utah

Sego Canyon contains three culturally distinct styles of rock art: Fremont, Ute and Barrier-style. A well preserved ghost town and ruins of a coal mine are located nearby.

Use it or loss it.........

Billions of years ago, you were a big bang, but now you're a complicated human being.

And then we cut ourselves off and don't feel that we're still the big bang, but you are. Depends how you define yourself. You are actually—if this is the way things started, if there was a big bang in the beginning—you're not something that's a result of the big bang. You're not something that is a sort of puppet on the end of the process. You are still the process. You are the big bang, the original force of the universe, coming on as whoever you are. When I meet you I see not just what you define yourself as...I see every one of you as the primordial energy of the universe coming on at me in this particular way. I know I'm that too, but we've learned to define ourselves as separate from it.

—Alan Watts, The Nature Of Consciousness

Massive 1,100 year old Maya site discovered in Georgia's mountains?

Archaeological zone 9UN367 at Track Rock Gap, near Georgia’s highest mountain, Brasstown Bald, is a half mile (800 m) square and rises 700 feet (213 m) in elevation up a steep mountainside. Visible are at least 154 stone masonry walls for agricultural terraces, plus evidence of a sophisticated irrigation system and ruins of several other stone structures. Much more may be hidden underground. It is possibly the site of the fabled city of Yupaha, which Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto failed to find in 1540, and certainly one of the most important archaeological discoveries in recent times.

It's stunning, how fast the destruction proceeds. Every day that passes, the world is in worse shape.

Something to think about.....

To the impersonal dreamer belongs all infinity-
he is the lord of the universe and taster of all the
beauties of the stars.


Anasazi ruins.......

The Anasazi culture emerged, in the south western USA, long before the whites arrived and left a great amount of archaeological evidence. That can be seen now in the territory of the Four Corners, crossed by the modern borders of the four states of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado.
