Pete Shelly’s voice (RIP) was the sound out there… on vinyl and first shows at the Santa Monica Civic. The Germs , Darby, was on the punk streets. By a strange tweak they come together now so many years later. They don’t seem like they want us to forget them…. and how can we.

Symbols are interesting


 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. ~ genesis.

essence of our limitations

William Blake Image form The William Blake Tarot Cards. ~ Ed Buryn

I captured this very small image on a William Blake Tarot Card. I enlarged the image on my iPhone camera.  I have a magnifying glass to look over all of his images. There is always something on the cards hiding. This is on the card entitled “EXPERIENCE.”

It is inevitable that I will accumulate experience in living my life. Moving forward even if only sitting in a chair. I value experience over anything. I have learned that part of growing as a human being is living with paradox, polarity and something more. That is why I love Blake, he gives me something more. A vast view of life where opposites blend. I then understand my own limitations. There is an inevitable message Blake puts into his work. If I look close enough I joyfully grasp his messages.

The urge to cure the incurable keeps us from recognizing the essence of our limitations, and the limits that come with the psychopathic essence of personality. Praxis Pg. 167, The Dream and the Underworld – James Hillman


An inevitable experience was hearing this song played on the Drive In Speaker between movies in the 1970’s. Glad I found it.

Palomar Observatory

Due North from the observatory…the little blue circular something in the Forrest

These images define our journey to find the Elf that talked to Hale! The one that inspired a great mind as Hale’s to ask The Rockefeller Foundation to fund his telescopes! We did not find the Elf, instead we traveled up a holy holy mountain that applies modern scientific technology to study the cosmos! We took the tour of the Palomar Observatory, had a feast under some redwoods and I did spy a rather odd circular spot due north from the observatory!  It seemed, to me, to be very mysterious !! Maybe it was spying on us?
