Sea foam on a windy beach at night in Pine Knoll Shores, NC (AKA: What I did for Earth Hour):
I think it's cool how the humidity shows up in some of the was in between rain showers.

Because Nora is today...right this moment in...London (! ) - (school trip) - I thought I'd post some random photos from my trip there (2 years ago in June) after my Paris research trip (on Louise Talma - another post or 5 there...). Synchronicity is a kind of cosmicity. Enjoy!

You know you're not in the US when...

Yes, I HAD to go to...

Cool graffiti there...

THE crosswalk...
Kitsch store at the underground station (St. John's Wood):

And now for something completely different...the Tate Modern...

View of the Thames from the cafe on top of the Tate Modern:

Delicious cappucino...*loved* the design!

Woman communing with herself at the Tate Modern...

I think this might qualify as a Zen koan...

This one just made me laugh...

I treated myself to a show in London, my first! It was wicked good!

Happy trip back, Norita! See you soon!

More cosmic Chicago sites, well just one really

A month ago I was in Chicago (is it really that long ago already?! My, time flies! I must be having fun...) and I went to the Museum of Modern Art. The art was very cool and stopped me a number of times and made me reconsider reality in some way - something I expect museums of modern art to do. But my favorite part of the place was the staircase. Check it out:

There is a goldfish pond at the bottom:

But what really fascinated me was the rest of it...pretty cool, hunh? I was compelled to take more photos than really necessary! I love it when that happens!

Cool bathroom in Chicago - more visuals

I went to this cool early music concert by the Newberry Consort (What a Difference a Day Makes: Venetian Music for Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday) when I was in Chicago and was so utterly excited by the bathroom I had to go back upstairs to get my camera and take these photos:

What fun! I get energy from such things! A virtual visual feast for the eyes she said in ecsatatic redundancy! Oh, yes, and upstairs was none too shabby neither (St. Clement Church):

All in all, an evening well spent - my eyes and ears and energy were filled and inspired. Thanks, MLA!

Cardinal (male) in snow - visual yumminess!

Really there is no need for words...
