"The most elusive period of our lives occurs from birth to about the age of five. Mysterious and otherworldly, infancy and early childhood are surrounded later in life by a curious amnesia, broken by flashes of memory that come upon us unbidden, for the most part, with no coherent or reliable context. With their sensorial, almost cellular evocations, these memories seem to reside more in the body than the mind; yet they are central to our sense of who we are to ourselves.. . . . . .  More >

Homo Sapiens c. 21st century A.D.
Thinks that we (he and she, such as we are)
are pretty hot stuff.
We're all here, in this little site,
are we not, in the belief that the best is yet to come.
Perhaps,
just perhaps,
we've got a little ways to go,
just to get back to where we (such as we are)
have already been.
Kinda got derailed back there some time ago.
Maybe the best IS still yet to come.
It is, however, gonna be maybe a kinda rough ride
gettin' there.
Only thing is, there is no other way to go.
Keep the vision crankin',
and make it become.
Just a thought.
Dissident opinions notwithstanding.
One thing we know for sure, is that Nobody Knows.

In this summer of angst and grim foreboding about what further assaults against common sense and common decency the Bush Administration might inflict upon the people of the world, how many times during the day do those of us -- still possessed of mind, heart and conscience -- take pause, hoping we've seen the worst of it, then, fearing we haven't yet, attempt to push down the dread rising within us, so that we might simply make it through the day and be able to rest at night?  More >

Here's another ingredient for the soup.
A little more aware.
A little more aware.
A little more aware,
and who ever knows,
that maybe one day,
there may come forth a Voice,
to speak of the way
towards planet Blue.

TRANSCRIPT

NARRATOR (JACK FORTUNE): This is a film that demands action. It reveals that we may have grossly underestimated the speed at which our climate is changing. At its heart is a deadly new phenomenon. One that until very recently scientists refused to believe even existed. But it may already have led to the starvation of millions. Tonight Horizon examines for the first time the power of what scientists are calling Global Dimming.
NARRATOR: September 12th 2001, the aftermath of tragedy. While America mourned, the weather all over the country was unusually fine. Eight hundred miles west of New York, in Madison, Wisconsin a climate scientist called David Travis was on his way to work. (more)  More >
