writing to know, knowing thru being, being for writing... this is me, writing about the one thing i know, which is myself... and even that is sometimes a mystery...

quote of the day

for lack of better things to post on, here's something i heard on democracy now! (which is, by far, the most remarkable podcast and progressive radio news program i've ever listened to and comes highly recommended.)

in environmental news, british scientists have determined that 2005 was the warmest year on record in the northern hemisphere and the second warmest year overall since the 1860's, when reliable records began. this comes as the independent of london has published a dire warning from the well-known scientist james lovelock, who believes that the world is already past the point of no return for global warning. lovelock writes:

"before this century is over, billions of us will die, and the few breeding pairs that survive will be those in the arctic, where the climate remains tolerable."

thinking now about the idea of posting quotes, the meaning of them and what it means to do so, how it's a prevalent trend on many blogs, and how that's kinda funny, as they're merely transcribed sound bytes. i'd like to splice them all together and make a blended blank from them.

and how much of what we post anyway is a quote in itself? (that is, how much of what we write is genuine? it's all been said before...)

more later,

    That is so true. I often wonder when we are bombarded with so much in terms of media, ideas, BLOGS, websites, etc.. if there is any original thought any more.

    Great post...will hopefull make some people think and challenge themselves a bit more.

    steve- hi! long time no word from you. thanks for your comments. yeah, hopefully some magnificent wave of brilliant clear thought splashes thru and around us and carries us away to new horizons and revolutions in space

    ray- um... wow, kinda outta the blue on that one. i don't know why you would think so, but i definitely don't hate you. i'm not even mildly upset at you. we haven't even spoken in like a week, so i don't know where you're getting the basis for that remark. sorry dude but i'm not going to apologize on my own blog for something i didn't even do.

    lol, I was most certainly NOT asking for an apology.
