Emotional Week

Got back today from a very emotionally taxing week (not going into details because it involves someone else whose privacy is important to me). Suffice it to say that these pictures that I took tonight reflect my somber mood (click on the picture if you wish to enlarge it):

Easter Island Heads

I saw this article linked to on a messageboard...digging around the Easter Island heads reveals they have entire bodies buried underneath them, planted deep into the ground.

Excerpt from the linked article:

Easter Island is perhaps best known for its immense stone statues ‘Moai’, of which there are approximately 900 scattered across the island. Some of the Maoi were placed, facing towards the centre of the island, on platforms called ‘Ahu’, built along the coasts. Captain Cook was told in 1774 that they were monuments to earlier ‘ariki’s', or royalty. The ‘Maoi’ are also described in local tradition as having once possessed ‘mana’ or a beneficial power.

All Easter Island’s giant statues were supposedly made within the space of a few hundred years. Different phases are clearly discernible, and may be separated by far longer periods than orthodox opinion allows. It is significant that the statues do not bear the slightest resemblance to the Polynesians, and in terms of size, appearance, and number are unique in the Pacific.

All the giant statues on Easter Island have long ears, and some islanders still practised ear elongation at the time the first Europeans arrived.
The elongated ear lobes on these images is interesting to me because it is a feature that is also seen in some African tribes, and in Asian Buddha statues.  Not really sure why that is interesting to me, maybe "curious" is a better word...not sure how this all fits into today's world and things that have happened in Biblical times. I've read some people on the messageboard question the possibility of a Nephilim connection.... hmmmm, perhaps...

Marxism vs Fabian Socialism

Saw a link on Ma's blog. Watched it and it cleared up something for me (the distinction and the battle that we are experiencing in today's politics). This video clearly shows what is going on in this country today. We have outright Marxists (who want to make the change to the "New World Order" through revolution, they want it quick) and Fabian Socialists, like President Bush (both) who wanted to bring it about slowly, over time. They both (Marxists and Fabians) want the same goal ("New World Order"), but they have different ideas about how to reach their common goal (gradually over time -Fabians or very quickly through a revolution-Marxists). Wow. Ok. Now I get it!

Here's the link:

I was only 3/4 of the way through this, so I'm going to have to get back to this later and watch it all again, because I have some other things that I need to get done right now....but, wow, this hit me like a ton of bricks, so maybe it's best that I mull over this stuff and go over it again. Whew!

Be sure to read the Agenda 21 pdf file (United Nations conference on Sustainable Development)

The Last Duchess of Russia

I watched about the story of Olga, the sister of Nicholas II today. I wanted to find out a little more about that time (I'm slogging my way through a book about Rasputin) ... so I  watched a series about the Romanovs on Youtube, and then this one, about Olga. The story about Olga is so beautiful! It has sorrow, intrigue, passion, pomp and ceremony, her humanity and simplicity, and her amazing talent as an artist! That and so much more! I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did:

Ma, You've inspired me!

A few pics I took of clouds last Wednesday (yesterday) at sunset (about 8 pm). I took these just after work. I stopped off at my local grocery store a few miles from where I live, and thought the clouds were so beautiful, and decided to see if I could take pictures that would rival Ma's ;-) jk

And here are a few that I took tonight (Thursday), again at dusk (about 8 pm) just before the storm hit:
