I am at
The Biographical Crossroads
Of me life.
I see too well the handwriting on the page.

Maturity outpacing happiness
Decision outweighing action
Daily life souring limelight

Roles changing as family grows.
Health roulette, the hidden foe.
No longer the target audience,
Left behind as the wave of life roars onward
Pray only that life abandons me upon the shore of a pleasant desert isle

Sunset orange
Pumpkin skies
The air like
Frosted pumpkins
Adirondack Autumn

Old Dog

Old dog

Old dog
Moves slowly

Old dog

What does old dog think?

Why, old dog?
Why old dog.
Why anything?

Time travel, slowly,
Is old dog
Is why old dog

Time travel
In real time
Is not travel at all

If each us is stationary
If each us is alone unmoved
As all else moves around each instance of a nuclear us
What is it where we intersect?

Can we tilt our paddles
into the water of time
And alter our speed or direction?

What is left behind
When old dog dies?
What where when?

Little Big Love

Crazy good stop-motion animation about a little robot. . .
Little Big Love is an award winning stop-motion short in which a tiny robot falls in love with an electric kettle. The whole project was written, directed, and animated by Tomas Mankovsky with a total budget of less than $500. - Geeks are Sexy -
The creator's Little Big Love website offers the movie in hi-def and also includes a cool "the making of" photo essay.

Insects Beware! Miniature Swarm Robots

Way cool! Micro-swarm robots! or is that Swarm Micro-robots? (the given name, "i-swarm" is pretty lame - someone needs to kill that "i" before everything meme).


Humanoid Robot Olympics

Check out this robot pulling a basket full of bottles. The designers really did a good job emulating human pulling.

Monty Python Man Lives!

After all these years, the Monty Python "It's" man has been spotted squatting on a nude beach in an undisclosed location. Or perhaps this is his son! Either that or he has been using a LOT of Grecian formula!

Night Vision

Dark swirls on purple grey
Dance across my vision today.

With closed or open eyes I see
This pattern that envelopes me.

T'is not a poem of darkness & woe
But my own personal light show.

{Lay in a darkened - but not pitch black - room and stare unfocused at the ceiling. Do you see purple and lime-yellow swirls? I've seen them as long as I can remember & figure its just an artifact of our optic sensory apparati and nerves}
