Camera Critters # 26

Click on badge to see other critter entries


A few weeks ago as W.P. and I were driving home from the peach orchard, we spotted this beautiful painted turtle crossing the road. W.P. pulled over and ran to rescue it from passing cars. We took it for a little ride to a local lake surrounded by woodse, which is a part of a local reservoir. Enjoy, critter lovers!

I'm probably entry number 999, but here is my Sky Watch post.

(If I sound a tad like Eyeore, it's because I had a very bad day. All I wanna do is go back to Nova Scotia).








Cape Breton
Summer, 2008

These were taken at the same place and on the same day, over the course of a couple of hours.

So is it a fucking crime to rebel against being an adult at the age of 49? ;-) Work sucked today, so there ya go - The Ramones, I don't Wanna Grow Up

Love you guys!

Many thanks to Tom, Sandy, IMAC , Klaus & Ivar for hosting Skywatch Friday

War

I've been a peacenik and a lover of American popular music since 1967 when at the age of eight, I came with my family from Portugal to live in The States. The Vietnam War had a profound impact even on me, a mere child. Back then, of course, the war footage was shown on television and ground battle was far less "efficient", I'm sure. I recall feeling repulsed and sad by the killing and destruction.

I think the single most powerful social movement I've experienced since coming to this country was the anti-Vietnam movement and the Woodstock generation, or whatever you want to call it. The Cold War with the Soviet Union was another phenomenon that influenced how I feel about war, peace, politics and international relations.

Just a bit of a preamble to the introduction of this song I found on a great website/blog called Yo! What Happened to Peace! I believe strongly that politics and art do mix and that art can be a powerful tool for social and political change. Here is Adam Stern performing War, with artwork by Mear One.

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
