Entry #208: Aurelia's Oratorio

A scene from Aurelia's Oratorio makes it way to my brains often. The Lace Scene, for lack of a better title. Lace means to ensnare-- perfectly fitting although in the case of lace-- its much more fluid-- planned.

Lace deserves its spot in American history, with the founding of the The Quaker Lace Company of Philadelphia in 1911 (although its owners began shop in 1889). The company mass produced and marketed lace with a zeal, and even created the first lace tablecloth.. then it went bankrupt in the 90s (probably in a PE deal)... ta-da!

Entry #203: Ah, we meet again

It may be a general principle that the transcriptional targets of a signaling pathway is repressed in the absence of its signal. I read that line in some chemistry book and tried to place it in a social context. My thesis is that estranging from people is an authentic example of a weakening social fabric which leads to an intense attraction with the self. Never mind the friends, school, work, domestic chores, and...

And in the absence of activity there is a revival of inner thought, self-observation, and self-analysis. This is not a good way of attaching oneself to another. In a sense, we consist of large movements of centrifugal like bodies who disperse existence beyond our limits.

So to sit and contemplate and reflect is personal and egotistical. His passions produce nothing and so they are futile imaginings. And what he states is love is not so. It's a meditation on his love (my brain is hurting).

Egotistical bastard that makes others worry and the mere push for change of some sort is swept aside as if though he is that one person who could reflect on his own consciousness. It is impossible to produce action in a purely undetermined state!

So lad, your own wretched misery has been antiqued and studied. And I am not to blame.

Entry #201:

The High Line is one of those places that everyone at work is exclaiming glory, hallelujah over. I walked there and thought it strange that no one does exactly what we want. Relevant questions like these tend to occur at high places.

Entry #200: View International Space Station this weekend!

This is why it pays to view NASA press releases:

Space Station Appearing Nationwide Over July 4 Weekend

As America celebrates its 233rd birthday this holiday weekend, there will be an extra light in the sky along with the fireworks. Across the country, Americans will be treated to spectacular views of the International Space Station as it orbits 220 miles above Earth.

Many locations will have unusually long sighting opportunities of as much as five minutes, weather permitting, as the station flies almost directly overhead.

Entry #196: Economic Ties

Somehow we got in the crowd and watched the candlelight vigil. I teared up (it couldn't be helped). We snapped photos and wondered aloud about US economic ties to mainland China. Currently, Hong Kong and Taipei are de facto democracies (they say).

but but but

they still suppress the media!
they still hold prisoners from that fateful June day
and women's rights? pfft!

but economically speaking (ahhh...)

le sigh.
