In Search of Darkness?

The following image has been borrowed from David Dickinson’s In Search of Darkness: the Battle Against Light Pollution article over at Universe Today: As gorgeous as that image is, however, what truly grabbed my attention was what he said in his opening paragraph (bold type added by me): “A good majority of modern Americans have…

“Spacehead” Reflections

“You’re an interesting species. An interesting mix. You’re capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you’re not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we’ve found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.” The Alien from Contact

How Time Travel Works?!?!

I wake up every morning at nine and grab for the morning paper. Then I look at the obituary page. If my name is not on it, I get up. ~ Benjamin Franklin I swear that it seems Mother Nature is determined to drag me screaming and kicking into alignment with that old “early to…

And Here We Go Again!

Well it’s Friday again my friends, and, just like last Friday, I’m sitting here watching a marathon of episodes from a favorite show ahead of another season premiere tonight. Hopefully, this time around won’t include any of the crazy drama that I reported on in this post and in this post. Of course, I am…

Damn – No “Haven” in that Storm!

Oh dear, it appears that “The Gawds” were angered by my choice of A “Haven” In The Storm as the title for my last post, because, after watching the Haven marathon all day yesterday and anxiously awaiting (with DVR set) last night’s Season 3 premiere…

A “Haven” In The Storm

I think that we’re all mentally ill; those of us outside the asylums only hide it a little better – and maybe not all that much better, after all.
