People think I’m sucking off the system because I’m disabled, when it was in fact the system that disabled me…  People are generally judgemental and self assuming…  Most are envious and suppose I lay around all day sipping lemonade.  Nothing could be farther from the truth!  Work is where you find it, and I do quite a lot without any pay at all.  Not my fault they can’t spell: ‘Career’…  That doesn’t look right…  How do you spell ‘Career’? I do the things I love to do: all of it involves work.  Who needs pay when you have a purpose higher than serving people fatty cow meat?  There’s an ethical question involved too, and a competence factor…  People are always promoted to just the position they can’t master: I see more people suffering as a result of how they’re treated in society via a lack of responsible, congenial, competent public servants, administrators, Doctors, Dentists, etc..  So my theory is:  Everything is backwards… 

If you’re sick for instance, how do they expect you to have the energy to go to a Doctor?  There was a time when they came to you!  What logic is there in fighting disease when you cram people with various viruses in the same waiting room?  In Queens English, work doesn’t work!  Why is it that Tennis Players make millions every year for playing a ‘game’, and construction workers can’t afford to buy their own homes?  Backwards!  You want fair? If everyone helped everyone else, no one need suffer for goods and services at all! 

Those who clean your offices keep the air clean so you don’t get sick!  How are they less valuable than highly paid Scientists who just sit around and think all day?  We tell people not to smoke, and then sell them cigarettes!  What kind of backward CRAP is that?  I tell you, the whole system has to be wiped out, and revised!  If you work a day, you should have a day off to pursue other interests rather than them owning you lock, stock and barrel! (barrel?)  How did that get in there?  Help me build my house, and I’ll help you build yours, rather than someone who didn’t do the work should occupy…  So backwards!!  What say you?

Where Does God Live?

Below is a response I gave to Pat…  I presently await her answer.  Some of you know her, and some don’t!  She is very close to God and before I begin, I want you to know that I do respect her beliefs, and have felt the presence of a superior being working within my life as well.  So the object of this post is NOT to deny God’s existence, but to get answers.  I thought perhaps if I widen my scope of enquiry, it my improve my understanding of God!  Comprehending me?  Anyway, this below, was my questioning to her.  You must go to her site to see how this all began.  Click on: ‘One Wish’ and read the comments section for the whole scoop:  https://patcegan.wordpress.com/2015/08/21/one-wish/

 

Dear Darling One; How did you get so wise huh? You make people pick up their Bibles! According to Heb. 11:1 ‘Faith is the assured expectation of what is hoped for,+ the evident demonstration* of realities that are not seen.’ I was a Jehovah’s Witness. They used to be called ‘Bible Students’ because they know the Bible so well! Too bad they don’t put it into practice… Anyway, they have a great site for grabbing quotes from the Bible and much more:  http://www.jw.org/en/
You surprised me that you used quantum mechanics as a rhealm where impossibilities become possible!

 

Lets move to the other end of the scale shall we? When a star dies, it releases all the elements that made us. We are literally composed of star-dust. Yes? So if the stars made us, how could God have done so? We can look back to the very beginning of the universe within every possible spectrum of light, and we haven’t found hide nor hair of the man? LOL! Add to this, if he is perfect, how on earth did he create such an imperfect being as us? All through life, we find that everything we’re told is a lie. Yet I’m supposed to believe what sounds like the biggest whopper of all! And since time did not exist before the beginning of the universe, how could God have existed to make the thing?

 

Since organised religion could never answer me, and I have caught them in mistakes like: ‘God will not create life anywhere else until He perfects us!’ Yet now we know there are, as a conservative estimate, 33 billion Earth like planets in our galaxy alone (not including exo-moons), any one of which, an advanced being with what we’d call supernatural powers could have emerged from… And since a star moved across the sky, and then hovered over a manager, it’s hard not to think: ‘Space-craft’ And since Religion has zip for answers, I’m inclined to have questions. I do NOT deny that God exists. I simply feel that He talks to us in ways that people could understand 2000 years ago. Yet by expanding an element of mystery to His nature, He looks larger and more powerful than us.

 

He says we can’t see Him because He’s a spirit, yet if He made us in his image, as having a spiritual nature as well, then why not? And since we are now on the verge of being able to greatly extend our own lives, and learning more every day about how to improve our own way of life, why do we need Him? I know… Just saying this stuff makes me feel like The Anti-Christ, but these are very pertinent questions to me! In fact, I may copy this as a blog, and just see who has the answers… What say you?

Shutter Bug Hunger

Introduction:

You can conjure pictures out of thin air, if you have that rare appetite to invent a theme, when the weather does not so co-operate: say, in winter, when most outdoor shots look pretty much the same.  They are mostly white with most interest buried in snow!  As in my case, this posses a significant problem when you are far enough north that the cold can actually damage your camera…

If it were not for your persistent ‘Shutter Bug Hunger’, the situation would appear insurmountable.  So last winter, I began to consider my options for indoor pictures that fall under the category of: ‘Still Life’…  And quite naturally, it requires a considerable imagination to stir up interest in non-living every day objects, scattered about your house in their various hiding places.  I came up with three sets of shots to kill the boredom of winter: the first of which, I present to you now, in trust that you will glean inspiration, bring life to the stories behind how objects about us, help to define who we are!

How to Conqure The Impossible…

I was first given to consider, what if someone doesn’t have a fancy, wide-angle lens?  Then my eyes fell on Leslie’s dusty Crystal ball.  She may claim to see the future, yet I saw a way to cram a large area into a small space, using a simple 50 mm. macro lens.  What Leslie finds interesting to collect, also defines her character, taste and beliefs…

Another glass object shows elegance in form and simplicity of design.  The would make for an excellent still life for defining light and shadow, and how they may co-exist to animate what one might mistake for lifelessness.  I think the designer was shooting for movement within the piece, when light reflects through it.

Or, one might hover above an object that still reflects light from the window, yet rest on a homogenous background, giving all attention to the a single object, strategically placed as a desktop wallpaper, with plenty of room for icons on the left…

This is a cup from one of Leslie’s ‘Royal Dalton’ collection…  They come from England, are quite expensive, and surprisingly tiny.  This is actually a macro shot!  The mistake I made, was not to place something beside it that you’d know the size of, like a bag of milk or something.  LOL!  You may be surprised to know that she finds these things in Thrift shops for 50 cents each!  Delicate, with excellent craftmanship that describes an eye for beauty that many would over-look…

The upside is that I clean everything spotless so it shines and provides for less ‘clone stamp’ processing work later in Photoshop.  Enjoy the slide show, and keep in mind that this represents less than a third of what I found just laying about the house screaming: ‘PICK ME!!’  as an excellent opportunity to challenge your own imagination, in the dead of night perhaps: for one seldom knows when shutter bug hunger may strike :O)
