Cambodian Trees

The haunting images in the slide show below are from the Haunting 3D Images Projected Onto Trees post at TwistedSifter. They’re strange, and maybe even a little creepy, but at the same time so very cool too!

A 90125 Nightcap…

Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder, and the personal connection, if any, that different people have with a particular work of art is entirely dependent upon the individual life experiences that formed their worldviews. 90125, by English rock band Yes, is one of my all-time favorite albums.

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

My apologies to Robert A. Heinlein fans for borrowing the title of one of the master’s great works, but I’m hoping the logic will be clear by the end. When I first embarked upon my long odyssey through the mental health system, I was asked to draw a picture (in one of those “art therapy”…
